I know, it's been forever, again, since I last posted.

This time though, I've actually been doing quite a bit of knitting!

Yesterday, I seamed the hood of my Viking Cable Hoodie. All that's left for me to do is pick up 300 some odd stitches along the fronts, and rib for 2 1/2". Then, I'll bring it to my mom and she'll sew in the second sleeve and add a zipper. This sweater will definitely be ready to go for Rhinebeck. I just may not see it completed until I get to the motel.

I finished the Welldigger hat.

I knit this from Harrisville Designs Yarn that I bought in Vermont last spring. There's something wonky in the top third of the hat (you can see the line in the photo). By the time I noticed it, I was almost done, so I'm just leaving it alone. I think I worked an extra row in the pattern. It's not my favorite hat, but it's not my least favorite either. We'll see how much wear it gets next winter I guess.

I've also been working on a baby gift: a cardigan and legwarmers. The patterns are from 60 Quick Baby Knits and knit from Cascade 220 Superwash. I think they're both cute, and hope they will be well-received by the mom-to-be. I still have a matching hat to do, and I cast on for that while walking the kids to school this morning.

Here are the FOs:

(Yes, the ribbing is slightly longer on one of the leg warmers. I'll be fixing that tonight.)

I'm eager to get to some lace knitting, but I really need to find a couple of more "walk and knit" projects to get me through the summer. Saturday, I'm heading to the NH Sheep and Wool Festival, so perhaps a skein or two of sock yarn is in my future).

How is your knitting coming along?
