I know that I was going to post over the weekend to prove that I still do knit but then life got in the way…..so I had some time today to actually get things done and wanted to post while I had a chance. I have some exciting news my lys has agreed to sell my handpainted yarns and I have sold all but 3 out of 8 that I gave her!! I will be dying some more this week and I will post some pictures before I hand them over to her 🙂
On with the knitting!
I have been a bad Aunt I still have not finished taterbugs baby blanket in fact I frogged it because I didn’t like the way it was turning out so I am starting that over 🙂 But I have made her a little hat
I have enough of this yarn left to make her some booties I can’t remember what yarn I used I lost the ball band but I know that it is made from alpaca, silk, wool it is so soft!! I have also started a sweater for her using baby bamboo from sirdir I am really liking the way it knits up and how soft it is.
the pattern I am using is from Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino it’s the cabled hoodie so cute I can’t wait to get it done!
I made myself a new beenie out of tilly thomas rock star yarn I love this yarn it’s very soft
I have made a couple other hats that I can’t find at the moment, I made them from Manos del Uraguay love that yarn!! I have started a sweater out of Colinette mohair and the ribbon can’t remember what it is called but it’s nice to work with
I am almost finished with my hogwarts sock swap 2 socks I just have the cuff to go and then I can get them out. For my ISE 5 pal I have started and restarted and restarted one more time and then gave up with the yarn and decided on something else so I ditched the pure silk and mohair and went for the Noro silk garden and I was looking through some pattern books for stitch’s and in my barbara walker book I found the perfect lace stitch pattern so I decided to use it just make it a little different so I don’t have much done yet but here it is
close up of the pattern starting
you can’t really tell yet but it will be cool!
So I think that is about if for now I won’t be on for a few days tomorrow is my 30th birthday so I will be out and about for a couple of days!! Happy knitting!!
