Newborn Longies so tiny and sweet! A custom for Sara that will be gifting these to a little bean due in March.
The wool was hand dyed by fellow Etsian & Etsy Cloth Diaper Team member Little Monkey's Stitch n Spin a Worsted Merino in the color “Neptune” She has some really neat colors (yes I’ve picked up a few others) so be sure and check out her color work.
The Gap-Tastic Cowl is completed and will be in the mail tomorrow. This Shasta Daisy Knits bulky so squishy and soft it will be hard to let this one go. I may need to knit one for myself.
Ruhun Cowl/Headband a pattern by Kristiina V. I found on Ravelry
I used a wool acrylic blend in taupe, for a bit of cable practice
That was pretty easy so I decided to step it up a bit and tried this head band for my daughter Rachel. She lives in Indianapolis and seems to think below 0 temps deserve hand knits to keep her ears warm! (But, It also works great as a cowl.)
Anthropologie Inspired Braided Head wrap by Jen Geigley again found on Ravelry
I modified the pattern and omitted the button band, added 2 more “braids” and kitchner stitched it together.
Since that was really easy this afternoon I cast on this hat for Alix called
The hat is done!
I’ll have photos of it tomorrow when I try it on Alix.
For the life of me I don’t know why I was ever afraid to try cables!
It feels like a whole new knitting world has opened up. I know there will be a few disasters along the way but I’m really excited to challenge myself to more complex patterns
Stay warm out there
