Raglan Along

Dearest N,

It's Sunday night again and I'm sad to have to go back to work. The weather here was so lovely and there really wasn't much to do at home except go for walks along the creek, watch funny movies, make nice dinners, and of course, knit. Lots of knitting was done this weekend. I started this little purple top down raglan hoodie on Saturday and have the yoke mostly finished.
And yes, that's Vanna White on the yarn label. It's her new line from Lion Brand. The hoodie is for my eldest neice in Vancouver who's favourite colour is purple. I adapted it from this pattern to make it fit a four year old. I'll send you the details if you're interested in knitting one for B. Did I tell you that I love, no LOVE, these raglan sweater patterns? They knit up so fast and there's barely any seaming to do once you're done. It's really cool watching it take form as you knit it.

Next is the felted ballet slipper for one of my sisters (haven't decided which one yet). I have one knitted up and you can see that I have yet to weave in the waste yarn.
I think it'll be cuter than the felted clogs. The ballet slippers are also a Bev Gellaskas pattern but from this book that I borrowed from the library. The yarn is Cascade 220 in colour 9424.

I'm off to knit the last couple of rows of the purple hoodie before dividing for the sleeves and body. I will try to enjoy the last bit of weekend left before Monday rolls around again. Hope you had as knit-ful a weekend as I!
