Diamond Lace Set In Progress

Helen and I are knitting a surprise gift for a colleague who's having twins - one boy and one girl! She's doing the blue half of the set, and I'm doing the yellow half. So far we've done the body of the sweaters and started on the sleeves.

Here's the body:

The set also includes mittens, bootees and a hat. Here's a closeup of the diamonds:

A Gorgeous Afghan, by Helen

Isn't it lovely? I wish I could knit nothing but blankets, most of the time...

What I've Been Busy With...

Another baby project - a top secret one, for a colleague at work who's having twins! but doesn't know that Helen and I are busy knitting for her...

The set comes from an old Red Heart pattern book (from the '70s? '60s? No bar code, ISBN or date!) and includes a sacque, a cap, mittens and bootees, all with a diamond lace pattern.

I'll try to post an in-progress photo by the weekend.
