On My Needles

Break in between piano lessons. Sitting in the garden, knitting. Here’s what’s on my needles…

A Little Something Sweet

Sheesh! I’ve been away from this blog for a LONG time! Life has brought some lovely changes our way lately.

First of all, we moved a few months ago, and now we are WAY closer to the Waldorf school were, in a mere three weeks, both of my girlies will be in full day school, five days a week! I know, whoa, what’s a mama to do?! Well, I am seriously ramping up my piano lessons (I teach at Wildflower School of Music in Dripping Springs). And I also hope to be able to spend more time knitting and developing patterns again.

The one I’ve been developing lately is a sweet little doll dress. It fits both our Waldorf dolls, and our 18 inch American girl dolls. And it looks adorable on both!

I have two more on my needles right now, but here is a photo of the one I have finished so far.

And, if you are curious about the move, here are some photos of the new place… Which just happens to be our own little mini farm!

Now y’all probably need some time to process all this sweetness, so I’ll let you have a moment to yourselves… See you soon!

sittin’ & waitin’

Ok, I guess this isn’t exactly blue… But it’s kind of purple! Sitting in the car waiting to pick up the littles and working on a pair of almost mittens for Lu.

I’m using a beautiful variegated Cascade 220 on size 6 needles. Cast on 30 stitches. Look for the next post to see how many rows I end up with!

my first socks!

Two thirds of the way into my first pair of socks and I am just smitten! They are adorable little bed socks that will be perfect with a pair of clogs… If only I hadn’t given my clogs away… Guess I’ll have to get another pair!

I’m using the Turkish Bed Socks pattern by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.

And now, the hunt for more fabulous sock yarn begins!

car knitting

Sitting in the car while the baby naps in the back… Don’t worry, the AC is on!

Always have a knitting project close by in case you get an opportunity to work on it!

This is a pinwheel blanket that I’m making for Amelia.

I can still knit!

So, as it turns out, having two kids is insane! Good, but man oh man, it’s all consuming. Now that baby A is nine months old I am just starting to find a little time to knit again.

Just thought I’d let y’all know that I’ve still got it.

Today I’m working on a rainbow felted water bottle holder for big L, who’s starting kindergarten at the Waldorf school in the fall.

Oh yeah, and I got some new lenses and flashes for my hipstamatic app. This is taken with the Holga lens on Ina’s 1969 film with a red gel flash. Lovin’ it!

I’m using Malabrigo worsted yarn.
