I do not wish to use handspun, since the recipient mother will probably not want to bother with handwashing, so it must be tough. I've considered the EZ Baby Surprise Sweater, but I don't want to knit anything in fingering weight yarn that might not be cherished forever, since what I REALLY want to do (and need to do) is finish up the winter accessory sets for my children. So it's got to be cute and fast. If I can find it in my stash, that's an added bonus, but I live down the street from a yarn shop, so that's not too much of a concern.
So....can you rescue me with that One Great Idea?
Here's some eye candy of the Spunky Club fiber I got yesterday:
8 oz handpainted Finn combed top, colorway "Acadia"
I love the way it goes to blue at one end, and I intend to use this as a design feature in whatever this ends up being.
Daisy adopted it, and did not wish to give it up, but when she started drafting out little bits of it, I had no choice. There were tears.
