Part of the reason for the delay in posting, is that I really haven't made a lot of progress on the baby sweater. I have a few other projects in the works as well, and I worked a bit on two of them as well - but I can't post them right now - the recipient is a follower, and I don't want her to see it until it's in her hands.
Meanwhile, the baby shower was held last Sunday afternoon - minus the sweater. I told the expectant mom that it will be coming, hopefully before the baby arrives.
I'm working on the cabled fronts - have a look:
I'm about halfway done at this point. Then I'll have to add the button bands, and knit the hood.
Another thing that kept me from knitting was making a few cards. My stash has dwindled to almost nothing, and I hate having to make a card just a few minutes before it has to go into the mail. It's so much nicer to pick one out of an overflowing box!
A friend's husband had surgery last week, and I wanted them to know that we're thinking of them, and keeping them in our prayers, so the first card is on it's way to them; the second card is without a sentiment right now - it could be for a birthday, or a "Thinking of You" kind of card - whatever is called for at the time. It will only take a minute or two to add something then.
I'll wrap up the month of January with a post tomorrow - I finished my blue tulip blocks for January, and I have my Quilty 365 blocks done for the week - I'll probably post a pic of all the blocks for January!
I'm going to link up on Judy's On the Needles page.
