More Baby Knitting

Here’s another pair of booties.  They match the blanket that I posted earlier.  These booties will have a light green ribbon to tie them closed.

Morning sickness is rearing it’s ugly head and is keeping me moving much slower than I’m used to.  That paired with the Achilles tendinitis that is keeping off of my feet and all I have to do is knit. 

My most worked on project is a Pi shawl that I’m making for myself.  Maybe I’ll get some pics of that today.

I finished this small pi shawl a few weeks ago, and just got pictures taken of it.  The yarn is handspun by me.  The colorway is Rosebud from the Spunky Eclectic fiber club.

This is far too small to be a shawl, but it would make a great baby blanket.  Especially for one born in say July.  Such a baby would need a lightweight blanket to keep the chill off.

I really liked the pattern, it was easy and fun.  It of coarse come again from EZ’s knitting almanac.  I’m certain that I’ll make the pi shawl again.  Next time big enough to be worn by me. 

Oh and the reason I stopped short on this one was that I was working with size 2 needles.  I just couldn’t bring myself to increase up again there would have been nearly 1,000 stitches on a row.  I’ll surely use the suggested size 6 needles on the next go around.

Baby February

I’ve nearly completed the Baby February Sweater out of EZ’s Knitting Almanac.  If you are a knitter, and don’t have this book, go buy it.  It’s the best eight bucks you’ll spend.

The sweater is made from Elsebeth Lavold’s Silky Wool.  I’m in deep adoration of this yarn.  One day, I’ll make something for myself out of it.  But for now, baby garments are on my mind.  I’ve got my heart set on acorn buttons for the sweater.  I’ll need three about a half an inch or smaller, so if you see any please let me know.

The booties are in the same yarn and are halfway done.  The free pattern is easy and cute and I’ve committed it to memory, so I can work on these cuties or more like them wherever I am.
