There's not much in this world than can raise my spirits quite like a package of yarn in the mail. It came last week, just one skein of malabrigo sock in azules. Yep, that did it. 

I cast on for another sunny side baby cardigan. Are you all sick of me knitting these? Because I'm far from done. I love this pattern for a couple of reasons. 

One, because it uses in many cases just one skein of yarn. That enables this knitter on a shoestring to buy nicer stuff than if I needed several skeins. Two, because it's pretty universally appealing and a star at baby showers. And three because there are always new babies popping up in my circles. One simply cannot knit too many baby sweaters. 

I had thought knitting was making me nauseous but really it was chart reading.   Thankfully after the pattern was established I didn't need it anymore and could just keep on with it. I'm pretty in love. 

What are you working on? 

(Forgive the iPhone posting. Still shaking money trees, hoping for a chrome book soon!)


  1. I'm knitting my first baby sunnyside and it's not going well. LOL. Hopefully once I get the hang of it I'll love it as much as you do.

  2. Gorgeous yarn! And nope - not sick of seeing them at all :-)

  3. That is such a gorgeous color! You are right -- you can never knit too many baby sweaters. (Or, in my case, baby hats.)
