12m/12p/12boy - mlj1954 - May projects progress pics

Another nephew's wife is pregnant with a girl due in September but going to be a C-section in August.

I started this "five hour sweater" on Saturday, May 1 on my way from Cleveland to Cincinnati.  Obviously, since this is FRIDAY, either I cannot handle a five hour sweater or there is no such animal.  Anyway, this one is being made with Bernat yarns (Baby Jacquard adds the color).  I am also going to make a hat and booties and maybe another sweater using pink as the main color!

Early May entry

One scarf in CPY Kid Merino. 1 1/2 ball was used to create this one - pattern is my idea. Finished it this morning.

12m/12p/12boy mlj1954 finished projects

And I did five towels and one scrubber . . . which, I kept for myself. woo hoo.

12m/12p/12boy" mlj1954

A variety of strange stuff.  But first, the sweater set that I made way back in January was made for this lovely lady . . . my most recent great niece, Hannah Mae.

Okay, now, everyone say, ahhhhhhh.

April FOs

Hi everyone - I had a busy month, getting a bunch of things finished that I started earlier in the year.

First up is my Seneca sweater which I'm absolutely thrilled with! I started this in mid-February and finished it on April 4. The designer is Jared Flood and the yarn is Madelinetosh Vintage - the colorway is Tart. I used 1233 yards (thank heavens for friends with scraps!).

I started my son's sweater on January 9 - it's a rugby sweater from Knitpicks and a sad tale indeed. I first made him a sweater last year from KP worsted weight and it now fits the cat! Here he is looking sad that the sweater shrank, wearing his new sweater:

And modeling the new sweater:

I used 1400 yards of Plymouth Encore DK for this sweater. It was a fast, fun knit. ETA: I forgot to take an in progress picture so I realize this one doesn't count - but wanted to show you my "ugh" - so, so sad...

And finally - tah dah! I finished my Frog Pond Socks, designed by our own Adrienne Fong. Loved this pattern! I used about 350 yards of Madelinetosh Sock in colorway Fathom. I started these socks March 16. They would have gone faster but I had to knit a seekrit sample sock in between. Hopefully I can post photos of that soon!

April Project!

Here's my April project, which I promise was actually finished in April. (Barely.) It really, really needed to be blocked before I took photos, so here it finally is.

The pattern is Judy Marples' Calais Shawl, the yarn is Miss Babs Bamboo Baby, in an unknown colorway which I purchased at Stitches South last year.

April progress - May start

The Clandestine Socks are progressing slowly, but surely. There are some "Why am I doing this?' moments, but on the whole, it moves forward. The Starry yarn is fun to look at and soft.

My May start is the September selection from The Unique Sheep's Ram Club, a sock club for men. The pattern is called Intersector Socks, a tessellated cable pattern, worked in gradiated yarn, in four progressively darker colors. The cuff is finished, but I have a few other projects on the needles too.
