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?

So normally I thrive on deadlines but this one has really pained me. I participated in Loopy Academy again and just finished my 3rd and final project today. The challenge was to knit a pillow, a textured project, and a cabled project. These are my entries:

What pained me about this was the huge amount of guilt I've felt about not spending time on other projects. Mostly those super important thrummed mittens that only need a thumb and a half. If anyone is looking for me I'll be spending my time with them.

Merry Christmas

I feel like we're living in a Gallagher skit...we can't have a full size Christmas tree because we have a baby. We tried to make up for the Charlie Brown tree by stringing twinkle lights. 

She's so totally worth all of the changes we've had to make!

Merry Christmas to all!

It Grew

Not that I didn't know it would happen. I totally expected it. 

I'm putting this away until next year. Hopefully she can start wearing it then. And she should be able to wear it for a good 2 years. Can't wait to see this on her! I really love it!

It's done!!! 

Ok, I still have to sew it up. And work in all the ends. And give it a tubby. But the knitting is done! It looks like an octopus right now. Best get to the finishing...
