Still no knitting content

First off, Christ is risen!

Secondly, last week was Holy Week in the Orthodox church (well, actually, all Christian churched). So I was never home, between working days and going to church every night. Needless to say, not much got knitted.

I don't know. I'm just not knitting as much lately, and I can't figure out why that is. I don't think I'm all that busy, but apparently, I am! Really, only four FOs in four months? Unheard of!

I guess I'm close to being done with my friend's teddy bear. I ran out of the yarn I was using for her bathrobe, so I had to wait until I went and got more. I have all the pieces to the pajamas knitted and need to assemble them. I have the back and one front of the bathrobe knitted, as well. I still need to knit the other front, the sleeves, the pockets, and the belt, and assemble the robe. Finally, I need to make the slippers.

While waiting for the trip to the store, I started on a super-secret project for a dear friend's baby girl. I've seen her read this blog, so I'm not gonna go into specifics until I'm done and she receives the thing.

Speaking of super-secret things, I have decided that I am going to design, write up, and submit a project to Knitty (or Magknits). I have the design in mind and the yarn at home, and an adorable little model all lined up. I can't go into specifics, but it's a baby item...I think that's safe to say. I'm aiming for the June submission deadline -- wish me luck!

Good luck with your design! How exciting!

Don't feel bad about not getting much knitted. I have been a complete slacker until recently.
