Takin a break...

Well.. I don't know what it is... but I just couldn't stay focused w/the Monkeys... so, I started a baby sweater for friend Mike's baby.. I decided on Knitty's Trellis...I had a hard time deciding on what yarn to use.... I know that wool would probably have looked the nicest.. ... BUT.. I'm a mom too... I just can't bring myself to making a baby item, that can and will be spewed upon at some point, only to have the lil' ones mother having to 'handwash' said item.... I just can't... As much as I would and have appreciated receiving such an item (and I did when mine were that little). They didn't stay in those items for long b/c of the amount of laundering work it would entail...Kimmy was kind enough to lend me her ballwinder(I need to get my own)... Now.. if I could only find the label of the yarn.. that I AM using... :)

King Tut Cotton mayhaps? It looks great. Very impressive! Since I don't have children, I go for form over function. (Except with doggie sweaters, of course) Ah well...

Heh, I don't have a ball winder either. Good idea not to use wool - at least thsi way the baby will actually wear it!
