Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Baby knitting

I've been busy knitting some baby stuff for SuKnitWitty's new grandson who will be arriving any day now.

Of course some socks!! A basic pattern using DK weight yarn on size 4 dpns and casting on 24 sts...
And a little hat with a cute pompom on top...
I used a basic hat pattern (again with the basic), size 5 dpn, and cast on 74 sts

And I couldn't resist trying the bib and washcloth patterns from Down Cloverlaine
I used 100% cotton for them. They came out so cute! I bought some more cotton so I can make some for my future granddaughter (due to arrive in Jan).

(I've been trying hard not to start something new and to finish up a couple of UFOs. I have resisted so far and managed to knit 36 rows on the beaded scarf. But I'm weakening.... maybe if I eat some chocolate I can resist the startitis bug? I heard chocolate was good for everything!!)

So cute and sooooo appreciated. I'm thinkin Grandson's head will be a little bigger...but the cap will stretch.
