Knitting again

Well, a little push and I'm back knitting after 2 weeks off, got a couple of projects going for Christmas presents for my niece

I was asked for some mary jane style booties and even sent a free pattern to use so here is what I have so far, just imagine some nice cute white ruffle socks on there, gotta go find those next, oh and buttons!

The red pair was using baby cashmerino and following the pattern, ooh sooo tiny, but I'm making these for a 6 month old, so I tried cashmerino aran and bigger needles and added a few rows to the top of the purple pair and those seem a little better

Next Im also making a pair of the DIY network "ugg" booties, using ggh velour, works great
this is my 7th time making these

only part way done with one of them, but so cute

And lastly I have started knitting a surprise for my other niece, her mother knows this website so I cant let you know a whole lot about it, but I'm using Rowan All Seasons Cotton in a pale purple, it doesn't photograph well

Heres to hoping I finish this one by Christmas, I also want to make a pair of socks for my other niece who is 8 and maybe hats for the boys, I was thinking one of those mohawk hats for one of them, maybe I can tweak my own pattern, and some camoflauge for another, and maybe some football colors for the third

Am I crazy? no just poor, and I should have everything already in my stash except for the camo yarn which Ive been looking for all year, its always sold out

I'm also in the process of cutting fabric to make more stuff for my etsy shop, I've peaked some interest so I want to get more on there

and in contest news, trust me it will happen one day, I just need to do a little work on it


  1. They all look great! Lucky people getting all that knitting.

  2. Can you PLEASE add the link for the "free" Bootie pattern you show, and also one for the Ugg Bootie pattern? Links "really" help for all of us wanting to do the patterns ourselves! Thanks!
