Baby Set A

Child’s Placket Sweater
Mary Jane booties
(no actual pattern for the hat, just a few rows of seed stitch and then stockinette) Oh and if ya’ll don’t already have a pompom maker, definitely give them a try. They make pompoms look so nice.

This was that project that took me forever. It really shouldn’t have. But I kept procrastinating. So when the baby shower was looming around,  I had to get my act together and finish the sweater, knit up the hat and baby booties in oh, say 3 days. lol. I’m super happy with the way the sweater turned out. My first sweater yay!! It’s now given me some courage to maybe think about knitting a sweater for myself.  We’ll see.

Spring Forward

I’ve finished these socks for awhile now. The Spring Forward pattern is simple and not so boring. Oh and if anyone is thinking of using Easter egg dye or cool aid, if you set the colors, they really don’t fade as you would think. I’m really hard on my socks putting them through the washer and dryer, so yeah, the colors really hold up.

New look, New knit?

Thought I’d change up the look of the site a bit. Maybe it’ll go better with my new adventurous self. ehh…who knows. Anywho, this is my first non-sock project that isn’t a scarf or hat and I’m super excited. My very good gal pal is expecting and I thought this was the perfect time to learn some new techniques and to get over my fear of actual garments. So here you have my almost finished Child’s Placket Sweater

Child's Placket Sweater

I couldn’t wrap my head around the neck part, so it’s gonna have to be fudged. I’m gonna try to do the top in the yellow so it’ll at least have some balance. I had many hair pulling moments with this project but after attaching the arms and kitchenering them I’m a-ok now. 🙂
