Babies and spinning
You'll be seeing a fair number of baby jumpers on the blog in the next few months - five people at my work are pregnant. One of the baby jumpers I wanted to knit is the Snug, but I didn't have any suitable twelve ply yarn. I did have the lovely dark grey four ply that I made my Laika out of.
I ran three strands of it through the wheel, and I'm really happy with the result.
I really haven't done any spinning for the last six months. I don't think this has returned my spinning mojo, but it is nice to know I can utilise this skill in a useful way, and I've found myself tootling away on the spindle a couple of times since I finished this, so who knows, maybe the love will return.
Do you have a "go to" baby pattern you like to use? If so, let me know in the comments, because I've got two more to go, and that's after I actually knit Snug.
