First off, the festive St. Patrick's Day pen was hard at work this morning!

My hands have been hard a work
with knitting as well. I've finished one of the Simply Lovely Lace Socks and I have my lovely model Paisley to show them off!
The Baby Kimono from Interweave Knits is just creamin' along. I'll be finished it tomorrow at some point. I'm actually in a mad rush to get it done now because I just found out yesterday that my aunt is having a baby shower for my cousin next weekend (she's due via c-section April 10th). I was going to start one of the adorable little girl sweater patterns that I really
want to do but they don't know the sex yet and there's no way I'd have time to finish it either. The kimono seemed pretty generic and still cute. I'm also going to whip up a pair of booties or socks to put with it. We are going up to Owen Sound this weekend to visit my family, so I think I'm going to go over there and personally deliver the gift myself since I won't be able to make it to the shower.
I guess my second sock will be on hold until I get this baby gift out of the way with, but luckily this sweaters knitting up quick. It seemed to take forever to get to the part where you divide for your fronts and back, good old knit stitch!! This sweaters proving to be a great "quick gift" project but very boring!

Well, I better be going now, my dear daughter some how got hold of a pen and is giving herself pen tatoos all over.

Looks like we better make that girl some socks too. Maybe she would be satisfied with "red dancing socks!"

Your sock turned out beautifully. :) One of these days I will cast on for a sock ...

The baby sweater looks great. What a cute pattern.

your kimon looks really nice. Is the pattern pretty simple?

It's really simple and done in one piece, as long as you don't get bored with the garter stitch!
