I checked a week or so ago and I’ve only knit two projects in 2012 that weren’t baby related. They weren’t all for my little one, but they were all for little people (or impendings).
Here are just a couple. All the hats I’d made for him before he was born, he outgrew. They grow so fast! So, I knit him a couple more, since cold weather approaches (and has been here for a day or two, actually, but has since given us a reprieve).
(You can see his first tooth in the left-most two of that montage; he now has two teeth and has started working on the next one. You might need to click on the photo to view it larger, though.)
Here’s my project page on Ravelry. I used Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted yarn, in the color Bit of Blue. Nice things about this hat: it keeps his neck warm, and it won’t fall (or be too easily pulled) off.
This one was super-fast to make, albeit a bit fiddly. And the yarn was from the bottom of my stash, so it was nice to find a good use for it! It’s a tiny bit too big, but with the ties I’m thinking it will still stay on. And this yarn is soo thick and warm, too (the long-discontinued, I believe, Lion Brand Bolero (100% wool, thick and thin singles)). My project page is here, with more details.
So, that’s it for today! Plenty more knits to show (and even some other stuff to talk about soon). I tried to make a hat for myself from that second pattern (different colors), but it ended up too small or too short, or both, even though it should have worked. I haven’t figured out what I’m going to do about that, yet.
