A WIP and Some Stash

There is something in the water at work. Last year there were 4 women due within a couple of months of each other. This year we have 5 due between December (those 2 are here already) and February. One of the ladies who is due next month is the manager of the other part of the team I work on (she is not my direct manager). She is due with a little boy next month so I am knitting my go to Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater. The yarn is Lion Brand Pound of Love in Turquoise. I am almost finished with the body and would be further along but the yarn became a tangled mess. The shower is on the 26th so I have plenty of time to finish the knitting, buy the buttons and sew them on.

I also managed a bit of stash enhancement last weekend. I received 2 gift cards to Michaels for Christmas and needed to use them. Then I received a 20% off your entire purchase coupon and I really needed to go. So I managed to get all of this and have $11 left over.

From the top left is some Patons Classic Wool to make another Clark-A-Roni hat and 4 skeins of Caron Simply Soft in Black to make this vest. The second row is a ball of Sugar 'n Cream in Faded Denim, 2 skeins each of Caron Simply Soft in Chocolate and Bone to make pillow covers and to start my lace blanket project and another ball of Sugar 'n Cream in Moondance. The bottom row is a size 8 circular to knit my vest and 2 skeins of Sugar and Cream in Terra Firma and Earth Ombre.

Now I need to finish this baby sweater so I can cast on for a new project. Until next time ....

Will like to hear your experience with the Caron Simply Soft. I just used some for a hat and was not thrilled with it. Are you liking it?
