Those are four different colorways of fabulous Ella Rae lace merino, which I'll be using to make socks all summer long. I love seeing them all lined up like that. Also, can you tell I like pink and purple and blue? That green skein looks a bit out of place...
In other knitting news, on Monday night I finished a baby sweater for a little one who will be arriving in just a few short weeks. This is the Helena Baby Sweater (Rav link), a free Knitty pattern, in two shades of fairly soft acrylic from Michaels. It was a really fast knit with a simple but pretty lace pattern, and I am a huge fan of the picot hem. I made the smallest size on larger-than-called for needles, but the pattern makes allowances for a pretty big range of sizes, so you could make one for a newborn or a toddler. Hooray for all these adaptable baby patterns I've discovered lately!
Also hooray for knitter-pal Anne's genius idea to use Kermit as a model for baby knits.
You can see that I was a little overexcited after binding off and weaving in all the ends! Hopefully the parents-to-be and the baby will be as pleased as our little green friend when they get the sweater :)
