I didn't make much headway on any knitting this weekend. I know I have tomorrow but it doesn't look like I will be able to go back to anything I want to finish. I had to work all day today and then met up with friends afterwards which was great because I am going to be working tomorrow and both days next weekend as well so it was nice to get some fun in there. Even though I didn't knit, I still managed to order lots of yarn last night and I pre-ordered Coastal Knits today which I am super excited about because I get to download two patterns before the book gets here next month AND as part of the pre-order package I also get 50% off coupons for patterns on the Never Not Knitting site and on Knitbot (the book is a collaboration of Alana Dakos from Never Not Knitting and Hannah Fetig's designs). I am looking forward to casting on my first sweater for myself from this book.
Tomorrow during my lunch break I am heading to Looped Yarn Works to buy three skeins of worsted weight yarn. We have a friend coming into town this weekend and I am determined to make a sweater for his tiny son by then. I guess he's not so small anymore- it has been over a year since we have seen him but he will always be tiny to us I guess (the baby, not the friend). I am going to use the stripey sweater pattern again but in a larger size and I am doing it in one color, either grey or brown, and using little wooden buttons to give it a nice grown up look. I think this baby can definitely pull off this sophisticated style. Excited!!
