Impatience 2

Pin It
So, I couldn't do it. Finish the sweater before starting on the baby blanket. Big brother's sweater was transferred to a set of 3mm needles (which very seldom are in use as they are awful) and put on hold, and mommy happily cast on for the baby blanket on the 2,5mm needles.

Have just started on the colorwork, and am increasingly worried that the combination of colors will turn out too dark. I was hoping for the pink and the purple to be a bit brighter, and I feel that the grey is very brownish.

Well, I will have to knit a bit more to really see how it will turn out.

Dang, have just received a package of Blackhill Højlandsgarn from The yarn is to be used for a Latvian Garden blanket from Pinneguri for the soon-to-arrive little sister. And I so want to cast on straight away. Partly, because I only have about 2 months to get the blanket done, and last time I knit it, for cute nephew, I think I spent at least double that amount if time, and partly to try out the yarn, as this is the very first time I have bought it. But, and here is the dilemma, I only have one set of needles in 2,5mm, and those are already in use. I am currently knitting a new sweater to soon-to-be big brother using those needles. Now, I could put the sweater on scrap yarn and use the needles for the blanket but knowing myself that would mean taking the chance of the sweater never being finished. So, there really is only one solution, which is to at least finish the body of the sweater.
