WOW It has been a LONG time since I've blogged. Don't even know if any of you are still reading this, but I want to start blogging again, so no time like now! I will show some of the things I have knit since I last posted. Below is the Shalom Cardigan. LOVED this knit. All the modifications I made are on my Ravelry page. It is warm and cozy!!
The next little knit is what I like to call "Pirate Butts Ahoy"!! I made two pairs of these for a good friend. She has two boys and they look so cute in them.
My family back in Kentucky has been popping out babies lately and I've enjoyed knitting the next two little sweaters for new cousin's in the family. I saw this little sweater and really enjoyed the knit. It went to cutie patootie Piper. I really think the sweater is prettier in person, just saying. The sweater below went to sweet little Olive. I had to do some searching for this pattern as it was an out of date pattern that is not published any longer. This was a very enjoyable knit and turned out beautiful! Who know how long it will take the wee ones to grow into them, but I hope one day to see them in the sweaters.
This sweater was knitted for my beautiful niece, Lana. She was so over joyed that she got to go with me and pick out the buttons. I had buttons in mind, but she didn't know that. Luckily I found the buttons I wanted and Lana loved them!! There are more pictures of Lana on my Ravelry page. The jacket was designed by my friend Denise and it's called Mya's Jacket. You can buy the pattern here on Ravelry.
It's finally here. The last day of the school year. Isn't summer almost over?? Anyway....
Just a couple fun things to share. Jacob had his final concert of the year and really enjoyed learning how to play the viola. These are Jacob and Nathan's spring pictures. Nathan age 5. Jacob age 8. Teacher's gifts from Jacob. They say "Thanks for helping me grow." Next post will be knitting goodies. I have a couple things finished.
Say Hello to Otto!!! Isn't he just the most adorable polar bear!?? Nathan isn't home at this moment and does not know that Otto is finished! I have placed Otto on Nathan's bed to rest because I'm sure he will have a busy day tomorrow!!!
Yes I have been knitting!! I finished this baby sweater at the beginning of the month. It's the Baby Trellis sweater from Knitty.com. Aren't the button's cute as...well...a button?!?? :o)
Here's a shot of the back of the sweater. This past Tuesday, Nathan and I went to Yarn and Fiber to meet Ysolda. What a beautiful sweet person! I enjoyed looking at all her hand knits and I have been asked by my son to make Otto the Polar Bear. So below is the head of Otto and the start of his body. I love that this is a seamless pattern!! Very clever!
This is Nathan and Ysolda. Nathan is holding all the little animals. Even a little mouse on his shoulder. He really enjoyed playing with the stuffies and Ysolda was very happy to let him play with them. As soon as I bought the pattern for Otto and printed it, the ink had not yet dried from printing and Nathan asked me "Are you finished yet?" LOL What a silly boy.
