First off the needles this week was my riff on the 5-Hour Baby Sweater. I've done the 5-Hour Baby Sweater in the past and it really does only take about 5 hours. This one? Well, it was a little more like 15 hours. This one is Red Heart Soft Yarn in cream and a lovely mossy green; both colors apparently discontinued.
On the needles currently is that old standby, Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket. This one should be about a six-month size; I'm using random acrylic and a size 7 circular needle. I pulled out three solids (turquoise, blue, and purple) and found a small ball of two different variegated yarns to coordinate. I think I have some blue buttons in my stash; if not, I'll ask ToolMan to make some pretty wooden ones.
I'd nearly run out of stash yarns for the premie hats, when I saw a post on Ravelry that Mokihana was needing yarn donations for her charity knitting group. And the same night, Fantomeq (Ravelry link) delivered a bag of premie hats to me on Wednesday night. I posted on Ravelry that I would take donations on the west side for both Mokihana and me. Little did I know how many donations I was going to get!
