Another one bites the dust!

Another FO!

Peapod Baby Set

Pattern: Peapod Baby Set by Kate Gilbert (free download from Interweave Press)
Size: 6 months
Yarn: Reynolds Cottontail 50/50 cotton/microfiber 5 skeins
Needles: Knit Picks Options Size 5

Started and finished Jan. 2008.

I really liked this pattern. The yarn made a nice finished product but it was very splitty to use so I probably won't be using it again. The color is actually darker--a nice grassy green!

Now I have this:

Yarn cakes! The periwinkle one is the first skein of Handmaiden double sea silk for my Giselle. The others are the skein of ArtYarns Silk Rhapsody. That stuff was an experience to wind and I ended up having to split it to two balls.

Eye candy:

These are the roses I bought last Sunday! They still look gorgeous!

That's it for today!

Bushism for the day:
"See, without the tax relief package, there would have been a deficit, but there wouldn't have been the commiserate — not 'commiserate' — the kick to our economy that occurred as a result of the tax relief." —George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Dec. 15, 2003

  1. That Pea Pod Baby set turned out just wonderful! It's refreshing to see baby things in something other than pastels.
