So I haven´t been very good at my itty-bitty knitting the last week. I guess I took a tiny brake.
I finished the wrap me up puppy #1 with his blanket. This puppy was made with left over yarn
I started on wrap me up puppy #2. He needs a blanket which is almost half way finished. This puppy was made with donated yarn.
After this I will only have 9 toys left to make of the 27 to make from Itty-Bitty Toys by Susan B Anderson! Looks like I am right on track to finish the book by February 2011.
I worked on my Big Montana Tunic I´ve finished the main piece and I´m working on the cowl. I can´t wait to have it finished. It´s getting chilly in the mornings and at night.
I realized that I need to make M some stroller socks and O needs a hat. So that will be next weeks plan.
I took one of my dormant projects that I had almost finished but, the pattern was in Norwegen and I had made a mistake and I didn´t know how to fix it because I couldn´t understand the pattern, I unraveled the whole thing. It was knit from the bottom up and now I´m knitting it my way from the top down. It is for M. A cute sheep sweater. Looking forward to finishing it.
I knit a little on my Cedar Leaf Shawlette.
I also knit up this shawl but I´m about 3-5 skeins short of finishing it. Maybe I will get the yarn to finish it for my birthday. It’s the simple yet effective shawl and it’s free on ravelry.com. It’s knit up with Noro in several different colors.
I also started a scrappy blanket. It´s fun. I had a while bunch of yarn that was too short to make anything really with and I had cut all of these odds and ends off of the princess and the pea stuff so I decided to knot them together and make something from it but what? I took up the crotchet hook and started hooking. I´m going to leave the ends hanging out as part of its charm but each one of these ends has a story. They each have something to say to me when I look at them. It´s everything from super expensive yarn to cheep cotton. Maybe I will just keep making it till it becomes a bed cover for me in my old age remembering all the things I made.
I´ve got a pattern floating around my head and I need to knit it up and write it up so that I can move on. All I can do is think about it and how great it will be when I have finished it. It would be awesome knit up in soft alpaca/merino blend but all I have is some Cascade eco. But it will work. Nice and warm. Just a little scratchy. Maybe in the next month I can have it finished and share it with you.
I got some yarn this week.
The skeins that are not wound are going as prizes so keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway as soon as I have finished the toys that I am making with the wound skeins.
Then there are these.They will become a toy.
Then some photos from my life.
This is my work space when it comes to blogging and knitting and designing.
The best hubby and kids a mom could ask for.
My little boy is potty training. But slowly.
My bread decided to spill out the side since I cut the slits in the top too early
