You're stuff is great! I'm totally inspired.

It turned out perfect. Well done!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Simple Hooded Cardigan on: January 29, 2008 11:04:55 AM
This was EASY. I highly recommend this pattern for that reason. You can whip one of these babies up in about 5 evenings. I modified the pattern a bit - the sleeves are stockinette with garter cuffs instead of all garter.





Pattern: Simple Hooded Cardigan (The pattern is free, but you need to sign up at the Lion Brand website.)
Yarn: Wool-Ease Chunky, about 3 skeins
Needles: 10.5

Here's a little something that took me, uh, forever:





and for a proud little man action shot:


I love it. It's a grandpa sweater for babies. The only shame is that it will only be worn for a little while Cry

Pattern: Knitty's Trellis - http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTtrellis.html
Yarn: Rowan All Season's Cotton (This stuff is fabu)
Needles: us 7

Holy cables.

I did not block it. Yet. I mean to, I just am enjoying wearing it and the 2-3 day loss is too much right now. I live in the South though, so it will get too warm to wear it any minute now and then I will block it to perfection ( or as perfect as it gets Grin

I think this would be an ideal first sweater - super simple shaping, easy knit purl combo for the pattern and chunky yarn all add up to beginner happiness, I think. A lot of people hate seaming, but with this gauge and stockinette at the edges the seaming was quite easy and so it is a good one for learning seaming too.

Thanks!

I love it! The buttons are absolutely perfect.

Thanks.
Jojo, that's a Wilton cupcake stand that I got at Michaels. They actually have quite a bit of fun cake stuff.

I made these cupcakes for my son's 1st birthday. I got the idea from the cover of a Wilton magazine, but it was inspiration only. I made the animals on top out of marzipan with royal icing eyes, the cakes are golden and the frosting is buttercream.

This little guy is speechless (and a little blurry) with excitement:



Here's the total package:





And a little closer:



The Birthday Boy approved:



Thanks for looking!

Just so everyone knows I am not a criminally bad mother, I did not give the baby soda. Seriously. I know it's next to the cake, but it was for the grown up guests. It looks BAD though, doesn't it?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Earflap Hat on: November 29, 2007 12:01:58 PM
This hat is from a baby knitting pattern book I got from the library.



I forget who wrote it, but it is called the Earflap Hat and, on a baby, is cuteness in its purest form. I found the pattern really easy, although I modified it so that I knitted in the flaps instead of sewing them on later. I love that it ties: this boy does not let stuff stay on his head, no matter what the weather!

Everybody's doing it, it's the Drops 103-1 Cardigan, here shown in Rowan Plaid:



I think it turned out pretty well. The stitch patterns show up better in real life. I think this is one of those patterns that everybody does b/c it is cute, easy and adaptable to so many different yarns. Love it! Also love the yarn!
