We are leaving for our annual trip to the in-laws this week. My in-laws are amazing people. They're smart, funny and fun and they love my kids more than anything. My husband and I get a lot of alone time when we're at their house. "Hey, you guys should go see a movie/ go to a restaurant/ bowling/ and we'll watch the kids". Um, okay bye.
I also knit a lot there. I feel like I can actually sit and not feel guilty that I'm not playing with or paying attention to them (the kids) because the in-laws are monopolizing their time (so not complaining). Last year I knit the Angel Baby sweater in a couple of days because I had so much time. I knit the majority of it in the car on the way down (9 hours of knit time yay!) I was going to knit the Tulips Baby Cardigan on the way down there, but it's so fast I'm almost done. I just need to knit the sleeves and edging. This sweater is like a box of Cheeze-Its, I'm powerless to stop. My gauge is off since I'm subbing Knitpicks Swish, but I think it'll work better for a three-month old size (the pattern is 6-9 month). Here is the back:
So now I need to find something fast to knit in the car. I am planning a mini yarn crawl in the DC/MD/VA area, so I have something for the way back.
Socks are always good, right?
