Promised Pictures and New Projects

First, as promised - the lessons learned from my last post in pictures. First, we have the washcloth-lace-study:

Next, we have the two-plus-year-scarf. Note, the older side is on the left - newer on the right.

The scarf was completed in Manos del Uruguay yarn and I adore the color blends in this yarn. Here is a close-up that more accurately reflects the yarn colors:

As soon as I sew the buttons onto Devan, I promise to post a better description of the pattern and materials. For now, I want to share the newest baby sweater project -- the Lace Edge Cardigan from Debbie Bliss SimplyBaby. This one feels like it knits up quickly and I'm already more than half way done. I started this mostly because I was tired of knitting in blue from Devan and tired of knitting on size 1 needles. I'm knitting this cardigan in KnitPicks Shine Sport in Coral on size 2 needles. My stitch gauge is off so I'm knitting the 12-18 month width in the 18-24 month length. And the best thing about this sweater is that the front and back is knit in one piece so I save myself TWO seams!
