|Bella Cash yarn|
I can knit! I have a surprise baby 'thing' for my son and wanted to make a black Newborn Vertebrae to match. And yes, I know. You're probably asking, "Black? For a baby? What's wrong with you?" Once you see the 'thing' you'll understand. Anyway.... As it turns out, I'm knitting a dark gray Newborn Vertebrae and since the baby is going to be a girl, I'll add pink ribbing to girly it up.
I chose the gray, or Graphite to be exact, mainly because it was close to black and on sale. It's extremely difficult to find black yarn suitable for a newborn. Anyway, the colors are Graphite and Tulip and the yarn is Bella Cash. The yarn is so soft and I'm loving knitting with it. It's mostly superwash merino with a little cashmere thrown in.
|Laser Tag, Sock Labs Hawthorne|
After the Newborn Vertebrae, I want to knit something with this Sock Labs Hawthorne. The colorway is called Laser Tag. Several months ago Knit Picks had a few retro colorways of Hawthorne in their Sock Labs line and when it went on sale, I grabbed a pinkish and a blueish skein in preparation for the gender reveal. My plan all along has been to knit an Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise jacket but now I'm wondering. Once I finish the pink and gray Vertebrae I'll wind this yarn and see if it's going to stripe or 'blip' colorwise then I'll make decision.
And tomorrow is knitting group night at the yarn shop, and we all know what that means!
Meanwhile, think pink!
