It's the Baby Bolero from One Skein - okay so Wendy knitted the jacket and I only did the edging - BUT I KNIT ON IT! Lol. It's going to my cousin who just had alittle girl on Saturday night - emergency c-section. Paloma Jean. Enought said. I'm working on another little jacket to go with this one, but it's not ready to be pictured yet.
Worked a split double yesterday - and am still very tired. I think I'll do some dyeing and hang around the house today. I'm working on some pretty solid colors - I'm kind of tired of multi colors and find myself knitting with alot more solids. Or one color solid for the body and a completely different color for heel and toe. Like my Easter socks - I'll post them next time! I was thinking about kits for my Etsy shop with contrast heel and toe. I usually don't like toe and heel to match - I like that jarrrrrr of color to shake things up! Ummm maybe I'll work on that today!

You ever have things turn out not like you were expecting? Maybe when cooking? My grandma made great pancakes for us kids one time - we loved them and she was really embarrassed - she forgot the baking soda - rubber pancakes that all us kids LOVED! The yarn I dyed today was like that - NOT WHAT I EXPECTED! The bamboo came out well - you decide - I think HORRID! But what do I know, people love all kinds of things I don't.
But I did a skein of Suri alpacca and BFL that I love so much I may not give it up if it sells! But wasn't what I was trying to get either!
