Happy Easter!

On Saturday morning I finished the first Twin sweater:

Dream in Color Classy in 'Beach Fog' (not yet blocked). And started the second:

Since the babies are fraternal twins, I chose a different but complimentary color, 'Some Summer Sky". I love knitting with this yarn. The colors are so happy and the yarn is soft.

I happen to have all the colors of Dream in Color in my stash to make the Tulip Baby cardigan but lately the pregnant mothers I've been knitting baby gifts for either don't want to know the baby's sex or, in the one case where she did find out, is having twin boys.

Later that afternoon, I watched a recording of "Madame Butterfly" off my DVR and I got pretty far with sweater 2:

Can I point out how much I love Jelby's stitch markers--they're just too cute:

I'll have enough yarn to make a baby cap for each one too. Since the sweaters so simple, I'm thinking of the Simple Baby Cap 2 from Itty Bitty Hats since it also has a rolled edge.

Happy Easter everyone!

This is the first Easter where we haven't stocked up on our See's candy! Now you make me want to stop by there tomorrow :) Yummy!

The baby sweaters are turning out perfectly! Great job!

The baby sweaters are darling - I like that you are making them in two shades of blue, instead of the same.

And those stitch-markers are the cuteness :-0

Have a very pleasant Easter ;-)

I love the sweaters' colors. But I'm a little freaked out at the idea of a green beach fog.
