Ok, ok, you're gonna have to wait for the hot men knitting part. FOs first. Don't worry, we'll get there.
I'm finally finished with knitting all the baby care packages, and not a moment too soon, as they've all been born (like my brand new niece!
! One of the sweaters still needs buttons, but, well, you get the picture.
Without further ado (notes and stuff under the cut, too, because they're lengthy):( Collapse )
And some socks for Ezra's mom:( Collapse )
And a sweater for another babe:( Collapse )
And now, for the hot men knitting portion of our program. Or, rather, hot MAN knitting -- my husband, to be exact. We wanted to just hang out together last night, and I said, "Hey! Wanna learn how to knit?" And he said, "Sure!"
So I sat him down, cast on a row in Simply Soft on size 8s, and showed him the basics. He worked two rows! ( Collapse )
I have to say he got the motions down quickly, but the yarn was not cooperating and kept splitting. When the yarn cooperated, though, he did just fine! He says he's ready to try some more today. I love him.
