Sittin' and Knittin'

Some projects I've been working on and just finished.


Pattern for dress is found in: 60 Quick Baby Knits.  I used 220 Superwash Cascade Yarn.  

A little spring dress for my nephew and his wife's soon to be born baby girl.  Side note:  My baby sis had her baby.  Remember the little green baby shoes I'd made and told her she needed to have a baby girl?  She had a baby boy..........  I forgive her.

Pattern for hat is found in:  Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders  

After you knit a project you get it wet and lay it out to dry.  This is called, blocking.  I placed this hat over one of my heater vents to dry.  One of The Native's came along, picked it up, and threw it saying, "Oh cool!  A Frisbee"!

The grass looks funky in this photo.  It is tons of white apple blossom petals that are covering the grass.

Pattern for scarf is found in:  Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders

A linen scarf for spring/summer.  The Native's say it looks like chain mail.........  They're so...... MALE!

  1. Look at you with yo bad seff - churning out the darling. All I've been knittin' is camels. You'd go mad, being me. This stuff is BEE-U-tiful. And I'm not going to church Sunday. Not unless a miracle cleans out my lungs and opens my ears back up. How're the babies? At least M isn't missing any of my lessons.

    1. We'll see about Sunday. Mr. M went back to school today. It was hard. He couldn't eat lunch but he made it. Mr. J is still up every two or three hours at night and uncomfortable. Depends on Mr. J if I'll make it or not.

      I don't know how you knit the same stuff over and over. I can't! I do one thing and want to move onto and explore the next!

  2. See? You found the silver lining in your recovery room time....and turns out that it looks a lot like a linen scarf in the nicest of silvery grays. Can you tell I love it? And I love the lilac bush, too!

    1. I looooove lilacs. They are one of my most favorite things about spring. That and Hyacinths. They smell divine.

      I'm thinking about doing another scarf but in shades of blue. What do you think? :D JK

  8. Wow, what a wonderful selection of knitting loveliness. The hat is especially gorgeous and such a great colour but then I love the scarf too - I have a real fondness for natural colours and that yarn works beautifully for that pattern. And the little spring dress is so sweet and it looks like you found the perfect buttons x

  9. Oh man, HOW did I miss this post??? LOOK at all of your projects all finished and GORGEOUS!!! They are all scrumptious. And the yarn! I have GOT to learn the knack of picking out yarn that will knit up beautifully. You have got that knack.

    The baby dress is extra, super-d-duper, delightful. So sweet.

    1. We have a fantastic yarn shop here in town. Quite lucky. I forget the stats on it but it is one of the oldest yarn shops in the US. Go figure! Here in little Provo, UT!!

  10. Are you SPINNING the yarn too? Wouldn't be surprised. My hobby is looking out my windows. Yours - major cool things which could easily become heirlooms if they don't wind up as Frisbees for the Natives.
