I'm in heaven. I'm taking a class that doesn't pile on the homework, so I actually have time to knit instead of write papers! Life is good.
I'm making baby clothes for my brother and sis-in-law's yet-to-be and I made a cute little pair of socks using this pattern.
Two Color Newborn Socks
I made a few modifications. I removed the little knit chain around the ankle and I left the toe in the main color- I wasn't sure if I'd have enough yarn..lol. I didn't make them for newborns...I was at the baby shower- they're more than good on the newborn stuff. However, since the baby will be June, it will be cold December by the time he/she's 6 mos. so that's the size I'm aiming for.
I'll post a pic in my slideshow asap.
Oh, and I FOUND a copy of the pattern for those cute little booties, but I still don't know that author..argh.
This blog is mainly to document my journey in Work: Knitting, Crochet and learning to do things such as Tatting, Netting, Drawn Thread Work and Sewing. Plus anything cool I find along the way :)
Lately, I have become really interested in 19th century fashion! But I also have a huge interest in expanding my skills with the goal that eventually, I will be able to make my clothes. I love to wear Salwar Kameez, but I want to be able to design and make my own, especially outfits in fabrics that are suited to colder weather since I live in upstate NY!
