Pattern: Knitty's Grrr, by Alice Bell.
Needles: Size 6 bamboo straights and DPNs for the i-cord.
Yarn: Frog Tree Pima Cotton bought at The Yarn Tree, and DMC embroidery thread for the face.
For: Liam Richard, a friend's first child (born last week)!
Time: About a week.
Thoughts: Lots of fun, and quick to knit. I think I'll knit up one for me with the leftover yarn, and a few for holiday gifts...
I did some knitting in public today, on the Baltic socks as I waited (for two hours) to get my car inspected. Two MVC guys asked if I was making them all sweaters. It's a funny little world -- there's doesn't seem to be much else I do that gets such attention in public.
It'll be slow for a few weeks, as I make my move across the country. I've got a week here until the trailer shows up, and then three more days before I head west. I'll keep you posted as I go.
