A First Sign Of Fall
And a WIP update on the Everyday Cardigan. I have the back done, the right front and 3/4 of the front left side. After dropping out of the Mystery Stole KAL, it's rather soothing and comforting to knit something so simple. I had been working on baby items with the Cashsoft dk so this Peace Fleece yarn felt rough at first but I love the fabric it makes.
At work we're having a baby shower for a colleague. She is fortunate to have both a large family and large circle of friends so she has already received most of the items on her baby gift registry. At lunch one day she mentioned that she'd like to start a library for her baby to nurture a love of reading and voila! a shower idea was born. Our theme is "Read Me a Story" and we've asked people to bring in their (or their children's) favorite book from childhood.
I had finished the sweater before the theme had been decided and needed buttons. I didn't have time to run to a speciality store so I went to my local Joann's and found some Peter Rabbit Buttons
I stopped by our town's local indie bookseller and bought the baby "The Complete Adventures of Peter Rabbit"
and knit a little baby bunny hat:
Hat pattern: Bunny Tail from "Itty Bitty Hats"
Yarn: Rowan Cashsoft dk
Needles: Addi Turbo, size 7, 16" circular and Brittany Birch size 7 dpns
Knitting Time: One evening

Change one word and and her quote rings true with me:

Now run along, and don't get into mischief!"-Mrs. Rabbit
