What I did on my summer vacation

Finished a baby sweater:

Pattern: The Tulip Baby Cardigan, by Dream in Color
Yarn: KnitPicks Swish Superwash Merino in nine colors
Started: Wednesday, June 20
Finished: Wednesday, June 27
For: First Cousin, once removed due in August (if it's a girl)

I love this pattern and I'm really glad I subbed the yarn. The Swish is so soft and the colors are beautiful. I started another baby sweater for the baby if it's a boy, but I think I'll try this one again with more boyish colors.

Let's see, what else did we do this past week?

Went to the Baltimore Aquarium:

Went to the National Zoo in Washington, DC:

We also visited with friends and I got to go to a few yarn shops. I got enough yarn for a new wallaby for the boy, a cute brown sweater for the girl, a boy baby sweater for the new cousin (if it's a boy) and some souvenir yarn. I love shopping with purpose.

The sweater is just lovely! I like how you used the same color at the end of the sleeves and the bottom of the sweater. Sounds like a great vacation. =-D

OMGoodness, I love those pics of the kids!!! And your sweater, so cute! It's great how you can really pick any color combination you like and it's adorable. I love what you chose! Can't wait to see what yarn you got from your trip!
