Cupcake Mitts

After seeing these and getting the pattern. I wanted to include these on my Wednesday review. I know I usually talk about yarn. I could not resist doing this pattern today and it does tie in with yarn. I had to get this pattern after seeing these on Ravelry. I think they are so cute. Don’t you? They look like a lot of fun to make. The beautiful yarn is Nashua Julia. It is a blend of wool, alpaca and mohair. The colors are to dye for! The softness of the yarn makes it a pure pleasure to knit with and wear. I will be starting my children’s version of the Cupcake Mitts today. There is an additional post about the children’s pattern right below this one. I will blog about my process soon 🙂

I had never purchased from Etsy and wanted to tell everyone how easy and nice it was compared to using ebay. This was my first purchase from Etsy. I will certainly go back to shop for more. Karen, I hope you keep writing cute patterns. You’re so talented. If you have to have these too you can purchase the pattern from  on Etsy. I also have included her link to the right in my Blogroll!  Psst… Tell her I sent you! Enjoy 🙂

Bootie 2 Ya!

Well, they are coming along. Here is my progress on bootie number 2. 80% of the 2nd bootie was knitted at gymnastics and taekwondo tonight. It is such an easy pattern to memorize while knitting. I was a little nervous as I was knitting the first one. I had no physical picture to refer to while knitting. So, I had to go to Ravelry to look at finished ones. I just said to myself, do what the pattern says. Trust it .. So it made better sense when I started the short rows there the toe of the bootie. I hope they are kick proof! The are cute. I may do some to donate to Stitches From The Heart. However, my charity knitting is kinda on hold. I finished one hat. I planned on finishing 5. Life has gotten in the way of my plans once again. My sisters baby shower is on the 9th of February. So…Her hand knits have taken a priority. We think her baby will be here early. It is her 4th one and all the others were early. I hope she doesn’t cough or sneeze when she is labor on the way to the hospital this time.. She has very quick and easy deliveries.. I am praying she does not have the baby on the side of the road in the car. Well, she wouldn’t be the first lady it has happened to. Lucky her.

How Cute! Booties!

This is the first bootie completed. I do get 2nd sock syndrome. I have to tell you though I have casted on right away for the 2nd one. The eyelets you notice in the bootie are waiting for a pretty ribbon. These booties were fun and fast to knit. It took my awhile to finish it not because of being hard. It was that I got involved in listing stash on Ravelry, daughters schedule and our move. I can’t wait to give these to my sister at her baby shower. The booties are a great stash buster. These again are knit in Cascade Fixation yarn. I’m sure you could use just about anything you wanted permitting you use judgement to get the size you need. The pattern is a FREE pattern for Christine’s Stay On Baby Booties. I originally found it through Ravelry looking at the baby booties that were completed. The link is located on my side bar if your interested.

Christine’s Stay on Baby Booties

Christine’s Stay on Baby Booties

I found this pattern on Ravelry. If any of you have made these. I am only as you can see getting ready to begin the 2 group of knitting in the round. The sides and front of the foot seem like they will be kinda high. So, I am getting closer to the point where you have to do the short rows for the shaping. These are being knitted on a size 4 needle. I used size 1 dpn’s on the first try and they were way, way too small. So, It is now looking like a 4 might be way , way too large.. If you are interested in this pattern you can use the link in my blogroll. It is a free pattern. I love the little story they tell about it.

The Fixie Hat

Another Hat! ummm done! This hat is modeled by my daughter’s baby doll Amazing McKayla. It is for my sister’s new baby girl when she gets here . It is a Larissa Brown Pattern. Which is also a free pattern on her blog The Stitch Marker. The link is provided in my blog roll as The Stitch Marker or Larissa Brown.  Please check her out. Her patterns are so cute. She also has a book coming out soon in the spring. Looks like a must have. Anyways the hat was fun and easy to knit! Very cute baby hat. Lots of options in knitting on this hat. You could add stripes or anything thing else you’s like. I wanted a fast knit so I kept it very basic. Enjoy!
