I have a few more knitting projects to share. Been doing loooooooots of knitting these days. I feel like that is where my mojo is at for the present. When I go sit in my paper crafting "studio" that's all that I really do - just sit. No inspiration whatsoever. Bah... I'm hoping that will change with the release of the newest CTMH Idea Book. Customers get it on Sept 1st, but consultants get it a month early! - (ps... let me know if you want to be a consultant! there's a great sign up special this month, and an even better one coming the middle of next month!)
Here's a cute little baby sweater I knit a few weeks back. It's made with knitpicks "comfy" yarn - which is a cotton/acrylic blend and is *sooooooo* soft. I like the crisscross neck (easy to pull over baby's head) and made this in a newborn size. The pattern is from the Mason Dixon knitting book (first one) and is knit all in one piece (then seams are sewn). I did alter the pattern slightly so that there was no ribbon dying the front closed.
Here's another sweater I just finished last week. After knitting up this sweater for fun, Sammie begged me to do one for her that actually fit. :) So I used the same pattern but modified it so it was larger. Then I used an alternating stripe for the sleeves. Too cute! And of course she loves it. She even wore it last week in 80 degree heat! LOL - silly kid. The yarn is cascade 220 super wash wool. Pattern from the snowflake sweater in Knitting for Baby with a few modifications.
This was Sam's "oh mommy, I love it soooooooo much" face.
