Some may call it an obsession, but I call it a healthy hobby. I have been knitting like mad lately. Mad, I tell you. I've had several custom orders, a few test knits to do, never mind the list of things I want to make for my own little bump within. I don't have pictures of them all, but to prove my time is well spent, here's a few of the projects I've been working on:
ZoZo Pixie Cables, and I'm in love. What a great way to bust some stash, and a perfect baby gift to boot. For those wanting to make it, I would suggest using a size or two smaller needle for the first CC band, because it splays a little. Still, very cute!
Morpheus, and it's so cute. I've done two of the designer's patterns, and love them. However, I've found they run pretty small, so if in doubt, size up. Also, on this one, I only did the mesh pattern on the front of the sweater, not the back, as the pattern instructs. I love the colours.
Pinafore is one I've made before, and a great stash buster. The pattern is only for 0-3 months, but I just size it up by using a bigger hook and thicker yarn. Isn't Marigold a sweetheart. She melts me.
headband pattern out there. A great way to use the end of a skein after a project. The purple flower is this one, and the yellow flower is this one.
little shrug is so beautiful. The yarn is a silk blend, and when the lace is stretched out it is just gorgeous. My intention, if I have a boy, is to give away all the girl things I've knit, but I might have to hold onto this one for future children. Love.
So, if you wonder why I'm mum, it's because I've been knitting. All. Day. Long. If you're on Ravelry, check out my other FOs here.
And, for those here looking at patterns, I've got two (or three) great ones coming in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
