purple

Awash in a sea of purple.

One of these days I'll learn to not size a pattern solely by the bust measurement.
The pattern, lion-neck cardigan from Custom Knits, was nice. I got spot-on gauge with the knitpicks suri dream,in blackberry. The errors were all mine.

(You're looking at the hair, right? yeah, it's pretty bad. The smells of the beauty salon have been giving me an instant headache, so I haven't been able to get past the door in the past three months.)
Oh well, I'm sure the cardigan will fit someone.

Baby blanket is done. It's not photographing well, but you get the idea.

So, what to knit next. Right now I'm working on a baby sweater.
Everyone's asking about the name now that we know we're having a boy. Honestly, we haven't even discussed names yet, and probably will not reveal it when we do. In the meantime, we're telling everyone the baby's name is "Virgil".

Anyway, the start of the sweater.

Using the MST3K chart from goingcrafty .(via ravelry)
I'm using Silky Wool, and have yet to decide if this will be the front of a pullover, or the back of a cardigan.

"But, Erin, what about all those socks you started last fall?"
-I have no recollection of these so called sock projects in question. But maybe I'll pick them back up this spring, especially if I get put on bed rest, which I'm seriously hoping to avoid.

Update on Step-dad. They've amputated his leg. He used to say, since the first amputation about 5 years ago, that he was six foot, one inch on the right side, and five foot, seven inches on the left. Now he's symmetrical, but this time, the humor is gone. The surgery went well, and he's doing as well as can be expected.
