but this yarn—I had all the yarn I dyed last time laid out, trying to decide which skein to wind, and I was thinking to myself, "what in the world would I ever make with that pineapple skein?" (although, truthfully, it's not so much pineapple colored as just generally tropical, but I like pineapples, so I call it the pineapple skein.)
and then it hit me—the pineapple skein was destined to become a baby sweater. specifically, the february baby sweater. I bought Knitter's Almanac a few years ago, pretty much solely for the february baby sweater. and then I never knit one, because I never had anyone to knit it for. but once I thought of a pineapple baby sweater, I couldn't get the thought out of my head. the image just stuck. so it happened:
voila! pineapple baby sweater! and yeah, maybe I don't know anyone with a baby, or anyone who's going to have a baby, but someday, someone, will have one, and when that day comes, BOY, WILL I BE READY.
p.s. buttons will come when they come. or when a baby comes.
p.p.s. I'm having some trouble with image color on blogger; does anyone have experience with this issue? for now, please head to ravelry to see the real colors. c:
