grandma socks, hat for a baby, hat for MY baby.
i've been knitting away lately. better than studying for finals, by far.
i finished my first grandma sock:
and the baby hat, seen here with my kitty, Ozzie:pattern: garter stitch cloche from knitting for baby yarn: Bernat cottontots in little boy blue, about half a skein
a closer look:
the shaping was weird, like i said earlier, and i ended up working fewer reps to get the size i wanted, but i think it's adorable. i was surprised how much i like this yarn, it's so soft, and machine washable which is essential for babies. i'm going to make matching booties with the leftovers, although i'm not sure which pattern i'll use yet.
yesterday was mine and kellen's 4 year anniversary...so i whipped him up this beanie:no pattern, (i've made something like a million 2x2 ribbed hats before)
yarn:noro silk garden
i love this colorway (i dont have the # onhand, the label's in the car), and i think it looks really good on him. this was my first time working with silk, even though it's a blend...and i think it could become a really expensive addicition.
now i'm off to cast on my 2nd sock...then kellen and i are getting matching anniversary tattoos! pictures soon!
