I was in the midst of knitting up a pair of baby Blu jeans (pattern may be found on knitty and in Mason-Dixon Knitting)...
... when I had the urge to knit something not baby-related.
This is Clapotis, which also may be found at knitty. I am probably the last knitter alive who has not made one of these, but when I saw some knit from Cascade Pima Tencel on Ravelry, I could resist no longer. I purchased the Pima Tencel a long time ago, tried it with several patterns but did not like any of the results. It seems perfect for a shawl/wrap/scarf thingy because it is quite drapey.
Public Service Announcement: XMAS IS COMING, sooner than you think. If I want to gift handmade socks again this year, I'd better get going on that.
BTW, the baby shower was a success. My daughter's BF organized it and helped me clean the house beforehand(!) and decorated. I cooked up a ton of food that was greeted enthusiastically by the crowd (you'd think these people had never eaten homemade potato salad before). We ate, my daughter opened a boatload of gifts, we ate some more, then everyone cleared out. Fun, but whew!
