I have yet to start the baby sweater - but I swear I will not let this lag until it no longer fits the baby...I still have a few months before it is born! I've been delayed by knitting swatches over and over again (thrice) to find the right needle size for the yarn I want to use. Finally found it!
Georges is coming along nicely. I am on leg seven today! I hope to finish this by the end of next week but that may be a bit optimistic, considering I always shilly shally on the putting pieces together stages, and I also have to learn the "backwards loop" technique. I can tell I'm getting adventurous in my knitting these days when I start a pattern before even fully reading it through and making sure the techniques used won't be too difficult!
Here's Georges to date:

What are you knitting, or otherwise creating, these days? Do you know the French names for other sea creatures? How about how to do the "backwards loop" knitting technique?
