The knitting store on 3rd Street had a sale recently so I grabbed a bundle of nice, soft yarns. I usually get non-wool yarns but I'm trying some merino wool. Chris says it's different enough from normal wool (which makes me itchy) that it will probably be fine.
First project is a hat for Jack; then a hat and bootie socks for the baby, and a new hat for Alex.
I'm really liking the hat for Jack so far. I'm doing a loop stitch, which is very simple but knits up nicely. I got the stitch directions from some magical books of Chris's that have photos of each pattern so you can really tell what they look like. I'd love to post pictures and will as soon as our camera's new memory stick arrives!
