for knitters, this means finished objects. some knitters make only socks, or only lace, and some stick to simple scarves or hats. i don’t really fit into any of these categories. i like to make things with a pattern since i get bored easily. most of the stuff I make is for gifts, so I tend to knit whatever i think that particular person will like. and being in my late 20s, i have many friends increasing the size of their family – so i’ve been knitting a lot of baby stuff – which i enjoy, since everything is really cute, soft and small, and sometimes i even think, ‘maybe i should stash this for my future child.’
most of the links below are to the ravelry site where you can print/buy/view the pattern – i believe you have to be a member to access these. i will try to add links to weird words for the non-knitters who may be reading this.
below is a cardigan i made for one of my bffs who is having a little girl any day now.
and i made these for her most deserving mother:
i started the socks this last winter while living aboard our boat in the Caribbean. i started them on a bamboo circular using the magic loop method. it is so humid and sweaty there that wood needles tend to be sticky, so one broke. the Caribbean is very limited in knitting needle stock (i can’t imagine why?) so i waited until i returned to the states and finally finished them out at ‘degnarly’ – our friends remote cabin.
I made this baby poncho for a friend of mine who had a girl this summer. His last name is Luck.
since i have been totally procrastinating on buku’s sweater – and NO i’m not afraid of the ‘boyfriend sweater’ curse – i crocheted and felted him some loafer slippers. i have yet to make myself a pair.
and below is another baby poncho. i just found out today that they want to feature it on the pattern page on ravelry. Trust me, it’s not because of the poncho ( the link is for the pattern on the lion brand yarn page, not the ravelry link), it’s because my cousins daughter is the cutest baby on the planet!
that’s all for now. i have many more that i want to share, but this is all the blogging i can handle for today.
