Moving forward

I swatched for the bunny from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts yesterday.

(Aside: in my next life, I would like more common sense. My gauge was too dense, so I switched to smaller needles. I'll say that again: I switched to smaller needles. Guess what? My gauge was even denser! Duh. When I tried again with size 8 needles, voila. it was a lot closer. Still a tad dense [20 stitches where I was aiming for 18], but close enough for a toy.)

I knitted one bunny arm last night. It was easy and mindless. I do hope this one goes fast. After the bunny, which is for my godparents' youngest son's first child, I'll be starting on the corn bunting, hoping to be done by the baby shower. I picked up the wool again last night. It's so soft. And machine washable and dryable! Ah, the wonders of modern science.

Gauge is a b*tch. I am faking it on Leigh's sweater, aiming for bigger so hopefully she can wear it more than once.
