Here they are, as promised!
First off, the baby Bumblebee booties/socks that I knit a couple of week's ago for my sister-in-law's sister's new baby boy, Issac.
I used Red Heart acrylic yarn so that they could be washed without fear, and knit them in a 3-6 month size so that they will be big enough when the weather gets cold in about 4 months.
I stuffed them with tissue paper so that you guys could get the full 3-D effect.
And now for comparison, here's a pic of the baby and the booties. Tiny, ain't he? Barely 6 pounds and a week old.
Now, I need to start on the 2 sets of Ladybug ones for the neighbor next door who is expecting twin girls. They're due in September, so I figure I can start them next month and still be done in plenty of time if they decide to show up early. It will be my portable project of the month.
And now for something completely different...
DS the Elder's Jolly Roger sweater. This is what it looks like after I've already frogged it (there's a shocker) and re-knit using the slip stitch method. I'm very pleased. However, if you look closely, my pattern's off. It seems I'm missing a stitch somewhere, and now, I have to go back and figure out where I went off. ::SIGH:: Needless to say, it's been banished for a few days because I'm just so ticked I could spit DPNs.
So I am going to show you what I got in the mail today...
YARN PORN! I am drooling, but not on the magazines, thank you very much. I love Family Circle patterns because they have such cute children's clothes, and they are quick and easy. And don't you all know, I am all about the Quick and Easy.
On a final note, here's me...well, my hand and DH's sock at Boy Scout day camp last week.
