I sort of really love this idea.
Too bad I don't have three designs ready to go.
And too bad I'm not American...
I'd be all over it if I did/was!
I will most certainly be tuning in however.

|Nail Colour- RBG in shade 'Red'|
I know that these gloves probably look familiar. And that's because... it wasn't too long ago that you saw another pair right on this here blog.
But after seeing my friend Tara churn through many-a-pair in this beautiful yarn (not only beautiful to look at, but also SO beautiful to knit with!), I couldn't contain myself.
I cast on, and before I knew it, a new pair of fingerless mitts had just fallen off of my needles.
Two by two ribbing and hand painted merino with 20% alpaca.
Pattern- Churchmouse Yarns and Teas Ferryboat Mitts
Yarn- Misti Alpaca Handpainted Worsted in the shade 'Flora'
Needles- 4mm DPN
So if you don't have a pair yet.
What are you waiting for?
Surely you don't want to end up like this guy.

Pink, red, stripes, and some little heart buttons.
Little heart buttons that found their way into my stocking this Christmas, courtesy of my sister Emma.
But do not let this sudden onslaught of baby knitting allow you to think that perhaps I might be pregnant.
Because... you would be sorely disappointed.
Much like "Auntie Emma" was yesterday when she discovered that my text to her which included a photo of this sweater using her buttons was NOT in fact a baby announcement.
So, sorry folks.
No babies baking over here.
But that doesn't mean I can't knit for babies- does it?
Lovey-Dovey Sweater Facts
Pattern- Striped Baby Cardigan by Debbie Bliss, from her book Baby Cashmerino 2
(this is the fourth time I have knit this, so I don't expect too much of an applause over it).
Yarn- Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, 2 balls each of shade 601 (baby pink) and shade 700 (ruby)
Size- 6-9 months
Needles- 2.75mm and 3.5mm (I always bump up my needles when I knit with this stuff)
Recipient- The invisible baby that lives at Mary's Yarns (meaning... it's a store sample)
That imaginary baby is going to be one festively dressed little creature today.
As for what I am wearing... that goes without saying.
Happy Valentines Day dear knitters.
May your day be nothing but 'sweet'.

We just got back from a week of being blissfully disconnected from all things 'inter-webs' while hanging out on the beautiful island of St. Lucia.
It was a week of no internet, but a week with no shortage of sun, sand and swimming.
I guess that trips like this one are often referred to as a 'honeymoon'.
And let me tell you... it certainly was pretty sweet.
So as we were taking off from gross, grey Toronto, I cast on these beautiful honey coloured socks, to commemorate our 'honey'moon.
I hauled those socks down to the beach with me everyday. Days in which I spent cycling through a pattern of 'knit, read, swim, nap, repeat'.
I have returned home a little bit more tanned, a little bit more rested and with a fresh new pair of socks to add to my sock drawer.
Which as it turns out, is perfect.
Because while you are someplace as beautiful and as warm as the tropics, it is often difficult to imagine that there might be snow waiting for you at home.
But it is certainly a good thing that I didn't let my doubts get the best of me.
Because it looks like... I'm going to need these.
