Someone has had a severe cast of startitis lately. It seems to have been brought on by an acute case of FINISHING!

Wild Wood


Wild Wood
Pattern: Beech Wood by Ilga Leja
Yarn: Handmaiden 4-ply cashmere
Rest of Info: here on Ravelry

It's kind of a wild colourway, that's why I chose to call it Wild Wood. It does, however, look quite nice on, particularly with a jean jacket or a dark coat or...

Star Wars Character?



Huhn.

Moving on, apparently the yarn smells nice too:

I had started this wee sweater when Mrs. Yes was pregnant with Gabriel. I do believe he is 17 months old now. It seemed like I had a mental block when it came to sewing on the buttons and seaming the pocket:

Buttons



Pattern: Baseball T from Knit 2 Together
Yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton
Needles: I haven't the foggiest. Check Ravelry.

I appear to have gotten over the block. Isn't it cute? Into the gift stash it goes.

Aside: I think it's safe to say that I am going to attempt to take all of my knitting photos in the early morning when the light looks so nice on Mrs. Adjustoform.

As these two items were finished, I promptly pulled out the needles and cast on for the following:

1. A baby sweater from a vintage pattern(as previously discussed):

2. A pair of baby socks with leftover STR:

Baby Socks



I cast on for these b/c I wanted to try out my new needles as well as knit up some of my leftover sock yarn.

3. I did cast on for socks for my niece with the new Lana Grossa. (no photo yet)

4. And I am about 2/3 done with a super-secret project. This top secret project can be found on Ravelry. If your name is Becca, and you are pregnant with a child due in December, tough luck, chickie, b/c you don't have a Ravelry password, so you can't peek at this project. (Um, that being said, you should probably avoid cruising Flickr, unless you want to spoil the surprise.)

Let's not talk about the projects gathering dust in my knitting basket, ok? Ok, it will be our little secret.

  1. Very cute stuff. I love the adustoform thingy too...that looks quite handy. I made one of those baseball tees as well...too quick, loved it.

  2. Cool find on the adjustoform.

    Mr Moe has declared a steady state moratorium on our home. If something comes in, something has to leave. Unless I am buying something that improves storage/hiding stuff.

    Your yarn always smells nice. Its either you or your hand lotion.
