Well, April is my month, purple is my favorite color, and i believe i have some paisley fabric somewhere. Woohoo!

My sister sent me a picture of my nephew in his Mickey Mouse hat. Like i figured, the ears do not stay up, but it's maybe even more adorable because of it.
Look at his little face. Hahaha!

I made a few green things this month...
A shamrock hat for my nephew, Liam (whom i finally got to meet last night!). A shamrock for me. A sweatband and wristers for my brother because he was in a quidditch tournament.

Remember the fox hat i posted last time? My friend never did send me her address, and my awkwardness wouldn't allow me to re-ask... Then, a couple days ago, i saw a photo of her son wearing a fox hat almost identical to the one i had made. So now i have a baby fox hat.

I also made a Mickey Mouse hat, but i'm not sure the ears are sturdy enough to stand up on their own. I sent it to my sister to try it on my nephew, so we'll see what happens when it gets there.

Haha! I love the Dalek hoop!

I finished a pair of socks using Bowties Are Cool by Mandie Harrington.

They should be dry by now. Can't wait to get them on my feet! Smiley

Your fabric hat looks so fun, Kook!

I haven't taken photos of everything i've been making, but here are a few.

A bunch of baby hats.

This is for a friend's new baby, but i haven't gotten her address yet, so i have no photos of them on him.

I make hats for my nephew each month. This is his 5-month hat for March.

Got this yarn in a swap with Shannin last year.

I made two of these cowls. One for a friend and then one for me.

Some felt goodies for luckdragon, minus one mustache i didn't take a picture of.

Had to buy the snaps for the needlebook, but maybe they will help me use up more of my felt now.

My niece was invited to a birthday party. I found out i would be taking her the night before, and she had no present. Her friend's favorite color is purple. Smart girl.

These two are wips.
I thought the greens went well together in the store, when i bought them a long time ago... but all done up, i'm not so sure. Working on incorporating other colors.

This one so far is all stash yarn. But i had less of each color than i thought. Debating whether to buy more of each color or add other colors (which i don't really want to).

After years of trying to conceive and having no luck... my brother and sister-in-law finally had a baby boy thanks to embryo adoption. He's a preemie. He was born 8 days ago, 15 3/4" long, and weighing 3 pounds. I had some leftover yarn from when my other nephew was born, and i made him this tiny security blanket. It's on his bed in the NICU.

And after the NICU nurses saw his blanket, they all told my brother how much they love it, and that i should make them for all the NICU babies.
I've been buying yarn for those because i want them to have bright and cheerful and baby soft starghans, but for this one, i used some rainbow-y stuff from stash.

Last but not least... some of you from last year might remember i got a huge bag of yarn from my cousin. Her mom was going to make her a blanket when she was a baby, but she never did and decided to give her the yarn last year instead... and she gave it to me. Well, she and her husband are also trying to have a baby. They're trying IVF, again, and i'm just hoping and praying it works this time. I really want them to have this baby blanket i'm making from her yarn.

I think i might keep it like this, but i might do a couple more rows. I haven't decided. A lot of the colors are running out.

Whew. Did anybody get through all of that?

You all know how wonderful and amazing luckdragon is, so allow me to jump right in.

First, as an extra, she sent along 6 balls of this beautiful silk blend yarn from her stash.

If i'd realized the photo was blurry, i would have taken another...

Fabric bowl made with purple and green fabrics (purple and green go so well together, don't they?).

I've wanted one for so long, you don't even know how happy this makes me.

Doctor Who inspired travel wallet with a matching strap or keychain.

It's perfect. It's art. It's got the TARDIS and clouds and swirls and stars... i'm in love.

Knitting project messenger bag with matching pouch.

Pockets and stripes and polka dots. I love all the blues and greens and browns.

Thank you so, so much. This is all so perfect.

I wanted to make something for a friend, who recently went to cold, cold Chicago. Found these colors in my stash, and man do they go well together.


This is actually the second one i made. After i sent hers off, i had to make one for myself.

I make hats for my nephew's monthly pictures. Here's his 5-month/March hat. My favorite so far.

28  Painted Onesies in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by bananaleg on: February 18, 2013 10:49:09 PM
I wasn't sure where to post these, but i guess this place is as good any...? If it would fit better elsewhere, please let me know.

My sister asks me to paint onesies for my nephew for major holidays. You know, "my 1st Christmas", "my first New Year"... A few days before Valentine's Day, she asked for a Valentine onesie. So i got a 5-pack, and here's what i came up with.

Not my greatest penmanship, but it had to do.

Text to my sister: I'm going to make a "kiss me I'm Irish" one unless you have a better idea.
My sister: But he's not Irish.
(Actually, we are part Irish.)

I probably should have made an Easter one before skipping to April, but i really, really wanted to make a rainy one. April is my favorite.

Aw, aren't they cute together?
This is my other favorite. Nothing to do with holidays or months, just Star Wars. My brother-in-law is a Star Wars fan. My nephew is named Luke. I tend to call him Wukie because i sing to him a lot... And wookiee is spelled with 2 e's, so... Wukiee. Clever, eh?

Your blanket is looking great, Trekky!

I'm working on a hat for my uncle. He asked if i could make it like a hat he already has, which is one of those double layer ribbed hats. He's a hunter and works on the docks, and I'm assuming he'll be folding the brim up. So now I'm trying to decide if i should keep going with the ribbing (i don't know if the ribbing might make it too bulky), or if i should rip that out and make the whole thing stockinette...

Also working on this hooded cowl sort of thing. I've ripped the hood out and started over several times. Hope I've gotten it right this time.

Loving the hats.

After seeing the Christmas special, i fell in love with a scarf the Doctor was wearing. Thanks to some tumblr people helping me find high quality screenshots, I'm fairly certain I've figured it out.
What do you think?
