Baby Antler Hat

I took some pictures today!  😀

Here is the Baby Antler Hat I made to go with the Baby Antler Cardigan I knit a while back.

Baby Antler Hat

It was a super quick knit.  It took me about a day to complete it, and I wasn’t working on it the whole time.  I used Malabrigo Rios in “Teal Feather” and size 6 and 8 needles.

Baby Antler Sweater Set

I followed the pattern exactly, so I don’t have any mods to report.  I can’t wait to dress up the baby! 🙂

Baby Antler Cardigan

Yesterday I finished an Antler Cardigan for our baby-to-be.  It was a really quick knit, and it looks awesome!  This is the 0-6 month size:

I used Malabrigo Rios in “Teal Feather” and size 6 & 8 needles.  The knitting was finished in 4 days, but it took me an extra 2 days to block it and sew on the buttons.  I went with some neutral gray buttons since we don’t know the sex of the baby yet.

Antler Cable

I am absolutely in love with Malabrigo Rios.  I bought more to knit a sweater for Eva (which I’ve already started) and a sweater for myself.  I have some stashed, too, for a sweater for Kirsi.  It’s lovely stuff, and aside from those first two hanks I tried last year, I haven’t encountered any more horrible slubs. (Malabrigo replaced those hanks. Yay for great customer service!)

I’ve got the yarn on hand to make a blanket for the new baby, but I’m waiting to see whether it’ll need ruffles or a plain border.  Our anatomy scan is scheduled for June 4th, and I’ve been freaking out while waiting.  I’m an obsessive worrier, and I’m terrified something will be wrong.  I’m hoping for a clean bill of health for the baby, and a sex identification so I can move on to worrying about something else!

Stocking Stuffer Dishcloths

I know this is a pretty boring share on my part, but I wanted to prove that I have been knitting during my blogging absence.

I made these dishcloths with Knit Picks Dishie in “Mulberry” and “Kenai.” The Kenai is definitely going to bleed during the first use. It rubbed off on my bamboo needles. I didn’t notice any dye transfer when using the Mulberry, but I wouldn’t trust it. I will let the recipients (my mom and MIL) know to be careful when washing them for the first time.

I have more Dishie in my stash that I will probably turn into a set of dishcloths for myself. I love this yarn. I’ve been seriously abusing a dishcloth I made from Dishie last May, and it’s been holding up fantastically.

Now that I’m done procrastinating with these dishcloths, I can get back to the projects I’ve been avoiding, namely the crocheted Christmas tree and the Knotty Gloves. 😛

Houndstooth Baby Blanket – Second Progress Report

Wow!  It’s been a while since I posted about my houndstooth blanket.  I’m pleased to report that I’m very close to finishing.  I’m currently binding off the second ruffle.  🙂

Unfortunately, I misjudged how much yarn I needed to complete the blanket, so I will have to wait for my order from Knit Picks to arrive before I can finish the blanket.  I hope the dyelots aren’t too different.  That would be tragic!

First ruffle complete!

Above is a picture of the blanket with one completed ruffle.  So pretty!  I will count the blanket as finished once the knitting is complete, but I plan on lining it with fabric at some point.  Maybe I’ll make a matching hat, too!

Houndstooth Baby Blanket – First Progress Report

As I previously mentioned, I’m taking a little break from my mom’s owl sweater.  I knit a few Etsy items (haven’t photographed them yet), then I decided to start a baby project.

Image

It’s a houndstooth baby blanket!  I love this pattern.  It’s so pretty, and it’s deceptively simple.  I’m using Knit Picks CotLin in “Harbor” and “Whisker.”  My intention is to save this project for a (hopefully) future baby of mine, but knowing me, I probably won’t finish it until I have grandchildren.  🙂
