I got my order from Knitpicks yesterday and wasted no time getting to work.

Instead of knitting an actual gauge swatch, I went ahead and cast on for the number of stitches needed — it’s a baby sweater, after all — and figured if I wasn’t getting gauge, it wouldn’t be a big deal to tink it and try again. Unfortunately, I’m not getting gauge, and my #9s are attached to another project at the moment. I’ll have to free them, I suppose.

I had to try some other yarn, too, so here’s Alpaca Cloud in Iris. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it yet.

And, in the better late than never department, the socks (my first pair!) I finished, like, two months ago for my husband.
