more knitting

Now that finals week is over, I can get back to some serious knitting! Finish up some projects just sitting there and cast on some new ones.  I have so many things that I want to knit and feel like I have very little time to do it all in. That is why I wish I had the super human power to grow extra appendages (actually, that thought came to mind after the birth of Miss K.) I could cast on four or five projects at a time and work on four or five at a time. 

But while I am still planning out my winter knitting, I have small projects flying off the needles to keep these idle hands busy.

So I found an adorable project that I really wanted to give a go……besides, it sat in my queque for over a year waiting for the “We’re pregnant!” announcement from my brother and SIL. So I grabbed some beautiful neutral color yarn in the event that if the baby is a boy or a girl, he or she can still wear these booties (and being a Mom of two girls, it doesn’t matter what you put on your daughter(s) people will still say “What a cute baby boy!” pink bow adorned to the head and all).

Took them to knit night and all the ladies gushed over them!

Yarn: Knit Picks Bare Merino Wool/Silk hand dyed by a fellow raveler from a Knit Picks swap I did (left over from my socks here)
Pattern: Stay-on Baby Booties Ravelry Link
Source: Knitting for Baby
Notes: absolutely love these!! They are so cute! Super easy pattern and really fast pattern too! Took 1 night for 1 bootie! I love how timeless they look as well as the i-cord tie.

Another small knitting project I have been working on are socks for the girls. See, when you have a beautiful dog…..somehow they come with an appetite for yarn. (I’m guessing it has something to do with the animal fiber) So I am avoiding wool for socks and using cotton instead.

No pattern really, just using numbers from my sock knitting experience. Although one thing I am incorporating are these tutorials here for stripes. I have never knitted stripes like this and I do not care for that glitch you get when switching to a new color. I tried the traveling jogless stripes tutorial and ended up ripping out my knitting so many times (user error!) So mine is a mixture of the tutorial and my own devices. So far it is going great and Miss L. cannot wait for the completion!
