Catching Up on the Knitting Train

In some ways, I still feel like I'm catching up from the weekend, but if there's one thing that recovering from a day in ER is good for, it's getting knitting done! Check out Finn up there-the body is practically done. I have a few more rows of garter stitch, and boy, is it nice to be knitting something other than stockinette on that thing.

The second part of the Recharge KAL pattern went out this weekend, but I still have almost half of the first section left. This is a real casual KAL though, and it's been great lunch knitting, so I'm not too worried about staying too far behind. That is, I wouldn't be too worried, if I didn't have another shawl KAL starting this week.

Allyson Dykhuizen's Windy City MKAL starts tomorrow, and I'm super excited! I'm using these two skeins that my friend Daria dyed-if they look familiar, that's because I picked them up at my knitting retreat in April. I'm super excited to have a plan for these skeins, and I'm really looking forward to knitting along with Allyson.

Finally, (not really, I have like 40 more WIPs stashed around), one of my cousins is in the family way, and I'll be getting a new little baby cousin in a few months! So of course, I need to knit the little dude a sweater. I had this perfect ball of Opal in my stash, and I'm making the Garter Stitch Baby Kimono and it's just too cute to handle so far.
