I am an unfinished work, and so are many of my projects. This blog is just an odd collection of things I make and do.

Sweater Updates

The Birthday Boy in his new sweater.  
It is a little big...room to grow!

He looks like he's not too sure about the bunny!

Little Brother decided he likes the bunny just fine!

The little puzzle was a big hit!

A Not-So-Boring Sweater

After I made a sweater for my grandson, I made a little book to go with it.  The pages are here, followed by some pictures of the sweater.



(Daddy said the boys had vests they wear to church with skulls on them!)

That's the end of the booklet.  Here are a few shots of the finished sweater...(keep in mind that I'm still pretty much a beginner...so it's not perfect, but it's sure fun!)

Detail of Design....which I may use in a lightweight sweater of my own someday because I think it's pretty.

Knitting Project Two--Washcloth

I finished this a while ago, and just now got around to taking pictures.

This was another good practice piece as it combines a variety of stitches.  I don't remember the link, but if you just search for "knitted washcloth pattern" it will come up with lots of options.

The eyelets were done with a combination of yarn-overs and then decreases done by knitting two together.  The middle parts are done with stockinette and reverse stockinette, if I remember right. 

You start at a corner, increasing each row until the middle, then decreasing.
