This post is super late because I was so remiss on taking pictures, I know a lot of people love that part, I loath that part…I’m terrible at it!
There’s been some knitting and sewing ’round these parts lately….I’ve still got lots on the to-do list though! I like it that way!
I finished these baby slippers a while back, just never bothered to take a picture of them. I really just did them to see how the pattern worked out. I’ve got tons of sock yarn leftovers so these would be perfect. Of course, I knit a girly pair and everyone is having boys lately!
Pattern: Magic Slippers
Yarn: Sock yarn leftovers – love these colors
Made For: The next baby girl I know to be born!
Bubby Girl got a new toy as well – this super soft and snuggly sheep. Her name is Mary (get it?!) The best part about this, it was from leftovers as well – super cute and quick and used up leftovers, my kind of project!!
Pattern: Lamb from Itty Bitty Toys This book is full of awesome patterns! I can’t wait to make more!
Yarn: Leftovers of Berroco Plush and Sublime Organic Cotton DK – I doubled the Organic Cotton throughout
Made for: Bubby Girl
As much as I dreaded it, I took my Colorful Sock on the road to VT….it was going to be about 10 hours, so I needed some knitting. Can you believe I never knit a stitch on the way up!? Going North from MD is not fun. Tons of tolls, I’m talking probably $30 on the way up and pretty close on the way back! Ugh! I don’t even like turnpikes! Then detouring around the George Washington Bridge in NY – best thing we ever did, only added about 15 minutes to the trip, if that, and absolutely NO traffic. No trucks, tractor trailers, and all that craziness trying to get on the dumb bridge! Loved it!
But while we were there, I got lots of knitting done – and ended up finishing one of the socks…now if I could just go back on vacation and finish the other one! Ha! This is the perfect pattern for this very highly colored yarn. Love it! And this pattern lends to very thick, warm socks, which is nice too! Not a fan of the heel, but I followed the pattern because who wants to deviate while on vacation – definitely not me! Look for the second one to be finished sometime before Christmas!
