They still look new because they are. I haven't worn them yet, although I even have a red shoulder bag to complete the look and have attended two knitting events.I didn't think to wear them! Oh well, any day now.
My baby shower knitting has been nonexistent for days now. I'm not sure I'm crazy about the Bernat Cottontots. Although I've been careful with it, working with a lap protector, the beginning is starting to look worn, which makes me wonder how it will wash and hold up for a baby. I now wish I had ordered Sugar 'n Creme weeks ago. I knew I wasn't satisfied and a week ago I did the next best thing, ordered a great gift from the baby register. Now any knitted thing I give, whether meeting my high standards or not, will just be icing on the baby shower cake.
Last night I was looking for a recent Knit Picks catalog to see what yarn they might have suitable for baby things. I couldn't find the latest (because it was right next to me! forest/trees syndrome) and the old ones I looked through left me clueless. Today I received the new Knit Picks catalog and guess what is featured. Yep, you guessed it, BABY THINGS!!! Is that a sign or what? This catalog was written for me! The two biggest spreads are on baby things and socks. Can you believe it?!!!
I will complete the kimono in Bernat Cottontots and make my final determination on the yarn then. My decluttering instructions do not allow me to bring anything else in the house until something leaves so Peaches & Creme can not come here . . . yet. I have four pairs of knitted socks almost out the door.
