Summer Camp

I haven't participated in Camp Loopy for the past couple years now because life has been too hectic. But I think I just might be able to manage it this year so I jumped in and ordered this luscious Lisa Souza Baby Alpaca Silk


I'll be knitting Tilted Texture  I can't wait to start knitting in a couple weeks!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I hope all the moms out there have a wonderful day! We're heading to brunch at Embassy Suites in Loveland. They have an amazing buffet for certain special occasions. We went for Easter and have been looking forward to going back since. 

And since this is a knitting blog...I have a couple FOs to show. One of the girls in our complex office is expecting her 3rd baby. And it's her 1st boy!


Baby Surprise Jacket  Because every new little bundle should have one. I worked this in fingering weight on a US 4 needle. I extended the sleeves and added a 3 stitch I-cord bind off. 


And gramps  Because how cute. I worked this one in Red Heart (shudder) and made no mods other than to omit the elbow patches. The sleeves are so wee that I thought placement would be difficult. 

I plan to gift these this week since the mom is due pretty soon. I hope she loves them and they get lots of use!

Oh My!

I can't believe it's been a year and a half since I posted. Lots of knitting has been happening. In fact, I'm working on a little sweater for my granddaughter right now.

This is Miss Daisy and it's a super quick little knit. I'm working it in Cascade 220 Superwash in Charcoal. I'm almost done with the ribbing and then will just have the little sleeves to do. I will omit the closure so it matches a sweater her mommy has.

What's everyone else working on?
