The felted matryoshkas that I made Màiri several years ago are suddenly a great favorite again. We’ve been felting every day, usually while dinner cooks. They keep asking to do a bit more and I don’t see any reason not to. The booties are the “Pom-Pom Booties” from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies, made with the leftover yarn from Steve’s hat. They are so tiny that the pom-poms are almost as big as the feet!
I finished Galen’s birthday sweater and am glad to be able to devote all of my knitting time to baby things. Though I have to admit, over the last couple of days my head has been turned by the idea of making a new cardigan for myself. Something very basic and very wearable. The Annabel Cardigan comes to mind. And look, I could make one for the baby too! But I do not have yarn for such an undertaking and I have plenty of other things to be working on, so it’s more a daydream then anything else.
