Puppy Love

I started these cute little mitts a bit back hoping to have them to the intended wearer, along with a puppy hat, before now. My new goal is by Christmas. 

They will go to live with Dan's little ring bearer. He's crazy for dogs. :-)

Fort Crone

Thanksgiving vacation has officially begun. I expect a steady stream of kids and chaos for the next week. It doesn't get much better than this!

I can't believe I forgot to post yesterday! In my defense, Maddie kept me hopping yesterday. That's a good reason, right? Here she is helping me with laundry. Oye.

Mount Fluffmore

Now that the little sweater is done my time is going to be completely devoted to the mitts I have going. I took the time to separate my fiber so the knitting will go much quicker.

Isn't it just heavenly???

Michele shared with me a really neat way to do thrums that she demonstrates over on her blog. I can't wait to try this method on the next pair I knit. Go check it out!

Sweet Baby Madilyn

Named after my granddaughter, this little cardigan is modeled after the adorable Sweet Baby Kate pattern. 

It's available free at Adirondack Yarns with the purchase of Spirited Fibers Fingering yarn and is sized from newborn to 5 years. You can knit an entire set (hat, booties, and cardigan in 0-3 or 3-6 month size) from just one skein.

I had so much fun designing and knitting this and hope everyone else who knits it for a special little girl they know loves it every bit as much as I do!

The Hat

I finally took a few minutes to make a Pom-Pom and get this little knit finished. I've cast on for the poncho and will share that soon.
