So, one down, two nearly finished, third cast on...

One baby sweater is finished.

Two are in seaming stages. The stockinette BSJ is, well, not perfect, but close enough. I think with blocking, it'll be alright. The other needs some blocking, since I think I got the sleeves in not quite the right spot, and the back is a wee bit longer than the front.

So far, all of these knits have been plagued, which is leading me to think that perhaps for E's baby, a blanket out of the beautiful lavender Kertzer cotton I bought on Saturday may be a better plan than trying to design my own car seat bunting. As awesome a gift as that would be, it'll only be awesome if I can finish it, and I'm feeling a little cowed and under the gun here. I can always use the purple wool to make a lovely sweater for Ms. Widget this winter.

In other news, I got my Ravelry invite about a week ago, and I'm having a blast playing over there. ETA: I'm foolish, and forgot to add that my username over there is siercia.

In other other news, I signed up for the Mystery Stole Along on yahoo. As neat as this seems, I'm starting to think that taking on another project while I'm still on deadline for baby knitting might be a mistake. The volume of messages on the group is seriously overwhelming as well. I suppose it doesn't hurt to stay signed up nd decide closer to the start date, right?
