A gentle post with some pops of green from our balcony garden, and some knitting news. Of course we are deep in radishes by now. :) Spinach has sprouted and parsley is poking its head out too. Just waiting for the mint to come. I am nervous about mint. It's my first time growing it from seed. I try not to check on it all the time so I won't be disappointed at each glance. Gardens can be nail-biters sometimes!
This is the first baby sweater update. As you can see, there's still a ways to go. No worries. I have nothing but time. I've been itching to knit something in this gray, but I'm wondering if it's more masculine than neutral? I guess I can always add pink trim if it comes down to that. Or really girlie buttons. Also, I can't decide whether I prefer knitting or crocheting. This from someone who just started knitting seriously. It's a very nice conundrum to find oneself in. Yarn, I've missed you.
PS - There's something so right about knitting for baby. Despite the summer heat, it just feels good. (Thank God for cool breezes and AC...)
Yay for bits of green and baby knitting :) I am baby knitting too, but not for me, for a friend. Enjoy both your garden and your knitting.ReplyDelete
Such a nice thing to give someone - a handmade baby knit. :)Delete
Pink (or even white) would look wonderful, I bet. But I don't think it necessarily looks masculine. I think gray is a wonderful, soft neutral. Beautiful work.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Becki. I really did love the colour when I saw it, so no regrets there. And maybe paired with pink leggings it will work out without any embellishments. Thanks for the idea with white though. While looks beautiful with this gray. :)Delete
The gray is gorgeous, maybe you could add a pretty button or two to make it more girly if you wanted - I like it as it is!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lucy. I agree. A button would probably do the trick. :) It's nice to think there are such pretty options open!Delete
Love that gray...one of my favorite colorsReplyDelete
Yes, I totally agree Alyssa. It's been begging for me to use it for a while now. So glad to oblige!Delete
