Princess Pea Gloves

Instead of buying gloves for halloween… besides who knows where to find those nice gloves in pink…. for a relatively cheap price? I decided to knit them. It’s my first time knitting gloves. I’ve done mittens, but not gloves. I used to think that it’s very difficult to pick up stitches, but actually, it’s not that bad. I think I get better at it each time I do it.

I need to put a bright green fringe on the cuff, but other than that, I have one hand done. I used this pattern. I have to say that it is confusing. I had to assume several things for it to make sense to me. Maybe I just don’t have enough experience reading patterns, but they should try and make it a little bit easier. Plus the format kind of sucks.

Booties and Hats

DSCN0748

I’ve been making booties like there’s no tomorrow. They don’t take very long to make, which is nice. I find that sewing seams is not as great as I thought. I suppose I prefer knitting in the round. The colors are flame orange, military camouflage, purple, pink, and yellow. The yellow ones are spoken for.

I knit this hat for a new infant due in December, to go with the yellow booties. Now I have to make mittens, and then another set of hat, booties, and mittens.

Ribbon Yarn Scarves

DSCN0706

I finished three ribbon scarves. It took me a couple days to finish them. I used pretty big needles, so it went pretty fast. I used three skeins of the yarn, but I still have more of it. I have more black, pink, and light pink(which I haven’t made anything out of yet).DSCN0707 Maybe some trendy girl will like the difference between black and teal. My daughters like the feel of them. Very soft. They’re all youth sized.DSCN0709DSCN0710 DSCN0711

On my needles – Red and Purple Hat

I promised my aunt a hat… a while ago. She requested these colors. 🙂 It’s like the red hat society. It should be done within the next week, depending on how my children behave and if I can knit while they’re awake or if I have to do it when they are asleep.

I went to the local yarn store today. I haven’t been to the store … wow… since before I was married and that was like almost 4 years ago. It changed a lot. But I found this skein of yarn and I never knew how much you could really like yarn until I saw this one. It’s Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop, color: Bright Spot. I think I’ll make myself a hat out of it. It’s so soft. I just want to bury my face in it.
