You can't always get what you Quant...

I finished Quant! About two weeks ago but I can't seem to get myself to blog. Between taking care off and playing with Iep, starting my own business (more about that later) and that darn fantabulous Ravelry... I just can't seem to find enough time.
But here it is. Knitting Frog surprised me with a skein of really soft yarn and beads to match, luscious stuff. Thanks again Froggie! :-)
The colours are no way near natural, I tried all the buttons and handles on my camera and I can't get it right. It's brighter, more yellow and more green and not so grayish in real life!

Somewhere in between I managed to finish Iep's sweater. It's from Marie Claire's 'Knitting for Baby's' (sorry no link, can't find it online...) and I ran out of yarn right at the last sleeve. I decided to make it a patchwork sweater and added some Phildar pure laine in two threads to sort-of-match the gauge. It works!

'Help mommy, I flew up onto the ceiling!!'

'Mom, listen, this blogpost has loads of spelling mistakes in it, you better get here and fix it!'

Ach wat wordt 'ons' mannetje al groot!! Zijn trui is juist door het probleem van te weinig garen bijzonder en uniek geworden. Eigenlijk veel leuker dan het origineel.
En dan de sjaal en muts: ook al zo cool (ahum warm bedoel ik en mooi).

Wow Lep is growing soooo fast! He looks right at home in front of the computer. Very cute.

ik verbaas me net als Tijm an Rachael over Iep: jeetje, wat groeit dat kind.
