Conch Lace Sundress

Another Chantilly Lace Sundress down!  I whipped up a 6-12 month size for my cousin’s 10 month old daughter, Amenze.

027I don’t have anything too exciting (besides pictures) to report.  I followed the pattern exactly except for using a bigger (H) hook.  I like that this size isn’t very long.  It’s great for babies who are crawling or have just started walking.

022I used Knit Picks CotLin in “Conch” – less than two balls!  I think the color really compliments Amenze’s complexion.  Also, the yarn came from stash.  Hooray for me!

024I have one more little dress to make, for Kirsi, in dark pink, but I’ve taken a break to knit a sweater for Ronan.  I felt like his knitting needs were being ignored. 😛  There are just so many cute girly patterns that I can’t stop making stuff for my little ladies!

Raveled here.

Bright Belugah Slouchy Hat – First Progress Report

I finished my sister-in-law’s Christmas hat yesterday, and I love it so much that I chose to make one for myself. I’m making a few mods this time, namely using size 7 needles instead of size 6 for the brim, and I’m contemplating knitting mine an inch shorter. I’m not totally sold on shortening the length, though.

I love, love, LOVE this Malabrigo Rios yarn. It is absolutely delightful. So soft, so squishy, so perfect! This hat is being knit in the “Sunset” colorway. I’ve recently developed a taste for bright colors. 🙂

I do have a complaint, though. I’ve encountered one actual knot and FOUR sections of completely unspun yarn that warranted cutting. And as you can see, I’m not very far into the hank. There were even more thick, unspun sections, but I knit them into the hat. The same problem was present in the hank I used for my sister-in-law’s hat, although it was much less severe. I will now be thinking twice before I purchase this yarn again. I have one more hank waiting to become a hat, and I hope it restores my faith in Rios.

Please Don’t Pool Socks – Finished!

As I mentioned in my prior post, I’ve been slacking.  I finished these socks February 4th (according to my Rav page), and I even took pictures of them, but I neglected to write a post.

These were knit on size 2 needles (2.75 mm) with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock Multi in “Bittersweet.”  I still have quite a bit of yarn left over, so I’m going to try to make some baby socks with the remainder.  No word on how the yarn holds up, yet, since I haven’t even worn them, let alone washed them.

If I were to knit these again, I think I’d be brave and attempt the picot cuff.  If the socks don’t stay up, oh well.  At least they’ll be pretty!  🙂

Please Don’t Pool Socks – Fifth Progress Report

Oh boy.  I’ve been a ginormous slacker.  :/

Instead of knitting, I’ve been spending time with Eva during the day and laying awake in bed for hours upon hours at night.  I’ve developed this terrible insomnia that leaves me too tired to knit, but not tired enough to sleep.  It’s torture!  I should have finished these socks days ago, but I definitely haven’t.  At least I’ve made it to the foot.  That’s the homestretch, right?
