Getting Back on Track

Posted in Blankets, Whatever Else, WIP's, yarn on January 16, 2009 by yarnoverheels

Well, it has been sometime since blogging.  Since, my last post my daughter has started Kindergarten. I been knitting quite a bit. I kinda lost some interest due to I guess feeling limited on what I could do using Word-press. 

So, I have lots of new pictures to be posting. I have started up socks. I have a new obsession with sock yarn. I just added the sock yarn blanket to my queue and also going to start a knitted Barn Raising Quilt. I been wanting for sometime to make blankets for my daughter. I started a Granny Square blanket in Tahki Cotton Classic that is now hibernating.  So after spending a ton on Tahki Cotton Classic. I will have to maybe beg my mother to please finish the squares and I will put the labor into sewing  it up and putting a border on it. I love Granny Squares but have came to the conclusion I am just not that great with crochet. I can knit so much faster and it is easier to me.

And Look At This!

Stash diving today produced another WIP that has been hibernating. This must be finished asap. I will update this post when I come across the pattern in my handy dandy pattern book.  I do know it was knitted with Brown Sheep Worsted. I love the color! But wait! Houston, It looks like we have a problem! Looks like the opening for the head is too small. Opps.. Most kids have big heads in proportion to their little bodies.

Dragon Scales Lace Oh My!

This is the Dragon Scales washcloth pattern in the Knitter’s Stash favorite patterns form America’s yarn shops. It is one of the eight patterns in the book by Theresa Gaffey. I am about 90% done with it.

I used the Louet Euroflax Original Linen. I do love that yarn in the really deep dark purple. Which I will have to find soon. Orange is not a favorite color of mine at all. Diane at the time when I purchased it had limited colors available and I really wanted to do this project.

Say Cheese Trixie

OK, I had to have her stop for a second to capture and savour the moment. She is thrilled with all the praise she is getting and is eating it all up. Ahh, I am so proud of her. She made my day. I hope she finds the joy in knitting that I have. I love you Trixie!

It’s late..I think she gets it!

This is Trixie in the process of learning to knit. It’s bed time and I am letting it go. I was able to walk away get the camera and take some pictures while she was so intently knitting. The needles are really too bog for her to handle. I think she is holding her own though!
