Lack of Blogging Does Not Equal Lack of Knitting

Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono
from Mason Dixon Knitting. Used 1.5 skeins of Lily Sugar 'n Cream in camouflage. I ran this adorable baby blue ribbon with brown dots through the eyelets resulting from yarn over increases along the neckline. I went ahead and ran the ribbon across the inside back neck and back down the other front. On kimonos I've made in the past, I've used buttons, but this time I used the ribbon to tie the kimono shut both on the inside and the outside. I believe it came out heartbreakingly cute, as promised by the title of the pattern.

I return from a blog vacation. The last few weeks of school were just generally hectic, and immediately following the release of school, we went on a fabulous family vacation, the three of us, to San Diego. It was a wonderful time. We ran from sun-up to sun-down (and past) and came home exhausted, just as it should be when one is vacationing.
There was little knitting the final weeks of school and first weeks of summer break, but I'm back on it! There is another finished object, but the parents-to-be have not yet received it, so I'm reluctant to post pics. The above baby knit was sent on the the anticipating parents as a baby knitting teaser, thus the posting of these pictures. However, there is more knitting for the same recipients, so my pictures may not come forth for awhile. These knits are for babies so stay tuned for the typical, adorable baby knit pictures to come.
p.s. my knitting went on vacation with me, but did not make it to the beach, nor into my fingers. Ah well, at least they can say they've been to California.
