This little sweater is for my friend C's baby, who I cannot wait to meet. It is also named after C, in a play on words sort of way. I may make a little hat or a pair of mittens to go with it, I haven't quite decided yet. We'll see how the rest of my on-the-needles inventory gets worked on and worked though in the next couple of months. Is it really Fall already? Who can believe this? Here's a shot of the back of the sweater.
I enjoyed knitting this sweater quite a lot, even though (or because?) it went so fast I almost didn't have time to blink, and also because I thought about C and imagined what her first baby girl will be like as I knitted. She will be very cute and fashion savvy, no doubt, like her mommy. I only wish they still lived in L.A. and not the BK. But ah, that's what planes are for. :) Don't you just want to pet this?
Besides my little photo shoot, we had a pretty mellow weekend, for the first time in several weeks. We've been much more social in the last few weekends than we're used to, so I was glad to be home for a change. Besides lunch with a friend on Saturday, we stayed around the house, careful to not exert too much energy. I think even Dakota was relieved to be home this weekend.
PS: No sooner did I come across a couple of potentially scrumptious fig recipes, when I discovered (MUCH to my dismay) that the figs seems to have all but disappeared from my tree! Okay, there are a few that I might be able to save, but it's not lookin' good. Wouldn't you know it? Grr...
