Knitting catch-up

I made a baby sweater and dress for my sister Abby's baby.  

The dress is the fast, free Infant Peasant Dress pattern from Sew Much Ado. It's sewn from so-sweet vintage fabric I thrifted. The sweater is a clever little pattern from Hannah Fetting- the Yoked Cardigan. It's knit up with Malabrigo worsted. It still needs buttons of course. The way I operate, I will probably be sewing them on at stoplights on the day of the baby's arrival.  

Also, Laura and I have made a rule- no more baby crafting until after Christmas. There are so many sweet knitting projects I want to get started on for this spring-time baby, but I'm standing firm and won't make anymore baby garments, no matter how tiny or dear, until at least December 26. 

Progress has stalled on the sweater for my husband. I need to re-commit to this project if it's going to get done in time for Christmas. Maybe I don't have enough deadline pressure yet and am just waiting for that to build up a bit. I am a bit stumped about how to proceed once I finish the second sleeve, so that could be part of the problem as well... 

I've gone back to the felted mason jar cozies I started so long ago. Hoping to have this pattern available for sale in the next few weeks. It's for a total of 10 different sizes of cozies to cover mason jars, Klean Kanteen water bottles, and a beer bottle. I'm including all the stripe patterns as well as the different handle options.

I just have to knit one more and then it's on to the tech editor. Here they are pre-felting: 

I'm painting my living room today, but after that, I'm working on pants for the little guy I showed you yesterday, so stay tuned this week for some tiny knitting.
