Leave No Stroll Bright Behind

I know I've mentioned this before, but I love Stroll Brights. I think in the last office meeting here at Knit Picks I might have been referred to as "Our Lady of Stroll Brights". I'll take it!

Perhaps you'll find some neon inspiration, too.

As you may know, I'm a fingering weight yarn fanatic trying to branch out, so I chose to make a cardigan for my baby out of DK weight yarn, and am happy with the results! It's in Capra, in the color Turmeric, and isn't it the perfect shade for Fall?

Hawthorne for kiddo projects

My son Nate is growing like a weed, and keeping up with his increasingly-large clothing is a bit of a challenge.  I tend to get all wide-eyed from sticker shock when I see baby and toddler sweaters in stores, so most of my knitting lately has focused on little pullovers and cardigans.
