Knitting Knews

Well, if I had this much time on my hands and didn't knit, boy there would be something wrong.  If you don't already know, Brad and I recently moved to Ft. Lewis Washington.  While he works and has things to do all day, I pretty much veg out.  At first, I enjoyed the chance to watch TV, go on walks, and just chill.  Now, I feel ready to pull my hair out and start talking to myself due to boredom!  To stave off insanity I have knit a few things that I want to share with you.




This pink hat knit quickly and I learned how to make a real pom-pom to put on the finishing touch.  I plan to make more in smaller sizes and a variety of colors for babies of all sizes and genders.  Currently this hat is a prototype for my friend Gina who photographs babies.



This matching hat and sweater are for an undesignated baby at the moment.  I may keep it for Joshua but who knows.  I actually don't know if the sweater will fit a baby as the sleeves are short and the bodice is rather boxy.  So while the length may fit a 3-6 month old, the sleeves may be goofy and the body too wide.  All in all, I like sweater because it was fast and easy to  knit but next time I will make the sleeves longer and wider.

That's all for now.  I will keep the needles clicking so I don't develop some weird boredom twitch.  Take care!

Honda Odyssey - the best van for knitting


While spending many hours in the back of my parents van I discovered the perfect knitting knook while traveling.  Room for the yarn, a snack, and something to drink.
