Happy Birthday Vince!

Today is my little brother Vincent's birthday. He's 24 years old today and I'm hoping that his day is very happy! He wrote a really great post about my family on his blog this week, check it out to see what the rest of my clan was up to last weekend.

I wrapped up a couple lingering projects on the drive to and from Kitchener last weekend. The first finished project had been sitting unfinished in my knitting basket for, oh only about 2 1/2 years! I had one sock and most of the leg of the second sock done. I tried the finished sock on before I left and noticed that it was super comfortable and vowed to finish it's twin. And I did!

I also finished my second Vespergyle mitten, the pair will make a great gift for one of the guys in my life this Christmas.

My Kureyon Sock yarn cardigan is still hanging out in the basket... I will finish it soon, it's just missing sleeves and some finishing, but I've got a more pressing project on the needles right now.

I'm making a cardigan for my goddaughter Abby. Abby's godfather is my cousin Sean. Sean is getting married this October, and then I'm getting married next June, and of course Abby will be the flower girl at both occasions, and she needs a pretty little cream cardigan to wear in case it gets chilly. I'm knitting the Playful Stripes Cardigan, ironically without the playful stripes part... I'm knitting it in Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo. It's a really lovely, soft, slightly shiny yarn. And because I can't get enough of the sparkles these days I'm jazzing it up with some sparkles over the garter stitch portions. The picot edge is a really nice detail too. Simple and classy. Abby will look great!
