These are some of my finished projects...hope you like (forgive pic quality, my digi is really crappy)


This is both my first completed project and (obviously) my first sweater.  The upper chest, sleeve cuffs, and bottom are done in garter stitch and the rest is stockingette.


This is a close up of the upper chest area


This is a plain ol' garter stitch scarf that I made for my boyfriend out of homespun


This is a blanket I made for the birth of my son.  It was made in strips, then sewn together.  Then I picked up stitches around the outside for the border

This hat I made, first project in the round

So what do ya think?

Here's a little hat I just finished for my friend who's having a baby.  I should have made it bigger but I got impatient  and quit before it was long enough.  Oh well, I guess its only infant size.



Here's my 3 month son modeling it for everyone


I just got home from visiting my family in Austin.  While I was there, my mom told me to raid her yarn stash and take whatever I wanted.  I found this:

Its this beautiful Kid Mohair/Wool/Silk/Acrylic blend.  Main color dark green but one of the ply threads is a rainbow that keeps fading into the next color.  I loved it so much I could not wait to knit something with it, so I choose to do the airy scarf from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.







Here are some 1 hour baby booties that I finished today.  They're for my friends who are expecting a daughter in October.  I knit them with some Icelandic wool that I found in my mom's yarn stash

thanks for all the nice comments!!  I guess I should mention that my mom taught me to knit long ago, when I was like 8...i used to make dishcloths (that was it).  Then, when I found out i was going to have a baby I picked it back up again....but I've never done decreasing, in the round, or picking up stitches before these projects

I've been knitting for a few years and have yet to finish a sweater, I admire you!

Knitting in the round is awesome. No seams!

Cute baby!
