Wonderful Wallaby

Just had to post a not-so-perfect-pic of Alden's Wallaby. He's worn it for many cool summer evenings, but I never have the camera with me. I will be sure to have him model it for me this Fall. I really enjoyed making this. It is the largest (successful) sweater I have made to date. I made it to fit a size 4, so that he can get a lot of use out of it over the next couple years. I'll post more on this later...

Adventures in Lace

Branching Out was a really fun gift to make for my MIL, Sandy! It took lots of concentration, however, as lace patterns usually do. It knit up fairly quick, and took only one skein of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. It was wonderful practice and very satisfying to watch the beautiful "branches" unfold. Hope you like it, Mom!

Slouchy Hat and Fingerless Gloves!

It has been forever since my last posting! I finished Fetching last month and already wearing them everywhere. I added an extra cable over my long fingers. I do think that I still have to block one glove, as the top is not as straight as I would like it to be. The pattern was very fast and easy, so I will probably make another pair soon.
I just finished the Slouchy Copy Cat Hat. It is also very easy, I just hit a knitting slump and only knit on the weekends, if I had the time. Amber's visit inspired me to finally bind it off and wear it! Thanks, Aaaaaaay.
