Not much to see here. I’ve been working diligently on the baby knitting, which is quite satisfying because small. Last night’s overdose of Vincent Price classics (via iTunes rentals — so dangerous), provided much knitting time. And an excellent excuse to break out the sherry.

I’ll provide the project details when everything is finished up. Not that they’re very interesting — I just followed the pattern and voilà: a baby sweater.

Well, baby socks and daydreaming about a certain project for which I just bought some yarn. Some lovely, tweedy yarn. Mmmmm.
Any guesses what this wants to be when it grows up?
