I am working on an In Threes Cardigan for Millie (size 2) with Cascade Superwash yarn. I am also working on little purple Magic Slippers for her since I had promised to make her slippers in her favorite color. I am adapting a baby booties pattern to a toddler size and it's a pain. Now that I've got it, I think it will be okay but I still haven't been pleased with the bind off. After several attempts, I went with EZ's sewn bind off and it's the best one so I am going with that and will experiment on the next pair further. The slippers are Knit Picks Swish DK and they're really soft. Join us over at Ginny's for more Yarn Along fun!
I usually try to keep my Yarn Along posts separate from my posts with glimpses into our lives, but since we are out of town this week I figured I better just hurry and lump them together since I haven't had much time at the computer.
Before we headed out of town to come, I took the girls to watch a parade in one of the nearby towns. Lots of candy! Our church/youth group had a float in the parade and it was fun to wave at all our friends. Whew, though, it was hot! September had not started to cool down last Saturday so it was almost 80 degrees by the time the parade began in the morning.
