I know in my last post I said tomorrow and its been oohhhh a couple of days but I just couldn’t put the needles down for long enough to post. I’ve got a seriously cute finished object to show you all.
Pattern: One piece baby kimono from Mason Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Bernat handicrafter cotton in ecru
Needles: 4mm straights
Start Date: January 21st 2008
Finish Date: January 27th 2008
I thought this kimono needed a little jazzing up so I embroidered a little owl in the corner with some wool and then added the backstitching down the diagonals to finish it off. I’m very happy with how this turned out. This was a gift for my cousin who is due to have her second baby around my birthday but we really don’t think she’s going to go that long so I thought I better whip something up just in case. Well…… I showed it to Moose and the reaction I got was ” YOU CAN’T GIVE THAT AWAY!!! CAN’T YOU JUST SEE OUR KIDS RUNNING AROUND IN THAT!!!” Wow wasn’t expecting that, so I guess its getting tucked away with the moss stitch hoodie for a mooselet down the road.
Of course I couldn’t NOT make matching booties so I whipped up this:
Pattern: Fleegle’s seamless Saartje Booties
Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in Ecru
Needles: 2.75mm circs 2 sets
Start Date: January 27th 08
Finish Date: January 28th 08
I don’t have buttons for these yet, but Mum, keeper of all buttons, has a huge stash that I’m going to be diving into on the weekend, hoping to find the perfect match. Love this no seaming version, just sew in the ends!!!
One last thing before I go, there’s a new knit/blogger in our world. She’s super sweet and if you all have a second to pop on over to her blog and say hello I know she’d love it. She’s got great taste in patterns and yarn 😉 Check Julierose out!
