Baby Blanket

My cousin has decided to become a foster mother. She’s approved for infants to 2 year olds… which means she’s not going to get a lot of sleep. But I thought I’d give her some of my hand knits. I’m using two strands of baby yarn together and a 10 1/2 circular needle. I think this is going to be awesome. After I’m done blocking it, I’m going to put a piece of fabric on the back so you can’t pull the fair isle floats. I’m using a cross stitch pattern as my fair isle pattern. I bought it on Etsy. I’m planning on doing most of them blue, and one of them bright neon yellow. I hope it turns out well.

Crumpled Pattern

I found this underneath the ottoman as I was cleaning up this evening. It is my pattern for the shawl that I’m knitting. (My husband doesn’t want to spend money on the ink for our printer – probably good for me because I think I went on a printing rampage once or twice). Here’s an update on my progress. I’m using a size 9 needle this time. I’m kind of excited about this one.

I thought that this yarn and this stitch pattern would be fitting for a man. It seems I have a lot of yarn for girls, but not so much that suit boys. I guess that’s fitting, seeing as I have two toddler girls.

I used size 15 needles and two strands of worsted weight yarn. I think it took me two-three days. Since I didn’t have to think very much about the stitch pattern, I got to read “Bringing it to the Table” by Wendell Berry.

I didn’t use a pattern for this hat. It took me a while to figure out a stitch repeat that would work with the number of stitches I cast on.

These booties are from this pattern.IMG_0215This scarf is also going with this gift. It doesn’t match, but it is still green and white.
