Catching up and adding a LOT of new projects.  Here’s some that I actually remembered to take pics of (mostly on my cell phone, sorry)

Big Brother Sweater

So, here is the fabulous sweater!

I am so very pleased with this. We dyed the yarn together, in a rainbow, just like he wanted. Honestly, I ran out on the sleeves (thankfully, I was magic looping them two at a time). So, I used some of the colors leftover from the rainbow stripe pants to finish the sleeves. I think it came out looking even cuter than the original plan! Big Brother picked out the buttons. This whole thing was really customized to exactly what he wanted. He really loves it!

Girly Evie Pants and Young Einstein rambling

Got a pair of longies for Baby Girl lanolized. I’m already knitting a size M for her. She’s wearing the S/M size and it fits great, but she’s growing so quickly, I want to make sure I’m able to keep up. These are a little girlier than I normally go. I bought the yarn in a Purewool co-op. It’s 3 ply, dyed by them. I think it’s really pretty and girly.

In other news, I am really loving this Little Rascals pattern. I’m working on the Young Einstein cardigan. The E-book has a pullover as well. They all start the same way. The pattern is super well written AND, at the end, it has charts and tips for my very best friend, duplicate stitch! Soooo, I might have to be throwing some pockets on this bad boy to put embellishments on. There are options for 2 styles of pockets in the pattern. It really has a lot of customization available, collar, hood or neither, various pockets, different edging and cuffs. Totally worth the price! Here’s a sneak peek of how it’s going. Remember, this is the yarn that Big Brother and I dyed together. He wanted it to be rainbow-y and it definitely is!

For Pete’s sake

I’ll tell you, I would blog a lot more if I didn’t have to get pics from my camera to the computer to do it. There’s always a MILLION pics on my camera, of kids, of yarnie stuff, diapers I’m selling, all sorts of stuff. Then, I have to sort it all when I put it on the computer. So, I’m forever procrastinating that job and it causes me to procrastinate blogging. Excuses, excuses, I know.

Well, here’s this darling sweater. I did a little matching hat, too, just because I’m so nice. 🙂

The buttons aren’t on yet, as the mama will be adding them herself. I can’t wait to see what they look like!

I went on a dye binge weekend 2 weeks ago. Big Brother and I dyed some yarn that will become his cardigan. He picked the colors, helped me mix them and showed me where to pour them (with a little color blending guidance). It turned out beautifully! I can’t wait to make this into a super cute little sweater for my big boy.

I dyed up some other yarn that I’m knitting up right now. I’ll talk about that another day.

Oh, I’m now involved in an Etsy store, The Plum Line, with two good friends who are also very talented knitters (and 1 very talented dyer so far!). Very exciting stuff!

Last exciting thing for tonight, I just got a new pattern that I am super duper excited about! I’ll soon be knitting one up for the Etsy shop. I don’t want to divulge too much yet, but it is a themed hat, which I so super love, especially for the wee people.

Tons more stuff for baby

I’ve been on a tear, doing tons of baby stuff.

That kimono sweater I mentioned before

 I need to get better at photographing this stuff!

 

A super adorable cabled set! This is done on Malabrigo Chunky, soooo soooo soft!

And a better shot of just the hat

A teensy sweater. This is my first go at lace work. Not bad, I think.

The buttons are from my grandma’s button box. I feel so fortunate to have it. We sat and sorted everything out a while back. It’s so much fun to go through it all, checking out the neat old buttons, remembering my grandma.
