Project Collages

January 9th, 2013

I just realized that I haven’t made a collage of my F.O. for the past several years! Gee, that proves that I’ve been too busy with life in general. But, hey, as they say, “better late than never.” So, here are my F.O. collages for the years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. I hope to be busier this year, as far as knitting and crocheting goes…it’s ‘good medicine’ for me!

A Few Baby Gifts

January 6th, 2013

Lately I have been making baby shower gifts, and I have a few more to make! Is there a baby boom going on?! I have been pulling books, yarn and needles out for each of the projects, and my craft room is currently a mess! So, there were four baby gifts to make, and I have two down and two more to go. But first off, let me share a photo of the cute baby wearing the knitted set I made. He looks adorable in it.

Baby Gifts

The next gifts were for a “New Grandmothers” baby shower hosted by a co-worker. It was a very cute idea and I was told that one of the nursery color scheme was green and brown.

Snug Baby Sweater, Beanie & Gansey Booties

November 14th, 2012

I just finished this cute sweater and bootie set for a co-worker who is expecting a littly boy in 2 weeks. This is the first time I’ve ever used this yarn, and it is so soft and chunky! I love the way this sweater feels. I made the 6 month size and changed the pattern stitching along the two fronts that extend into the hood. The pattern stitch is #209 from “Vogue Knitting’s Stitchionary 1” book. I gave her the set today at work and she loved it!

A Free Pattern!

Thank you, Nik, for finding this free pattern by Annie Modesitt! I love it, and will put it on my project list for the Summer. I love the dropped shoulders and the sleeves. Beautiful!

    I've been knitting & crocheting many years, and it is great to see the rise in popularity. Basically,the loves of my life include: knitting, crocheting, being with my family and giving thanks to God for how He's blessed my life, but not necessarily in that order!
