Here is the project I am working diligently on to finish up for DH:
It is the Baseball Sweater on the front cover of Knits Men Want. This is a fantastic book that I picked up last year (TONS of gauge and size options for every project in the book). When Patrick first picked out the sweater, I knitted the back. Then, I got distracted. Now that I am back on the case, I have the back and 75% of the front done. I hope to have the front and part of the sleeves done this week so that I can finish up the sleeves and seaming next week. The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash on a US 6 needle. I am knitting the 44 inch size as instructed except that I am increasing the length in the torso and arms to fit Patrick's frame. My gauge is actually between the 5 and 5.5, but I really needed a 42 so it should all work out. Of course, my Rays loving hubby, picked out two shades of blue for his Baseball sweater. I can't wait to see him wear it this winter as I think it will really bring out his eyes. : )
I do find myself longing for a blanket project. Most people are a certain type of knitter or crocheter. Most people will answer with, "I'm a sweater knitter," or "I'm a hat knitter." Me, well, I'm odd. I love to make sweaters and adore making hats. But, I think I must admit that I love making blankets. Blankets were one of the first things I crocheted and knitted and I still love to make them. I just might have to dive into another crocheted block blanket.
