Per several commentors' request, I give you this from Karalyn's first portrait sitting. We were shopping at Babies R Us a few nights ago. A girl from Kiddie Kandids approached us about a portrait sitting. I only agreed to do it because we would get free 8x10 print since it was for training purposes.
Karalyn was a bit sleepy and hungry but she obliged with a few poses. It's not easy to convince her to smile when she's suspicious of what you're doing.
Now, see that blue sweater she's wearing? That's the Baby Bolero from One Skein that I knit over the summer. It's in a newborn size but the cotton yarn stretched a bit. Right now it fits her like a cardigan with 3/4 sleeves. She's going to continue wearing it until one day it's just a short-sleeved, fitted shrug.
Don't ask me about Wiggles and Waves. Aargh.
The KP&S top down v-neck cardigan is coming along. I've passed the section to slip the stitches for the sleeves and now on to straight stockinette for the body. I dread this part because it's kind of boring, but I have a question for you all.
The pattern says to work in stockinette until the piece measures 9" from the top of the shoulder. What does that mean? Do I measure from where the middle of the shoulder hits the neckline?
Confession: for the past 9 months, I have kept a quiet resolution to myself about completing one knitted item per month. I have managed to do this even through the chaotic last month of my pregnancy and during the sleep-deprived months of new motherhood. However, October probably won't see a new FO unless a miracle happens with Wiggles and Waves.
Next week I will have more photos, including more cuteness! Halloween is coming up!
Have a great weekend!
