Babies Babies everywhere!
I already have 5 people have me as listed as favourite shop! That is so excellent! I feel spesh! Even better that I dont know some of them (one thing when its your friends...complete nother story when its a total stranger, who must have you as a fave cos they like your products)...
As the title says there is babies everywhere that I have been knitting for!
In the past monthish I have knitted 3 of my fave baby raglan jumpers! I do adore these jumpers, they are such quick knits! I can get them churned out (if I have nothing else to do) in about 3-4 days.
Also good girl that I am I have finished 2 things of my "need to be done by mid June" list! So lets relook at the list before I show off some piccies!
My secret knitting for a pregnant friend (now I know 4 pregnant people so I want to get through this thing so I can cast on for others)DONE!!!!!!
- Pair of socks for Harley
- Handwarmers for Harley
Beanie for a toddler (pressie)DONE!!!!
- My secret sock that I was meant to get finished before winter (I only have a few days!!! Its not going to get done...You can all spank me now. Line up..One turn each person)
- Secret knitting (this is like 3 things all the same but none finished)
- Socks for Adam (8ply ones)
Ok so the two things that are finished didnt have much left to do..But that doesnt matter! They are done! And considering I had plans on finishing up 3 things over the weekend (before I had to do the baby jumper) I got 2 of those three things done AND the baby jumper.
First piccie is the jumper that I did for my motoGP friend. For his son baby L. The sleeves are a slightly darker shade of green then the rest of the body, all hand dyed by me.
And now the cotton jumper I made for the SIL baby girl G...This will fit G in late winter and hopefully (assuming she doesnt get as FAT as her older sister did) all the way through spring. I SO love this little jumper. Though I am slightly worried about sending it off..Can anyone suggest a polite way for me to tell SIL that if she has NO PLANS on using it then to bloody send it back so I can give it to someone who will?!?!?
And lastly! I love these..If someone had told me that I would have loved this sort of thing as much as I do I would have laughed at them and told them they were nuts! THIS is one of the secret things I am knitting my friend Bugsy for her unborn baby BJ Buggy Butt (yes...its a DJ sounding name, but NOT the baby's real name)...
I created this colourway for baby BJ cos mummy was mean and didnt find out the sex of bub (never easy for a knitter)...so I got creative and created the colourway Buggy...And made these..I love them (I am NOT a knitted pants lover..but these..I wish I had made my girls some)...
BJ Buggy Butt's mummy is like a big sister to me. I love her dearly. And I hope she loves the little pants I made her weeeee one (and I cant wait to see them on after bub is born in Aug!)...
Okies thats all for me..Piccie filled post and all! Looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks of all the knitting! It shows that mostly, I prefer babies in BRIGHT then pastal! lol
Happy knitting all!
