Bunch of breeders--

Herrschner's had Nashua Cilantro on sale a few weeks back, and it sounded appealing. A little cotton, a little stretch-what's not to like?? I picked up a few balls.
Every side of the family is racing to have the next kid-my brother, my niece, and possibly my DD, so I went ahead and cast this on-it's out of Creative Knitting, and seemed like just the thing. I'm nearing the end of the hood, and have only the sleeves left to do.
I know the baby is cute, but I'll stand up for mi familia and say at least one of them will probably produce a cuter one. (No conceit in my family!)
Stitch pattern used: (Multiple of 6)
Row 1: *P3, K1, YO, K2tog*
Row 2: P3, K3
Row 3: K
Row 4: P
The stitch pattern is a champ on variegated yarns.
Edited to add: I am using the colorway "brights" which is the knitted column on the left.

Cute pattern (yeah, and baby). I like the stitch pattern and I'll add it to my repertoire for charity baby projects.

You have been one seriously busy person; I hope you can find a bit of time just to meditate and enjoy an adult beverage.

Oooh, how exciting to have a new baby coming. Watch all three have babies, then you'll have to knit 2 more baby items!!! Which color are you knitting this in? And when do we get a peek at it?

Oh, I am unclear, Marie-it's that multicolored thing at the left side! Oh, I just got a phone call, all three of them are breeding!!!

Oh! Sorry, I should have realized that was the yarn you were using. That should work for both genders.

That's great news! I guess they're taking bets on who'll be born first? With your luck, they'll all have triplets, and you'll get to knit up 9 of those sweaters.

Have a nice weekend Bets. I'm gonna try to finish up HUGe item #6 this weekend. After I'm done with all 10, I'll be coming to you for shipping advice!!!

Oh wow, how nice to have so many babies to knit for. I keep getting the urge to do baby things, but no potential giftees in sight.

That's one cute and happy cardi. Good job!

Re baby cuteness: the other day I found myself driving behind a woman with a bumper sticker that said "My grandkids are cuter than yours" and I could only think "You wish..."
I'm with you all the way!
