Nothing New Here

Well, I'm still plugging away at the sock. (It's not that I don't like knitting socks, but I just keep thinking of all the other things I could be knitting!) The kids have had colds and I've been up a lot. All my knitting energy has been drained. Hopefully, I'll have at least one new project to report on in my next post. Since I don't have anything exciting to report I just thought I'd post a couple of pictures of FO that have been outgrown and are being packed away.

This is from Debbie Bliss "The Baby Knits Book: The Ultimate Collection of Knitwear Designs for Newborns to 3-Year-Olds" and done in Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine. I enjoy knitting with this yarn and LOVE the colors. I did this sweater (almost exact same colors) twice before for baby showers. (One was for Amelia's big brother, Leo. Now she'll get to use it as well.) Doug liked it so much he requested one for L. She did get to wear it some before she got too big.

This is Trellis from Knitty. I saw ChrisKnits post one quite a while ago that she had done and fell in love! I made a few changes and knit it in one piece to armholes (I think she did this as well as making a change to the cables... my mind is a bit fuzzy today.) L got a lot of use out of this one. I knit it in Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep and it turned out well. I also made one before this for a baby shower.

Well, I'm off to fix dinner, bathe children and (hopefully) work on the sock.

Hi Jenn, Pam sent me your blog address too! I wish I had a live knitting group, but I just have the blogs I read (like yours) on the internet. You are quite the prolific knitter! Love the baby sweaters!

Oh no! We must be twins. I did the DB design too. It's in the kids sweater file on my blog. I did it in a navy background.
I just love her designs!
