1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Fleece bunting... on: November 09, 2007 01:11:03 PM
Yes, the mittens fold back. I love them because my little one has recently discovered her hands and thinks they need to be in her mouth every waking moment of the day. :-)

It is pretty easy to get on and off - as easy as any sleeper. The pattern comes with another type of sleeper that has two zippers on it - one on each side. It looks like it would be even easier and quicker to maneuver if you needed it. I can't say enough good things about this pattern, it's seriously so flippin' easy to follow, and really really quick to make. After you get the zipper in, it's about 15 minutes of sewing.

...and it's not pink! I love having girls, but I'm soooo sick of pink. :oP

Simplicity 9148, size small, the sizes run HUGE. I love this pattern, it's super easy and quick to make stuff like this. Now she's gonna be all stylin' when we go fishing today. :-)
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fuzzy purple baby sweater on: October 23, 2007 08:07:15 PM

From the pattern found here: http://www.knitwits-heaven.com/pretty_baby_sweater.htm

Beautifully written, easy to follow pattern.

Yarn: TLC Baby Amore' (awful to knit with, lovely finished product.)
Size 10 needles.

I made the body 4 rows longer than the pattern specified but otherwise followed it exactly. The sweater fits my 2 month old wonderfully, with room to grow. And it took less than 5 hours from start to finish. :-)

Edited to add an action shot. The hat is crocheted, I actually made it before I made the sweater.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Quicky kid hat on: October 11, 2007 06:32:05 PM

I just made this one up. 10 rows knitted, then 4 rows of purl, 6 rows of knit till the decrease at the top, then just decreased (k2tog) in 8 sections with a knit row between each decrease row.

Caron Felt-it in Neon (from my stash)
Size 8 circular needles, casted on 81 stitches, decreased by one before starting the first real decrease round but wanted an even number on each of 3 needles while I knitted. She's four but has a 21.5" head so this fits an adult too, she's just cuter than I am so I made her model it.

And yes, she's sitting in a laundry basket. Shocked)

5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Baby Hat on: October 11, 2007 06:24:36 PM

Crocheted Baby Hat from Stitch & Bitch Happy Hooker
Size G hook
Stash yarn - white is Caron Simply Soft, pink is Red Heart acrylic

If I ever made it again, I'd do another row or two or double crochet and might make it a little bigger around too. It's supposed to be size 6 months, but runs a little small (baby is 2 months old and it just fits). I'm happy with it though, overall. Quick project too, I finished it in a day.
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Couple of kid costumes on: October 06, 2007 04:50:45 PM

Simplicity 0634 - discontinued, bought it on eBay
Made of flannel with felt for the details. Added the udders 'cuz she wanted them, left off some other goofy accessories (who ever saw a cow with a neck scarf?) Gonna get a cow bell and attach it with rope around the neck.

Another Simplicity pattern, this one for a fleece bunting sleeper. Added the legs and antennae and altered the hood to fit more snuggly. Should've used a pink zipper but couldn't find one. It's a little big, but halloween's a month away and babies grow fast!

All the ones i've seen have been so beautiful, i decided to knit a pair too.

and an action shot on my month-old daughter

They already barely fit. I think she has ginormous feet. I'll probably make the next size up too, as they were super easy and quick to knit.

Yarn: Paton's Grace
Needles: Size 1

They are all really beautiful, especially the sweater.  How old is your daughter?  Shame she doesn't like it Sad  Which color is more true to life, the darker or the pink?  How long did the sweater take?

I just used some caron for fetching armwarmers, its very soft, I was surprised.  Did you make the baby's outfit too?  I'm looking for a nice newborn bringing home type outfit, any ideas? 

Daughter is 4 1/2 - she's refused sweaters since the last one I knit her when she was 3. But alas, I keep trying. I'll force her into it once or twice. I'd say the pic at the top is more true color-wise. Kind of a heathered mulberry color.

No, I didn't make the baby's outfit, someone gave us a gown that I fell in love with so we're using that, plus white cloth diaper + cover, white booties, white hat and white blanket. Something about that just seems so clean to me, and since we're homebirthing we get to pick whatever we want for him/her to wear right away. :-)

Hi all. Shocked) I don't post often, but read all the time. Thought I'd post some pics of the projects I've finished in the past couple weeks.

A sweater for my daughter - so hard to get good pictures of it, but I love it. Unfortunately, she hates it. "It's scratchy" she says. She says that about everything long sleeved though - she prefers tanks year round. LOL

Close up of the front detailing:

The pattern is "Lace Sweater" from Adorable Knits for Tots by Zoe Mellor. Yarn is Lionbrand Wool-ease (I'm cheap.) Size 5 and 6 needles. FTR, the bottom row of lace around it was a pain in the butt! But really is a neat pattern once you get the hang of it.

A very basic baby hat for the new one due any day now. He/she will  be dressed all in white for his/her first outfit, and I needed a hat to match.

Caron simply soft, size 6 dpns, casted on 64 sts and just kinda made it up.

And a washcloth:

Used this pattern: http://thingsstitched3.blogspot.com/2006/10/leaf-patterned-spa-set.html
I've got a purple one and a green one finished. Gonna make another 3 or 6, all to match my bathroom. I'm loving the pattern - fairly simple, but engaging. And quick! Only about 2 hours to make a cloth.

That's it for now - thanks for looking. :-)

I just casted on for this last night! I love what you've done with the eyelets - I wish I'd thought to do that. I love the top, but it is pretty boring. Great job!
