This week has been a whirlwind of kids, cloth, and fiber. Each project on the needles and in the sewing machine has had to take a backseat at some point during the week as some other project got some love and attention from yours truly. Here's a little glimpse of the needle work I've been playing with:
Here's the sweater that I've been working on for a while. You can read more about the pattern etc in this post, but I'm making some progress. I've never knit an adult sweater before and I'm pretty excited about the prospect of having something of this magnitude in my closet!!
This is a sweater I knit for my friend Kathleen's baby Waylon James (rock star name!). It is FINALLY getting it's honey bee buttons, though as you can see, I go one on and then had to move on to something else. A note, the pattern for this sweater can be found in the book Natural Knits for Babies and Moms, by Louisa Harding.
I've started knitting up some samples for a little knitting workshop I'm doing at the Mama's Make It Happen event. Admittedly, this is not a priority right now. Ask me again in a month as the event get closer and I haven't quite finished them (lol).
A new favorite project, this little piece will eventually be a sweater vest for Oliver. My intent is to finish this and post the pattern for February's Celebrate the Boy event here.
And last but not least, did you know that a gorgeous Merino scarf that you haven't woven ends in yet for no reason whatsoever, makes a GREAT pin cushion? No? Let me tell ya, awesome.
