First, thank you all so much for all the nice comments on my new cardigan. I've been wearing it pretty much non-stop since I sewed the buttons on. In fact, when getting ready for work this morning I had to force myself to put on a different sweater so people at work wouldn't start to worry about me.
Second, do not feel badly for me because my son doesn't want his sweater. I was almost positive when I set out to make it that he would reject it for some reason or another. That's why I chose free yarn to knit with. I don't have the slightest tinge of regret about how things turned out. I'm very happy to send it to the Dulaan Project. I did pick up some new yarn that I think my son will like. It's a wool blend and it's machine washable. And most importantly, it's bright red. In fact it's the same yarn I knit my devil hat from last year.
My knitting was pretty uneventful this weekend. I've made some progress on my second Canal du Midi sock. Nothing stellar--about half the leg. I knit two Dulaan hats from a skein of Lamb's Pride Bulky that I got at the Ryan's last knit in. I've also nearly finished a baby sweater that I posted on the sidebar but have not otherwise mentioned on the blog. It's the baby kimono from last summer's IK. I started it last Friday after being reminded how cute this sweater pattern is and how little yarn it takes. It was written for Rowan Wool Cotton but Marti made one a while back in Koigu that was terribly cute. There is a baby boy due on Wes's side of the family in February so I grabbed some sock yarn from the stash and got to work.
