That's so cool Lady Llanalla!  I hope my friend can pass these things along as well.  That's what every knitter hopes, right?  Thanks for the compliments also!  I loved this pattern so much that I had to make one for my daughter; I changed the pattern a bit to accommodate a bulkier yarn, Sensations Dolcetto in pale green, and while the sweater is very soft and squishy it's rather loose and was difficult to make up.  I do like how it turned out though, even if the edges are a bit wobbly:

As a new member of Ravelry, I've been crawling all over the community looking for new patterns.  Here are two that I adore, made up using James C. Brett's Marble yarn for a friend's baby's Christmas gift:

That looks great!  I love baby clothes in neutral colors, too; I just had a baby girl at the end of August, and sometimes I feel like I'll go blind looking at her in all her pale pink glory, lol!  Great job!!!

Thanks!   Smiley
The blanket is about 2.5 feet in diameter, with the ruffle being only about an inch or inch and a half at most (it's hard to measure that part).  I was so happy to use up the rest of a Pound of Love that my sweet, sweet husband bought about 3 years ago, lol.

My take on the super versatile, stash-busting pinwheel blanket!
I added a ruffled edge like bluesmom, without the picot edging, and I really like the result.  It's simple, washable, and pretty thick since I used 2 strands held tog for both the pink and green parts.

(The photos are a little dark, as it's all rainy here, but the colors are basically the same.)

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt Birthday Cake! on: October 16, 2008 11:19:58 AM
I made this cake for a friend's little girl who turned one year old today.  She's too little for most play food sets, so I thought she could safely play with this now and add more play food to her collection later on.  I attached the cut piece with a ribbon so she can't lose it!  Enjoy Smiley

Holy Moly!  I have the book this pattern came from, and it is super complicated.  It looks amazing, and congrats to you for taking on such a project!  You did a fantastic job!!

Thanks for the compliments!  I think she looks super cute too  Wink

Blame it on the "mommy brain" and lack of sleep, but I honestly didn't think of knitting booties.  DUH, lol!  I've never made them before, but I think now may be the time to try it out!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / DD's First Halloween Costume on: October 05, 2008 09:37:08 AM
Our new daughter will be about 10 weeks old on Halloween, so we get the pleasure of dressing her up in anything and she'll pretty much love it!  My husband and I both thought of this costume on our own, so I guess it was just fate that our daughter be dressed like this on Halloween:

I knitted the main body on the fly.  Making a ball isn't hard, so making a really big one with huge "buttonhole" arms wasn't too bad.  The leg holes I fashioned by ending the ball and then knitting a flap on just the front; I pull that through and button it in the back and her legs stick out each side, allowing easy diaper access.  Underneath she has a onesie with brown sleeves I sewed on and some brown leggings.  The hat and bib I sewed out of red flannel with a baby boucle yarn as the parmesan cheese.  I still have to find some brown socks or shoes that will fit on her teeny feet, but otherwise our meatball is ready to con some candy out of people for her parents!!   Cheesy
