More FO's

I finished a cute little vest for Clay. It is knit in Wollmeise Molly in Gianduia colorway. The pattern is Ring Bearer's Vest. Notice the cute little own at the bottom. I hope he wears it for Thanksgiving.

I also made some little slippers for Ashtyn. I think slippers is her favorite thing that I knit for her. These are made from Miss Babs Yowza in Frog Belly colorway. The pattern is Sellwood from the patternbook, Shibui Socks, with many, many modifications.

Ashtyn also wanted some mittens. She picked out the color - Yarntini Limoncello. For some reason, I do not enjoy knitting mittens. You would think that I would because I like knitting socks so much, but, no, not mittens.

This little set is for Baby Gryffin. It is a hat and socks in Lorna's Laces sportweight in Jeans colorway. I'll probably give most of this stuff as Christmas gifts.

Hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving. Happy knitting.

A Few FO's

I have a few finished objects to show from the last week and a half. First up is a little hat made of Wollmeise. The pattern is The Hat Besserud, knit on 2.75 mm needles. Colors used are Vroni, Spina de Pesci, Wasabi and a red-orange from The Loopy Ewe Sock Club last year that I can't remember the name of. I casted on 120 stitches (instead of 140) to accommodate the head of an almost 3 year old. It fits my great-nephew perfect. And my stranded knitting is coming along very nicely, if I do say so myself.

My next project is a simple Diagonal Baby Blanket in Numma Numma TexasToasty in Ruby Red colorway. This was knit on a size 7 needle. I just love the squishy-ness of the yarn, and the garter stitch pattern makes it extra squishy. This is going to a family friend's new baby.

I was excited to use Knitterly Things -Vesper Sock - from the Summer Sock Club. Colorway is Summer Harvest. I did a plain stockinette pattern to show off the stripey-ness, knit on 2.25 mm needles. I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn and love the colors.

And another Wollmeise product is off the needles . . . No-Purl Monkeys in WM twin, Skandal um Rosi on 2.25 mm needles. These babies are mine.
I have no socks on the needles right now. I never have no socks on needles. I am waiting for the postman to arrive any minute with my Loopy sock kit to see if I want to use it before I decide to cast something else on. It's not like I don't already have a couple of things, ok, numerous things, in the works. But I need socks on the needles. It's just me.

Have a great week.
