Knitting Update

Let's see.. what has been added to the FO pile since my last post??? Camille's Birthday Hat is finished and will be gifted on Sunday. Lainey is modeling it below. She'd sit while I took the picture and then run over to look at it.

I'm working on Kate's Reid and have almost finished the 2nd front. It doesn't look like much now, but I'm hoping it fits after blocking. I've heard that the next too sizes are huge and Kate isn't too much bigger than Lainey. We also found out that Kate is going to have a little brother and little sister in December/January! Anyone have any cute baby sweaters to suggest that would look good together in pictures?? I think I see a pair of these in their future! Chris has come up with a cute sweater, but it will be a while before these will fit the twins.

I'm starting a quick February sweater for my friend Kerry who is due November 1. And I also need to get a sweater together to donate to Hayden's preschool silent auction. I'm thinking something machine washable. It may speak more to the parents there.

It's quiet here and the dishwasher is full, so off to start it and sit to knit!

Those little baby sweaters are adorable!

I have a pattern for a baby hoodie with options for a boy or a girl. The pattern uses a waffle stitch design, but I've subbed other designs from stitch books in it before. The pattern is a take on EZ's seamless raglan, so it's a breeze to make! Let me know if you are interested.

I just love that hat pattern! (will have to get myself a copy of the book). I added the festival stash to my blog...maybe I'll get more handspun on it today.

Girl, you need to get on bloglines so I don't miss your updates! So much knitting getting done there. The February sweater is the same as the Gull Wing Lace sweater in Vogue's American Collection, just changed the name. I made it for my Younger when she was younger. I love that sweater. I made it once more and must make it again!!
