Tugley in His Handknitted Hoodie

This is Tugley

Tug has been bribed with an oatmeal cookie (several) to strike a pose. Yes, he is licking his lips! He will sleep next to me in my chair for as LOOOOONG as I want to sit and knit without a bribe.

For the last couple of days, I have been wishy washy about what I want to knit. I know I need a break from socks! I need to be knitting baby things; so I spent a couple of days thinking about what I wanted to knit and looking through all the baby knitting books I have.
I decided that for a newborn, I don't want to spend a lot of time knitting something Baby Stockwell (no name yet) will outgrow immediately yet I want to knit something he can wear right away. So, I decided on a very simple baby boat neck sweater - easy and quick yet very cute! Hat and socks to match, probably.

Just visited your blogg by way of your link at sockknitters. I may try the knot head socks - I would love to do the hat, will you be putting it on your blogg also?
I have knitted for years but have just started my first pair of socks (today) I am using the cyber lesson on sockknitters with 2 circular needles. A friend got me to the sockknitters site, she is a very accomplished sockknitter.
I also would love the pattern for the beautiful shawl!! It is gorgeous. Your baby gifts are wonderful and I am sure she will LOVE them all.
I will put your blogg on my favorites so I can check it out from time to time.
