Maggie is 15 weeks old!
Speaking of baby showers I went to that one at work and I'm going to another one this weekend so I've been busily knitting away at baby gifts. For this one I made a Little Pearl Vest. It knits up very quickly and easily and is a nice little vest. I don't think it's too girly if done in a very boyish colorway. Since it is almost all knit it's very fast. Size wise it's also very small which is okay as long as you're aware of that. According to the pattern notes it is meant to be snug anyway. I took up Gretchen's challenge to not count too carefully when doing the increases and failed miserably. I put too many increases at the beginning and not enough towards the end so it's kind of slanted when it comes together but it comes together so I'm going with it. I'll have to be a little bit more careful if I do this vest again. Although until I took this picture I never noticed the pooling along one side- oh well!
Still not much going on on the reading front. Just too busy these days. Come and yarn along with us at Ginny's place.
