A while back, I knitted a variety of things with some Caron Simply Soft that I swear was baby or sport weight. I liked it for the premie caps, so I bought some more when it was on sale. Yesterday, looking for something simple and portable to take to an event, I pulled out the yarn and discovered that what I bought was not baby weight but worsted weight. What to do, what to do?
Well, how about casting on a One Skein Baby Cardigan?
The pattern is from an advanced beginner class class I took at Cass Street Depot, and was designed exclusively for them by Jackie Young. It's a great little project for learning sweater design without having to work through six skeins of yarn. When I took the class, I was just returning to knitting and felt pretty clueless. (Why were those women using circular needles? And why did they smile so knowingly when I asked? And, my god, I'm the only one not keeping up!) Now, I am savvy enough to use circs and to knit both sides of the front at the same time. Aren't I a big girl now!
This week is the all-employee event at work, an outdoor picnic with softball, flag football, cornhole (a.k.a. Hoosier horse shoes), dunk tanks for charity, etc. My bifocals rule out ball handling and my shoulders aren't much for throwing things, so I plan to sit in the shade and knit. What knits well in warm weather?
