No Harm in Yarn

Can't we all just knit along?


The Baby Next Door

Well, the neighbors have a brand spankin' new baby. It's always amazing to me that all humans start out so small. Anyhow, new babies mean gift knitting! I made a blanket.

This is no wimpy, thin, sportweight baby blanket. It's worsted, which makes it cushy and a little weighty. Perfect because winter is right around the corner. I used Caron Simply Soft Paints and Louisa Harding's pattern from Natural Knits.

I've made some progress on Monkey socks, meant to be a Christmas gift, in Patons Stretch Socks.

I feel pretty awesome that I have a Holiday project just about finished in September. I have to admit that I love Christmas so much that I start planning for it in August. I've even purchased my wrapping paper melange(I must always have a theme) for this year. But I rarely find myself ahead on the Christmas knitting. Wheee!



I've finished 2 more projects.

Mossy Jacket in Moda Dea Vision

I put some buttons on the Mossy Jacket in Moda Dea Vision. I really like the look of shell buttons. They sort of "class up" any garment. I got these from an old jacket, so I've been all "green" and recycled something. Yay!

Here are the finished Leafy Lace socks photographed on a piece of fabric my husband brought home from Africa.

This was a great pattern! Everything made with Trekking XXL turns out gorgeous, doesn't it.

Currently I'm making some scarves and stuff to sell on Etsy and a cowl for my boss. I'll post photos of the cowl when it's done.

Have a good one!
