Finished some Baby Item

My sister had a baby boy on Jan 9th 3:29am 8.0lbs 21.5. I had just put down my knitting needles on the Hemlock Baby Blanket and she sent me the txt w/ a picture of Maxfield. The Football baby sack is was an easy and just adorable project.

Lopi Sweater

Finished a sweater for myself with Lett Lopi on 4.5 mm needles. It has been some time since I knit with Lopi wool and this sweater renewed my love for it. I love the lightness and the warmth of it and also how it is so predictable. The wool stands up to washing so well and blooms so nicely. I do have buttons for the collar but will wear it without for a bit to see if I like it that way.

Seriously Cute Baby Stuff

Finished these for a friend's new arrival. Both of these were fun knits. Hat is a free pattern called Aviatrix...knitted flat using short rows. Fun and quick. And the duck feet booties are from Cute Knits for Baby Feet by Sue Whiting.

Score, at Tuesday Morning

Stopped into Tuesday Morning yesterday evening and got a new bag. It is the "Crochet Dude" organizer bag. It is a Nantucket Bagg style bag and I have wanted it for a while. Little did I know that this morning when I opened it, the bag is an actual Nantucket Bagg. I got it for $10. I am so pleased. I used it today to go to the Coffee Shop and knit. I think it may become my new favorite bag.

A baby afghan

I don't usually knit for babies, but I had some yarn leftover and wanted to use it up. It was sold almost immediately after I finished it.
