My Last F.O. for 2007!

Charlie for Sale

The Charlie pattern is now available for sale on my blog. It is available in sizes 32, 38, 44, and 50 (these sizes were dictated by the diamond pattern repeats). It is beautiful as either a layering piece for the colder months, or a tank in the summer.

Taupe Ribbed Baby Jacket

Here is a really cute and simple baby jacket pattern that would look great on a boy or a girl! It is a Debbie Bliss pattern that you can get FREE from the link on my blog! I completed this one for my baby boy due in March for Fall 2008 in 6-9 months. Check out my blog for more details.

Hello All..and a quickie introduction

I live in Durham, NC with my hubby, teenage daughter and chocolate Lab. I have been knitting for about 4-5 years but still consider myself a beginner. I knit to relax, not stress myself out--so if there is too much Math involved, it ain't happenin' here. I like to knit projects for the home and a few simple things for the family. I am trying to collect enough of one of my favorite yarns, GGH Esprit (in various colors), to make a huge blanket before my daughter goes off college in 2 years. We shall see.

Here is a pic of my DD wearing the scarf that I just finished as a present for my sister. The yarn is Misti Alpaca which feels like buttah! I added flat beads as a fringe.

It's a Beanie........Baby!

My cousin requested a hat that didn't cover her ears, but fit snugly but not squeeze to match her winter coat. She was delighted with the outcome. Hopefully my other projects will come out this easily. You can check them out here.

I knit a sweater!!!

It's my first sweater ever! I'm so excited! the finished pic isn't that great, so I'm putting the closeup from before I added the sleeves so you can see the pattern. It's supposed to be the my cherie amour sweater from knitty, but I did this funky thing with my yo's so that the holes weren't as big. It's double stranded and super warm too. :D I'm still kinda in shock that I actually knitted a sweater!!!

Razor Shell Neckwarmer

I have tried on several occasions to make neckwarmers from patterns online with no success. I have some kinda block or something. So I just winged it.
