on the needles

i've just started knitting my first sweater. it's not the modular tomten by EZ that i talked about in this post but it is a Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern. it's the bog jacket from her book "knitting around." i'm making it for my 3 month old daughter out of leftover yarn from my sister's christmas mittens and some latte coloured yarn from my stash. i thought it would be good practice for the tomten i'm going to make for my ds and i had the stuff to whip it up. so far so good although it's a bit like knitting a giant scarf but i just keep telling myself the finished product will be so much more rewarding. sorry no pics yet but check back soon.
