Time to catch up

Ok so here is what I'be been knitting but unable to blog about since the boy and the puppy have kept me away from the pc:
1. Swaddling Blanket http://www.3gcs.com/adcock/knittingmain.htm
scroll down for info.
Yarn: TLC cotton Plus 3 skein
Needles: Denise 8's
I LOVE this pattern! There is even a slot for the car seat buckel in the back! Wish I had this when Jake was a baby.





2. Matching 5 hr baby sweater and coordinating Miss Dashwood hat http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTmissdashwood.html
Yarn: TLC Cotton Plus (good stuff!)

3. a little something for the big sister! A cape (modeled by Grace) Kind of based on this pattern http://www.knitlist.com/2003/minishawl.htm but adapted for smaller person and bigger yarn.
Yarn: Jiffy, 2 skein,
Needles, ?? sorry, I didn't write that down.




4. Felted clogs (Fiber Trends Pattern) for DH. a second pair in Steelers colors.
Lamb's Pride wool.
No the holes did not work as well as I had hoped. I even
test swatched! Bleh. Oh well, just not as much "venting" as he had hoped.



5-6. crocheted Hippie Hemp bracelet and Messenger Cell bag. My own design. I wrote and gave the pattern to Laura at Technicolor Sheep for the kids knit & crochet class








7. Petal bib from One Skein.
Yarn Reynolds Saucy (cotton)
Needles Denise 5's
Oh and 2 swatches for the shop





This blog is brought to you today by DH who is (thank God) home on vacation for a week. Maybe I'll get other stuff caught up!

Wow, so I shouldn't bitch about you not blogging, because at least you've been knitting! I must blog to post the dozen skeins of yarn I've spun up for Yarn Rescue, and the progress I've FINALLY made on Pea Pod (I've got the body done and 1 arm about half done!) Everything looks great! I wish I had time to knit that swaddler, but the shower is July 9 and since we're leaving for Maine that day I have to mail the gifts so she can open them that day.
