I am currently working on a second Baby Sophisticate because I just love the pattern and the construction, too many baby patterns are seamed.
On something that small do we have to weave in a million ends AND seam?! I can see lots of pattern tweaking in my future.

I've bought 46 balls of yarn this month. 46!!! I am supposed to be destashing. It seems I've had my little rebellion but now I vow not to buy any yarn whatsoever until 2012. I was thinking about banning myself from swaps too but I think that might be too harsh. I'll have to reduce my swapping activities though and see how it goes. The yarn diet is non-negotiable :)

I thought it was until I actually started researching it a bit more. Instead of just making random things and donating them to charity shops, targeting specific causes who have specific needs means that hopefully my charity knitting won't be lame and will actually help someone out there! I have made seven 8 inch squares for Knit a Square. I'm looking through some baby FOs to give to a friend who donates to a womens' refuge. I'm planning to knit a square or 3 for Sian O'Callaghan's healing blanket. see this Rav group for more info: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/sian-ocallaghan-healing-memory-blanket
