Saturday Stash

Today, I'm bringing exactly one finished item.  Afraid I've been not knitting very much.  Too busy visiting and sight-seeing.  More on that in another post.

I clicked the needles extra fast so that I could have something to report that was finished.  And here it is...a basic kimono jacket for baby.  Comfy Kimono is very simple.  Very quick to knit.  And I think very easy for a baby to wear.  This one goes in the craft sale box.  I've discovered that I'm not very good at predicting what will sell.  It seems that my knitting adventures don't always coincide with what the buyers want.  I'm pretty confident with this one, though.

Progress is being made on the cardigan but I've only just reached the mid-point of the back.  I've not been too stressed about getting it done since the weather is still warm and I doubt I'll be needing it for a few weeks. 

And, while I spent time on ferries, this was my travel knitting.  I am now halfway through the second sock.  It's definitely a good thing to have had the long period of time in between socks.  I've found at least three errors in how I wrote the pattern.  And we're not done yet.

While the weather is good, I think I'll dye some more of the sock yarn.  I still have four blanks to play with and I have some ideas.  Always a good combination.

I dunno. To me it looks like you got a lot of knitting done!

I love the little kimono. And yes, it looks user friendly!

Yes, the kimono is darling! Almost enough to make me want another baby. HAR! I giggled at the thought of your knitting needles moving extra fast, all that clicking going on!

I too giggled at the thought of your knitting needles moving very fast! It's as though we bloggers are a gun to your head!
Love the kimono, wishing I was a baby so I could wear it! I bet it sells the minute it's put on the shop floor.
