Official Baby Present
June 24, 2010
Of the Calgary Knit Club.
The Norweigan baby hat, knit from some killer sock yarn from Fleece Artist. I love this colourway for baby things, I only wish I had bought all they had at the Knitting Room at the time. We finally got to try our hats (a few of us have knit more than 3 now!) on a real baby last night. This hat, made from the middle stitch count on the pattern, may even fit the baby next winter. Its so wonderful to have a real cute little cuddly baby to try our knitted items on. I plan on asking the mother to measure his feet next for optimum baby sock design.
At home I’ m reading “How to Knit a Love Song“, and really enjoying it. Its a perfect summer romance novel, to put your feet up and escape into a lovely world of fantasy. Its a love story, and has all the elements of the romance novel, but its more, with one scene that all knitters will find beyond exciting. Beyond. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but think of a big knitting fantasy, its in the book! I find the prose to be delightful, sparkly, and fast moving. Unfortunately I had to buy it from Amazon, as I couldn’t find it here in Canada. If I ran a knitting store, I’d be sure to stock a few copies of this book! Hint. Hint.
