FO sighting

Yesterday I went through several bins, and managed to find the purple capri sweats I was looking for, as well as The Gambler's red Bass shirt (in a bin that had made it into the rec room downstairs), butI was unable to find my darning needles. So I walked to (the websiteless) Passionknit, which is my new LYS. Emphasis on the L, because it took all of about 5 minutes to get there - according to Google Maps, it's 300 metres from my house. They had just gotten a shipment of new fall stock, including several new Rowan Yarns - like Kidsilk Aura and Cocoon - this shop might be my downfall! I managed to bypass the new yarns and get my needles, and last night I seamed up the 5 Ring Circus Cardigan:
5 ring circus finished
Stats:
Pattern: Bamboozle Baby Striped Jacket
Yarn: Crystal Palace Bamboozle - .9 skein carib blue, 2.1 skein circus
Needles: US8 Options
Cast on: July 25
Cast off: August 7
Completed: August 8

I still have leftovers, so I will probably knit up a matching cap. Possibly booties as well. I am very new to baby knitting, so I don't have a good feel for yarn requirements yet.

Oh, very nice. I love the colours. I haven't been to Passionknit quite yet, but it is on my list: http://tinyurl.com/2pnehl

Oh that sweater is adorable!

Good luck with the truly local yarn shop. There are two in my neighborhood that are less than 4 blocks away ...

Very cute sweater! Baby stuff is so much fun to do; it goes fast and doesn't take much yarn.

Gotta love having a LYS within walking distance! (I do) ;)

What an adorable little sweater! Thanks for linking to the pattern. It will come in handy.

Love the colors. And I am so jealous about your having a LYS just down the street. My Dallas one is 1.6 mi from the office; my favorite FW one is 17.4 mi from the house.

I've got one of those LYSs near me too--it takes longer to find a parking spot than it does to drive there. Very dangerous.

LOVE that sweater! Thanks for the link. Top-down---who can go wrong???

Definitely a LOCAL yarn shop! Must be nice....However, I have no willpower. So it's probably just as well that mine isn't quite as close....

Now that's just adorable.

Very very cute sweater!!

I'm so jealous of a LYS in walking distance. That's even better than Coffee Shop in walking distance.

Hmm. I have a Walmart in walking distance. Can't quite compare.
