Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another great book, but I've spoiled myself by reading the daily blog, so these longer chapters took too much time from my knitting

Another Success....Mostly

I finished another baby surprise sweater, and this one came out almost perfect. There are a few loose stitches on the sleeve where my cast on was not as neat as it should have been, but overall, I'm pleased. The hat I made to go with it, however, I'm not as happy about. It's another Elizabeth Zimmerman, a pillbox hat, but each time I make it I play around with the brim a little, and this one didn't please me. I couldn't really decide what to do to fix it, so it went into the gift bag anyway. I finished the project with a real simple pair of garter stitch booties, and the new mommy seemed really pleased. I only have one more to make this month.
