Weekend update

first off I have to say that I did not take a Saturday Sky picture … I forgot Annoyed And Disappointed … However I did manage to finish DD’s shrug it turned out okay I think if I had it to do all over again I would pick a different pattern … I will get a picture of it soon.

We carved our pumkin today here is how “Jack” looks … I also finally got the hat, booties, mittens and blanket in the mail to my friend! Baby Girl She is going to be SO happy!! I am now trying to find another blanket pattern for another friend who is due in December. I was thinking of this pattern from the frugal haus. But I am not sure what yarn I want to use … too many decisions!

So I am now going to knit the half dome (from knitty) … for my brother. He bought a Harley and he still drives it to work and his head gets cold (under his helmet of course) … so he asked me to knit him a hat. I am using a charcoal grey wool (he has a black helmet).

Have a great week!!

I know how to fix it!!

I have put a life line in just above the eaten part of the shrug … I am going to cut the part below and then put those sts on the needles and reknit. I saw this on an episode of Knitty Gritty … after calming down, and reflecting a bit on what had just happened I realized that I was not all that happy with the 1×1 ribbing cuff and I can now rework a bit and have the shrug have rolled sleeves …

Also, I forgot to mention this earlier, Thank you to my Secret Pal for the very cute ecard she sent on Friday. You Rock

More baby things

My friend finally had the baby (the one the blanket is going to). She had a little girl, 9.5 pounds. So along with the blanket I decided to make something pink … so I whip up these booties, using TLC Cotton Plus in pink and white. I am also making a hat from the same yarn, and because this hat is for a little girl I am not going to put the knot on the top … I think it will look cute without it … this is so cute and the first time that I have tried this sort of a pattern …

I do have a question … when doing a pattern such as this one is this what the inside of the hat is suposed to look like? Because for the life of me I could not figure out any other way to do the hearts!?? Have a great day!
