This last week has been a whirlwind of knitting and sewing. I have been doing one of these in every bit of free time I have……. sometimes the creativity makes me crazy! Must keep sewing…….
It started with knitting up this hat for a friend…. Mr Three was kind enough to model it here….. (please excuse the peeled off wallpaper look behind him!)
Then my other friends welcomed their sweet baby girl to the world last Thursday and I have since been sewing and knitting and sewing!! They didn't know if baby was a girl or boy until her arrival….. so much fun! So I've been getting a little pile of goodies to send out…… finished up the last item today. The hat started it all….. (VERY loosely based on this pattern…… little gnome)
Knit in "Poppies" by Mosaic Moon (LOVE this yarn!!)
And with such a cute hat, doesn't a girl need an outfit to go with it?
And for those cold Wisconsin winters, a cute snuggly blanket would also be nice!!
The quilt is based on my original design but with flannel on one side to make it extra cozy!
It was like the book "If you give a mouse a Cookie"…… one idea kept inspiring the next!
And for my true WIP (work-in-progress), I started a sweater today based on the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts, one of my favorite books….. I'll share the progress on this next Wednesday because after sharing the above photos, my itsy bitsy beginning of the sweater is rather boring! And besides, I have a feeling this sweater will be a "WIP" for awhile…….
