Well there is nothing like your honey saying, "Can you knit something up as a gift for tomorrow?". The answer is of course yes - I live on the sofa now. Here is a little rolled brim hat and another pair of baby Jane shoes. Quick and adorable!
Started on February 15. Finished February 21. Really fast when you are on bed rest. I changed up the cuffs on the sleeves and the bottom. I also only used 3 colors. The yarn is a dk called Mirasol Qina (alpaca & bamboo). I used over 400 yards for this 12 month sweater on size 6 needles. I also didn't put a button at the tip top of the neck because a) I only had 3 buttons like these and b) I hate stuff around my neck and figure the kid might be the same way.
Yep. Another one on the needles. This is my first bed rest project - which is proving to be a little harder than I thought because of the pattern being poorly written. I'll post my findings on it once I finish up.
Well I've been put on bed rest. Not full blown bed rest - I can work from home - but I'm suppose to keep walking and being up to a minimum. I'm okay, but the little girl is small. They are hoping this helps her grow.
The cats have already figured out I'm home. The lump under the blanket and knitting is our cat Moab!
Started on January 26th and finished today February 9th. Not a super long knit. I used Louisa Harding Kashmir DK. It took 446 yards and I used size 6 needles. I got these great little buttons at a local fabric shop.
Are you wondering how many baby sweaters I'm going to make? So am I!
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!
