While I have been doing quite a bit of stitching lately, I've been trying not to forget that I have a baby gift to finish for August 2nd. With this being the end of June, that means I've got about a month to get it finished. Here is my progress to date:
I'm almost to the point where I will be casting off for the arm hole stitches on the other side of the sweater. From there it will be a little bit more of the honeycomb stitch and then time to start the decreases for the other tie and figure out how to do the sleeves.
Here is a close up of the honeycomb stitch which is made using alternating knit and slip stitches on the wrong side and then knitting all stitches on the front. I really like how it looks. I hope the mama does too!
I'm off to do a bit more on this project while I wait for company to arrive for the weekend. The temperature has heated back up so I think there will be some beach time in my weekend plans. Hope you're enjoying great weather too!
