A little blog about me, knitting, dogs, and my twisted little take on life in general.
Let the Baby Month Begin....
I mentioned it before but I have a new nephew and niece arriving soon, just in time for the holidays no less. As a knitter I've been pretty slack in getting things knit up for them and so with a little under a month and a half to go November will be all about baby knitting...a hat or two might slip in there for adults but for now I'm focused on the baby knits.
I finished my last smocked slouch yesterday evening and cast on for the first baby project. A wee little pullover for my niece. It's the Immie Tee by Carrie Bostick Hoge her website is here
The model is Carrie's daughter Immie and quite possibly is what makes this little sweater so adorable.
The lace panel is the Frost Flower and Carrie has written it out very clearly.
I'm not using a fingering weight but a dk pale pink cashmere on size 6 needles. I think it's going to be perfect.
Below is the finished Smocked Slouch by Jill Zilenski. This time I used Dream in Color Classy and it's super slouchy! I'm in love with my new winter hat.
