I have really started to hit my stride as a knitter, and it couldn't have come at a better time! I've been knitting and crocheting like a mad woman, and, if I may say so, I've made some pretty darn good stuff. I've really taken a shine to knitting. I think it's my new favorite. :) I always have multiple projects going at the same time so I don't get bored, but I am DETERMINED to finish things. I have this new rule where I can't start a new project until I finish something else. It mostly holds true. I've actually been doing pretty well with it, but I NEED to have more than one project going at a time or else I'll go stir crazy! So below are some of the things I've finished! Hurray for finishing things!
Here we have a bedtime hat modeled by the lovely Pooky Bear. It was crocheted using the finest baby yarn and will flatter your baby's head in every season as well as serving its noble purpose in keeping his or her head cozy warm.
Not modeled by anyone (or thing) but still fabulous are a pair of baby leg warmers. These were knitted with the softest lace yarn in the most vibrant of colors using beautifully handcrafted wooden extremely tiny knitting needles. They were worth the work, however, because baby is sure to be the most stylish in a diaper-padded onesie.
Our model Pooky Bear is now ready for snowtime frolic as he sports his Alaskan wilderness mountain hat. It was crocheted with care and love and the thickest and warmest yarn to be found. Pooky Bear is sure to be the one to enjoy his time in the snow the longest in his cozy ear flaps.
Finally, you will see an amigurumi giraffe to match any baby's jungle-themed room. It is made out of soft cotton yarn and has no hard or sharp parts so your baby can enjoy all his or her time chewing on it until they are ready to chew on something else.
Of course, there are other projects I'm working on, such as a couple baby blankets and a cute little baby sweater. So there's a theme here, right? Baby things... hmmm... well, they're small and awesomely easy and quick to knit or crochet. That's definitely a plus. And they're cute. You can never have too much cute stuff. And... we're pregnant! (my husband and me, that is) And I say we because I'm not letting him off the hook that easy. :)
*No Pooky Bears were harmed in the photographing of these products. As a matter of fact, I couldn't have asked for a more cooperative or cute little model.
