Today I minded my littlest granddaughter while #1 daughter met with our designer.

We played with the Playmobil animals. She likes the tiger and the cows in particular. Apparently they taste best.

I finished off the body of the first mitten. I may get the thumb done tomorrow.

But I actually did start on the Newport Classic. I rolled up a ball of Peony Prism yarn last night, and used the start on the Venus Blue sweater for my swatch. You can see these yarns in the picture at the beginning of the post. The gauge is 22 stitches to 4 inches, but this is closer to 6 stitches to the inch. It could be too small, but since it’s a top-down raglan, I can just keep knitting till it’s big enough.
