I finished knitting this back at the beginning of the month but it took me a while to block it and decide on a closure. It's the Matinee Coat from Debbie Bliss' Simply Baby in yarn I picked up at Madrona. Tactile Fiber Arts Superwash Sportweight Merino Sock Yarn in the color Wisteria. Pretty pretty. It took about 1 & 2/3 balls for the 6-9 month size. The way Audrey is growing she'll be in it lickety split. I like the way the color worked up - a little bit of pooling but nothing really crazy. The lace section at the bottom is especially pretty. I've been knitting regularly for 2+ hours a night since the little one goes to bed between 730 and 8. I just have to remember to go to bed as well or I stay up waaay too late and am cranky and groggy when she wakes up in the morning. Bad mommy! But it's really nice to have that crafty time again. Hooray!
