This is a little hooded sweater that our daughter thought looked cute and non gender specific. She and her husband also like this shade of green, so I thought it would be fun to knit it up. I cannot believe how fast it is coming together! The fronts, back, and sleeves are all knit separately and then joined on one circular needle in order to knit the yoke and hood. I just started this a week ago, and I'm already up to the hood! The yarn that I am using is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, and it is a joy to work with: so soft and gentle on the fingers, so I know the baby will love it too!
Here's how the sweater will look when it is completed:
We spent two nights in the city, enjoying the beautiful days and cooler temps. The Eagles gave a 'Green Concert' at Piedmont Park on Friday night, and we could hear the music from our condo. It was a great night to have windows and doors open, and I know the concert goers enjoyed their evening on the lawn at the park. We had a fantastic dinner at ECCO, one of our favorite Midtown restaurants. On Saturday, we shopped around and then saw "The Social Network" at Midtown Art. We both liked it very much and found it true to the book, which we had listened to, courtesy of Audible, a couple of years ago. We stopped by our favorite Chipotle for lunch on our way home yesterday, and I was amused by their new napkins:
Chipotle has the best graphics and writing on their paper goods!
