Not a fan of sewing.....


I'm just not a fan of sewing sweaters, so I don't make very many of them. I'm also a bit to lazy to really dig into some of the cool no sewing techique books that I have. But I wanted to make a sweater for Jada. But not invest a lot of time. I chose the Baby Bolero from the One Skein book, but alas. Sewing :(

However, having read some of the no sewing books, I decided to use some of techniques. Like 3 needle bind-off on the shoulders and picking up and knitting the sleeves.

It works. It's still in progress, but it is shaping up and it is a very, very quick knit. This is after 1 day of knitting with a new born. Which means lots of feeding and holding, very little knitting :) But that's all good, the knitting will wait. Little Jada is only going to be 3 weeks old once!

This is of course in between picking up my other WIPs every once in while...
