Trellis Finished

I finally finished Trellis for my new born nephew-

Pattern: Trellis from Knitty
Design: Britta Stolfus Rueschhoff
Yarn: 4 balls of Rowan All Season Cotton (Shade: 212)
Size: for 6 months

I love this cardigan! I have made some sweaters/cardigans for babies, but this could be my favorite! I love this so much that I may try to make it a lot bigger for my son some day...
Rowan All Season Cotton was very pleasant to work with. I really really love this color.
Now with less than a week to go till christmas, I have to start knitting my son's sweater.. I don't know if I can finish it though...

My sister had a baby boy this week! I am so glad everything went well. I wish I could see him in person, but since he is in Japan, I am not able to see him for a while, so I decided to make a Trellis cardigan for him to celebrate his birth.

I got Rowan's All Season Cotton in Chocolate brown color. It looks so yummy! I really love this color. I may get more for some other project...

Speaking of color, I also ordered RYC Cashsoft. I thought I ordered some kind of gray-bluish color, but what I got was a bit golden, yellow green, sage color. Oh, no... Sometimes the color looks awfully different on the screen... I am now wondering if I should go ahead with these color, or I should reorder the yarn again, which is very costly... (I can't return these yarns, since I ordered from England, it may cost more to ship them back.) My another bad luck is that my contact lens (gas permeable -- hard lens) broke in pieces in my eye! ! My son's friends came over the other day, and they started to throw blocks, and one of them accidentally smashed my eye... so, I am having a tough time right now. Hopefully I will get the new contact lens soon...
