Adding more little things to the house.

First, a February Baby Sweater. I knit this with Wollmeise 80/20 in Lila Ludmilla.  The yarn felt a lot like cotton string when I was knitting it, but it seems to have softened greatly with washing.  I really love the way it turned out.

Then a little baby hat appeared out of nowhere. (Seriously, I cast on something to take with me to the second part of the hat class I was teaching, and by the time I got home it was ready for the decreases.)

And here are some little baby socks from a few weeks ago. It’s my own pattern, and I think I’ll work up a mini-collection to offer as a pattern set.

Finally, a not so little thing. Meet the Button Up Hat. The pattern is available for purchase.

I meant to publish this on 11/27, but I guess I never hit the button.  Oh well…

Meet Link:
Link Outside

“A beguiling blend of visual interest and ease of knitting, Link features matched cables and an easy, in-the-round construction. The almost seamless tunic can be layered over a light shirt, or worn alone, as the yarn is simply scrumptious. It is sized to be close fitting, so be sure to choose the next size up if you want a roomier fit.” It’s available in sizes 6 months, 12m, 18m, 2, 4, 6.”

Purchase through Three Irish Girls.  Favorite, queue, or comment on Ravelry.

My original idea pretty closely matches the finished product, but as always, there seem to be a few differences between my brain and the finished product.  I still want to make something that’s more in line with my original vision, but I couldn’t be more happy with how the sweater turned out.  I’m especially pleased with the notched neckline, since H has a large head and I hate stretching sweaters over his noggin.

Long time, no patterns. Never fear- here’s a new sock pattern perfect for summer knitting.

Sometimes I just can’t make up my mind about what I feel like knitting. For this pair of socks I couldn’t decide if I wanted the pattern to continue down the instep, or have a stockinette foot. So, I made up my mind to do both. The Starlight sock has a full stockinette foot, while the Starbright sock has a patterned instep.

Thanks for your support!

There are few things more intimate than handcrafting something for someone you love.  After my husband took us to see one of our favorite bands, I knew I had to come up with something to show him how much it meant to me.  The lyrics, “Palms full of mystery, fingers of magic,
greetings so glorious, partings so tragic,” spoke to me.   So, I came up with two pairs of matching, but not kitschy, socks.  The name comes from the song that inspired me to create something beautiful.

This swirling slip-stitch pattern, designed to work with hand-painted yarns, creates lots of visual interest all by itself.  Dropped yarn over’s give length to the slipped stitches so the pattern doesn’t pull in.  The chart may seem daunting, but the pattern is easy to knit and memorize.
