A lot of knitting can be done while watching The Wizard of Oz and Amadeus. With minimal amounts of frogging, Esther Williams:
She's probably 2/3 done! It's snug on my head, so may not work well for the intended recipient...
Here's one from the WIP list that I picked up. The front and back were done, just needed some sleeves:
It didn't take long to figure out why this was in the WIP pile; those colors were HARD to match! I spent a good half hour trying to match up something that didn't clash or mute it or lie limply. In the end, I felt the particular dark blue I chose made the colors pop a bit.
Two sleeves done:
Here's its twin, Strawberry Fields, started (and finished!) about the same time but with a much easier time with colors:
Pattern is from Debbie Bliss' The Baby Knits Book. The body on both is knit with exactly 1 ball of Colinette mezzotint. I had a few balls and no idea what to do with them. On Strawberry Fields, the sleeves are knit with Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride, which made a bit too firm a fabric. Blueberry Fields sleeves are knit with Patons La Laine, knit on needles 2 sizes larger than the recommended size, which makes them very drapey.
No access to a baby so I don't know how they fit, but boy are they cute!
