I started a new project on a whim – a gift for my Mom for Mother’s Day. And let me just say that if I happen to finish it in time, I will probably shatter every one of my previous “time to complete project” records.
And Mom? If you happen to be reading this, stop now OK? Because with my luck this would be the one time you come and look at my blog!
Her gift is going to be a Bob sweater from Knitty. Actually, it was going to be a lace scarf that I didn’t finish in time for Christmas but there is no way I can finish it in time for Mother’s Day either. (Because I haven’t even touched it since I decided it wasn’t going to happen in December.) I’m shooting for her birthday in July, but it might make it all the way back around to next Christmas.
Anyway, I am making Bob from some of the new (un-discontinued) Cotton-Ease by Lion Brand yarn and I love it. Very soft and almost spongy-springy. And the new colors are great too; I am using Lime but it was a difficult decision. This is three nights and one ball of yarn worth of progress:
I am actually optimistic that I might finish in time.
