Sucked in

I've been sucked into Zimmermania after spending far too much cruising that blog, admiring all the wonderful knits. With my niece expecting her first baby in August, I have the perfect excuse to indulge in some baby knitting.

This is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in the Ravenswood colorway. I plan to cast on a Baby Surprise Jacket with this yummy yarn, just as soon as I wind it into pretty little yarn cakes. Since we don't know the gender of the baby, this seemed like a good bet. And, the baby's Mom and Dad both love blue, so hopefully this will be a hit.

I ordered my yarn from Angelika's Yarn Store and the service was incredibly fast. Ordered on Friday, yarn in the mailbox Monday. Gotta love it. I'm just kicking myself that I didn't order some of these while I was at it!

Leslie, that sweater in Lorna's Laces will be fantastic! And yes. You shoulda ordered some of those fab needles. In due time...

Yay! Nothing like an excuse to knit a baby sweater. It'll be great in that yarn.
