I cast on a new project last night – one I am very eager to get rolling on! The pattern is Livingston and simply just adorable. Here’s how impatient I am when starting a new project: I really wanted to make a 3 month size so that when my little bean is born it can wear this gem right away, but it turns out in order to make that size I would need a size 4, 16″ circular needle. The closest I had was a size 4, 24″ circular….so what did I do? Starting knitting the 12 months size, of course. I just couldn’t wait and the yarn was calling my name. I wonder how my patience will fare when I can’t actually wear this on my baby for a whole year…..I didn’t exactly think that one through last night.
I’m using Malabrigo Arroyo in this really beautiful smoldering gray. I greatly underexposed these pictures on purpose because it felt so moody and really highlighted the different tones in the yarn.
The rib pattern is nice too. It’s done done by p2, k1tbl. I haven’t done it before but it gives a nice stretchy ribbing.
I’m taking a few days off later this week and will be spending a few hours in the car — ‘gonna let Matt drive so I can work on this!
