A large picture; hopefully.
I made one of these for my neice, and another one (in variegated lavender) for her brother. It's gotten "very well loved" in that Velveteen Rabbit sort of way - kind of rougher around the edges now, although it's holding together!
This was made by 18 faculty & staff at the school where I work. It was auctioned at the Benefit to raise $ for the scholarship fund. It went for $1000.
Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino
pattern used from Vogue 'Knitting on the Go' series.
It was my idea to do this & I'm now thinking of what to do for next year.
Baby blanket I made for my sister and her partner for the little bundle of joy they are expecting next month. I used Mission Falls 1824 superwash and size 8 needles. The pattern is called "Tilting Ladder Pattern" and I found it in Barbara Walker's "Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns." Don't you love Barbara's books? I have worn out my copy of "Treasury of Knitting Patterns." The pages are coming out and the binding is broken but it's still the first place I go when looking for something new to do.
When I went home and Christmas my sister told me that she and her partner are going to be mommies in March. I'm thrilled to finally become an uncle. So I came home and started to knit. I made these booties using three plies of recycled lace-weight cashmere that I bought on ebay. I used size 2 double points and a pattern I found online called "Christine's Baby Booties." The color is a bright lilac. The picture looks too blue and too dark on my monitor. I also made a baby blanket in the same color using Mission Falls 1824 superwash. I used a cables and lace pattern that was fun to work.
I didn't set out to make a baby hat, but was just playing around and it sort of fell off the needles.
