The Surprise is out

Well one of the things that I was working on last month was some baby knits. One of my close friends Alicia is pregnant with a little boy so I was quite busy making some stuff up for her and well since she has does read my blog I could not post anything about it, so here is what I was busy working on for her.

So I made some burp cloths.

I made the Parsley sweater from sublime in the sublime book using sublime yarn. Here is my project page, but the pattern isn’t shown on ravelry.

I also made the barley hat from tin can knits simple collection. It is a wonderful pattern that is totally free and great for beginners (the whole simple collection is great for beginners). I used knitpicks swish.

The last thing I made was these wonderful and simple little booties. I made the out of knitpicks stroll tweed and I am super happy with them. The pattern is called Baby Booties to Knit in the Portuguese Style and is also free.

I am so happy with how all of the projects turned out and my friend loved them!


It’s a mystery

It was truly a mystery. The color craving mystery shawl from Stephen West had me confused the whole time I was making it. As soon as I thought I had it figured out the next clue would come out and tell me I was wrong. Not until the last clue was my guess kind of right.  But overall I really enjoyed it, I liked the fact that I didn’t know what was coming next. It also gave me something to look forward to (I never looked at the spoiler thread until I was well into my clue and knew that there was nothing else that was going to happen in the clue besides what I was doing). It is definitely something that I would do again and well the shawl is something that I would have never thought to make for myself, but I love it!

I used knitpicks stroll tonal in thunderhead (grey) and springtime (green), the blue is Zitron Trekking (XXL). I like the yarn used, it isn’t my favorite by any means, but it gets the job done and is a decent price. You can see my project page here.
