Project Details: Started on February 3rd and finished on April 4th. It really didn't take me that long, since I was mixing in cross stitch at the time. I had three balls of delicious sock yarn from Elann (baby silk). The pattern is called Eileen Dress (although this is more like a long shirt more than a dress). It is really soft and I think will be good for spring and into summer. I followed the 18 month size for the top and 24 month for the width at the bottom. I'll try to post a photo of her in it.
9 skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed Chunky - 495 yards. Size 10.5 needles. I made the size 40" chest (small). But it is not 40" at all! Fits okay on a medium frame. Started on December 12 and finished on January 22nd. Fun to knit!
I had a great skein of handspun 100% angora yarn. It was around sport weight and I did these on size 3 needles. Only took ~150 yards or so and I invented the pattern as I went. I think my swap buddy will like them.
Simple Beanie Hat. Started on January 24 and finished January 26. Fast knit with hand dyed yarn. Size 5 and 6 needles. This is a bit on the tight side - I measured her head to be 17.5" and that is what I knit - but tight nonetheless. Next time a bit bigger.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
