Baby got Back...

As Fricknits and the Knitting Philistine both so astutely pointed out, I am not in fact suffering from baby-itis. Rather I am currently undergoing Baby-knittingitis. It's totally different and requires much less commitment!

I cast on for this sweater on Saturday night and have finished the back. It is flying off the needles, and I have even been working on the interminable stockinette of the Green Gable body as well as the Retro-Rib socks thrown in for good measure. So, if you're in the market for a satisfying knitting experience, look to the junior set for some instant gratification...

Also my pal Wondermike finally has a knitblog! Show him some special love and welcome him to our wacky world over at Socktopus...

Wow! That's looking good!
I agree about the baby knits, it's the speedy finishing that makes them so very tempting, well, that and the irresistable babies in the photos!
Happy knitting,
ali

Adorable! Good project to break up that Green Gable stockinette.

When I turned 40 it was "now or never" time for that 3rd child...and I got a chihuahua instead. Much lower maintenance, and the sweaters are almost as cute. But OMG - your sweater is gorgeous. Great job.

Tell me about it! I love the baby knitting. It goes so much faster. But, anyway, the back looks gorgeous. Great cable work and I just love the color.

Karen said...

Love the cabley goodness!!!! And hurray for quick little sweaters - baby knitting rocks.

My Green Gable is my absolute favorite for-myself knit, ever. Can't wait to see it. As for the baby sweater, I feel Knitty's Trellis calling me as I see yours!

I LOVE this. So beautiful. My sister is pregnant now, and this could be a nice project for a girl or a boy.

I think the sweater is the effin' bizomb. I can't wait to see the FO.

What a darling sweater! I've been looking for something cute to knit for a friend's new baby boy.

Now if I can get through these damn socks I'm knitting...

That looks awesome! My Green Gable is still in Cast On mode. I haven't done much with it, but I think I need to make some time for it.

Oh my gosh!!! The sweater is turning out so darn cute... Makes me want to have another baby, which would require a miracle and another uterus!

Kirsten said...

So Cute!!! I must find more babies to knit for!!

Your baby-knittingitis is paying off... just look at you go on that sweater! And I absolutely love a baby in green (poo on those old fashioned blues and pinks...)!

I can't believe how quick you've knitted up the back. I bet you're already finished with the sweater! It's pretty--perfect spring green color, too.

Melissa said...

OMG!! I love it! The color, the pattern, it's so gorgeous!!

Dipsy said...

My gosh, this sweater is going to look so great! I'm totally impressed by your beautiful and even cabling, and the colour rocks big time too! It's gorgeous indeed!
