I’ve been working on the medium size for my longies pattern that I’m writing up. They’re coming along very nicely in this lovely Purewool yarn. I just love knitting with Purewool! It’s so soft and squishy…. mmmm…
And speaking of my longies pattern, I’m so grateful to all of my wonderful pattern testers. Y’all are so amazing and your insight is priceless. Thank you!
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!
My body is starting to take on a bit of roundness…
I’m experimenting with round knitting. Not to be confused with knitting in the round. I’m actually knitting things that will ultimately be round.
This is my first experiment, a round dish cloth.
What I really want to make is a round baby blanket for baby #2, who’s arriving in late September, but I figure I ought to start with something a bit smaller.
I’m working up the pattern for some sweet little lacy almost mittens. Here’s what I’ve got so far.
What do you think?
Just started working on a slouch hat pattern using some nice, bulky, deep magenta yarn…. really, just started. I’ll post again when there’s more to show.
Working on another square for the AWS Knit-a-Thon. We’ll be sewing all of the squares together to make scarves for the homeless.
Oh no! I lost a day! Well, here you go, wip thursday!
