For my Ubba (dad), who turned 62 on Friday and is sick in hospital, I'm knitting a scarf to keep him warm. I'm stash busting by using the Cascade 220 which I overbought (as per normal) for the mini flower basket (Vogue Fall 05). Colour - mustard. I haven't got a pattern but I'm thinking a textured knit, either a cable or a half woven stitch.
Next up I'm knitting a Debbie Bliss top from Special Knits for baby Fay who's 9mths now. I'm using Jaegar Aqua in India Cerise.
BTW, I did knit a beautiful dress for her which I was very naughty about and didn't blog my progress throughout. I'm just waiting for a photo of the gorgeous girl to show you all what she looks like in it. *Prompt Loulou*
And one for me. I've cast on Phildar Quietude for this gorgeous swing jacket from Phildar Autumn 06/07. Its the first time I've used any Phildar yarn or even seen a pattern book - love it, its my new Vogue.
The stitch here you see is the half woven stitch which I plan on using for Ubba's scarf.
Now for Jade. She's gorgeous, but I sense she is going to be a slow fairisle project.
Unfortunatley, those Norweigan socks have now taken a back burner... thats what happens with me a socks.
As for The Nosh and weening. *kvetch, kvetch, kvetch* Spoon in, spit out. Spoon in, spit out. Oy. Not only has he learnt to spit out over this weening process, he now has learnt how to watertight his mouth *sigh*.
Today possible breakthrough, I offered him banana... love it, loved it, loved it. YES. Until Hubby got his hands on him. Hubby fed him at 3pm and apparently got nisht. *Sigh* New day tomorrow, new start.
