WIP Wednesday

The past few weeks have been grim for our little family, but I won't talk about it. Lets just say that we are trying to get back to normal-- or whatever passes for normal around here. Its been a very cold and snowy winter, and I think knitting for once has not helped me stay sane. Still, it keeps me busy, because long walks just aren't an option right now.

Some of my friends are expecting babies this spring and I'm making a cardigan for each baby. I've started on the one that's due first, in April, and its a girl, so I'm doing another Coffee Bean cardigan in pink and grey. I know babies are supposed to be swaddled in pastels but I'm sure they'll be given pastels enough by their families and friends. I wanted to be a bit different.

I'm making very slow progress on this. Because its for a wee little one, I don't want to work on it when I'm sad. Only positive thoughts go into every stitch.

Using easy care acrylic so that the new (probably overwhelmed mommy) doesn't have to bother about washing-- it can be tossed into the washer and dryer.

  1. Its so beautiful Medha,You are extremely talented.
    I don't know how to hold the needles(i guess it is called as needles right). Could you organize a Class for knitting?
    I can be your student.

    1. Hey its Nupur...I know my email id can be confusing

    2. Oh hey Nupur- yeah Nimi told me you wanted to learn, sure I can teach you. When are you flying to India?

  2. Such a sweet sweater. While pastels do seem to be the obvious choice for babies I am a big fan of brighter colours myself

  3. Sending positive thoughts your way. Keep plugging along until things get better. Love the cardi! It will be well received.

  4. hope that you feel better and find peace soon! The cardigan is looking great!
