1 mitten down

I used the mitten pattern from Anne Budd’s pattern book, but because of the yarn I knit all rows and shortened the thumb a bit and made the cuff part longer.  And of course like the hat she is trying to take the mitten away before it’s finished …

I really enjoyed my time as a Ravelympics mod … the wonderful BobicusMaximus (Ravelympics Master of Ceremonies) has made a special moderator medal. 

Thank you BobicusMaximus!

Hat is Finished

I finished the hat this morning … here is dd modeling (face blured to protect the innocent).  She has not taken off the hat since I finished it.   Here is a close up of the hat.

 Now she wants a pair of fingureless mittens to match, so since I have a skein+ left fingureless mittens is what she will get. I just need to find a pattern.

Just a hat

Bubble Gum Hat

Bubble Gum Hat

I needed a different project … so I am making this hat, I am using Bernat Baby Bubbles in Bubble Gum.  This is for the girl & I really think it will be a soft warm hat for winter.  Also, the boy wants a hat for winter I have some brown yarn some where that will work out quite well for him.

11 Days till school starts!!

Need another skein …

I really hate it when you don’t have enough yarn to finish a sweater.   I started this sweater for my daughter back in like October, and because I am a serious procrastinator I am still not finished.  Last night I finished the sleeves, and started on the button boarder on the front and the collar, I noticed that there was not a lot of yarn so I put it up for the night.  This morning I settled in with my coffee, the olympics then realized I needed more yarn. I went to the closet and much to my dismay there was no more.  I am using TLC cotton plus and the only place I can get it around here is AC Moore which is 45 minutes away … so it looks like this is going to stay a WIP until I have another reason to go in the direction of AC Moore …

EDIT: I found part of a skein in a left overs bag … we shall see how far it takes me.

Monday 8/4

I have been rather derelict in my posting, unless it is just a quick picture that I have to post, I have spent no time attending to my blog.  So with that out of the way, on to the fun stuff.

Still making progress on the Aran Afghan.  I think it is going to be a wonderful gift but man does it take up a ton of time to knit.  I am not really looking forward to having to sew all the squares together … should have thought of that when I chose the pattern. 

Also I have finally started to work on dd’s sweater.  I am currently knitting the sleeves, and now that she is older the sleeves take even longer, but I am about 1/2 way through them. 

I have also decieded on sweaters to knit for my nieces for christmas.  For the oldest I am going to knit this Ballet Set, since she is in dance I thought it would be good for her.  And for the younset one I am going to do make this Ribbed Baby Jacket

I promise to post some picture of the sweater and blanket soon … I just have to take some.  🙂
