Yet another post about knitting projects...

Here's the next project I'm starting.

I've been assured by my mother that it's a simple pattern and within my abilities. I've been inspired to start one after a friend successfully completed her baby sweater project. The pattern I'm using is about 40 years old and I'm only going to do the sweater. It's for a baby due on April 2nd, so let's hope it doesn't take me too long to knit it up and piece it together.

In other news I was pleasantly surprised by these mittens gifted to me by a knitting Aunt! They fit perfectly, and they couldn't have come at a better time - we're in the midst of a snow/freezing rain storm. There's not a lot of snow, and it's not terribly stormy, but warm mittens will be needed tomorrow morning when I have to scrape the ice off the car. So thank-you Aunt S. - because I know you're reading this. *grin*

Millie really likes the mittens too! (Did you rub catnip on them?)

Oh my gosh, I have that book too!! Well, I stole it from my mother. I tried making one of the sweaters but gave up after awhile (due to my own boredom). I would pick it up again if I could remember where I was in the pattern. I think it'll end up frogged. Good luck with your baby sweater!

I stole the book from my mom too! So far the pattern seems pretty straight forward, but I think it's going to get more complicated quickly - double pointed needles are required in another 18 rows! Eeek
