New Spiral Baby Shrug in Development

I have been dreaming about circles over the last week. Strange huh? It's what happens when I don't read before I go to bed, I dream about future projects. Unfortunately I finished reading "The Queen's Fool" a few days ago, and without a new book readily available to pick up, I've started obsessing about trying to figure out how to make a baby sweater out of a circle.

I am proud to say that I've completed FOUR projects this week, so I am allowing myself to start a new one. I've had 4 balls of Bernat soy yarn in a bag under my sewing table for the last 5 months waiting for an idea to strike. This seemed like the perfect project to use it.

I had made 3 spiraling berets for Christmas presents and was happy with the inside out technique of knitting a circle, so I'm starting the same way. I am hoping that the rest of the details gel as I get large enough for armholes and ribbing.

I am loving how silky smooth and glossy this yarn is. It is super soft, knits easily, and is washable. If all goes well, Charlotte will be happy with her baby soft Spiral Shrug.
