Welcome to this week's installment of WIP Wednesday! :) I actually don't have too many knitting projects going right now. That's the downside to the ridiculous heat we've been having - it really dissuades you from working with wool! I'm still plugging away on the baby blanket - I'm almost done with the third pattern repeat and still on the first ball of yarn. I just started working on the next DKD pattern (hint: it's going to be perfect for holiday gift-giving, and you may even want to make one for yourself!). My main WIP right now is the Mariner Pullover. This one is for the baby-to-be, and depending on how quickly I finish it, my goal is to make Robert the same sweater in a different color. Then I can use them for Christmas, and instead of knitting Caitlyn a sweater, I'm going to sew her Christmas dress. I'm thinking about re-using the Easter dress pattern, but using a fancy Christmas plaid. I'm also thinking about using a dressier fabric than cotton, but we'll see how adventurous I feel. :)
My next step is to work across the center stitches, put them on a holder, and work the right sleeve. The little strip on the neck edge will go behind the center section. The instructions say to sew non-functional buttons on through both layers, but I think I'm going to sew on snaps, then top with cute buttons.
Oh, I'm not blocking it, I just pinned it out so you could get the full effect (stockinette rolling the way it does and all).
That's all for today, folks! I have to go mark smocking lines for a maternity dress that I'm making and cut strips for a quilt-a-long that I joined (because I don't have enough else to do right now) before the kids wake up. Oh, and fold laundry, because the Domestic Knitter occasionally does 'domestic' things around the house. ;)
