Small Things for this week's yarn along. This week I have been browsing through a couple of knitting books, Essential Baby by Debbie Bliss and Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders by Judith Durant. I actually chose my first sweater pattern that I am going to knit for Phoebe; the corssover top sweater in Essential Baby. I already bought the yarn and everything (so it's official) but I am going to wait a few weeks to get started. I am a little nervous as I have never knit a sweater (or anything that complicated) before. I also started reading The Backyard Homestead by Carleen Madigan and Stolen Harvest by Vandana Shiva. I will write up reviews on those when I have finished.
This week I started knitting a stuffed peacock with a friend of mine, but it isn't going so well as we are having a bit of trouble deciphering the pattern. So that project has been temporarily put on hold. I am also knitting some adorable baby booties, the pattern can be found for free here. I still have to tie in loose ends and add buttons to the first one, but so far they look really cute. However, I made the small size and am now kicking myself because I think they will probably fit P for about a week. Oh well.
And, can you see the hidden baby feet in my picture? They are just screaming for new booties!
And, last week I finally finished the Stella Pixie Hat (pattern from Vintage Baby Knits). I have been working on this for awhile, so it feels good to be done. Just in time for summer nonetheless! Anyways, it was hard to get a good shot of Phoebe actually wearing it, but I did my best.
Pin It Now!
