WIP Wednesday… I mean Thursday

With the arrival of Baby Moo rapidly approaching, I’m committing myself to finishing up some projects that I’ve been working on for WAY too long.

Here are a few that are in the final stages.

First up, the Little Lulan Dress (formally known as the Little Sister Dress)…  I’ve finished all the knitting, and all I have left to do is put on the buttons and sew in the ends.

Next up, I have the very first knitted item that I have completed for Baby Moo (which is so sad, because by this point in my pregnancy with Lulan I had probably made her at least five or six knitted treasures)… an Owlie Sleep Sack!  I still need to block this, but here’s what it looks like pre-blocked.

It has tiny little cabled owls around the top of the sack… but I think it’s interesting how the whole thing kind of looks like an owl too.

I actually altered this pattern a little bit to leave the bottom open with a drawstring so we can get in to change diapers easily.  And because it’s made of wool, we can use it as a cloth diaper cover as well!

What are you working on this week?  I’d love to see, so please share!

WIP longies update

Just finished the first leg of the WIP (work in progress) custom longies… I really love them.  The yarn has created this kind of striping/spiral pattern that is pretty sweet.

What doing Momma?

I have a two year old little girl who’s favorite question is “What doing Momma?” Ninety percent of the time my answer is “I’m knitting”. And that’s what this blog is all about – what I’m up to with my needles and yarn, with a dash of that other ten percent occasionally thrown in to keep it interesting.

I am a mom and piano teacher by day, and a pattern designer by night (and any other tiny speck of time I can pick up my needles!). So most of my knitting adventures are some form of a pattern I am in the process of creating. But I also knit custom longies, shorties and soakers (which are cloth diaper covers).

Today I’m sharing the pair of custom longies (toddler pants) that I’m working on.

The yarn is Mosaic Moon in Birthday Boy colorway, and it’s absolutely scrumptious!

I’m knitting them from the top down, so the ribbing that you see is the waist.
