Baby Booties

I have been knitting, but haven't been blogging about it much. It is hard to find time to work, blog, knit, take care of a new baby, an 8 year old, and my hubby, oh and myself :); so the blogging has taken a back seat...until now. Some simple t-bar shoes made with yarn from the stash. They were started before she was born and just barely fit now, but cute nonetheless. The pattern comes from this book with 50 baby booties in it, and I can't seem to recall the name right now.

Growing like a weed!

Well, she was born on 07/07/07 weighing in at 6lbs 14oz and 20in long. Now she is 6 weeks old and weighs in at 9lb 6oz and 22 inches long. She is doing great eating and sleeping well!! Falling asleep at 9pm untiil 2:30am and then from 3am-5am which is when I get up for work. We couldn't be more lucky. ;)

Cats love sweaters too

The baby sweater for Lillian is finally finished. It was probably one of the easiest knits I have had in a long time, maybe because the pattern was straight forward or maybe because I am knitting it for my own baby as opposed to a gift...a first for me. So I didn't finish knitting it in two weekends. It did go very quickly (size 7 needles), but I had some other projects slip themselves into the mix and I knitted the right side of this sweater at the wrong end of the sleeve, so that put a wrench in the quick finish. Regardless, I finished up this last week and is probably a record knit for me. May 12-June 15. The specs are Ribbed Jacket from Special Knits: Debbie Bliss. I used 3-50g skeins (or 330yds) of Suri Merino by Plymouth Yarn (55% suri alpaca, 45% extra fine merino wool) Enjoy!

Fun for Baby & Me!

This is the first sweater for the new addition. This is a great sweater and is the quickest knit I have ever done. I knitted this much of it in one weekend and am planning on a finish by this weekend. It is the ribbed jacket (size 6-9 months) from Special Knits by Debbie Bliss. I am having a blast knitting it!

I should have been...

Knitting. I should have been knitting on the baby blanket that is supposed to lift off to India in about a week and I just couldn't do it. Instead, I couldn't resist an idea I have had for some time now...tie-dyeing onesies. I had some onesies from when my son was born that I plan on using for our new addition, but wanted to add some pizazz to them, hence the tie dye. I had some dye on hand (from my knitting stash) so I decided to give it a whirl and here is the result! I used a Jaquard Dye (crimson) and the stove top method directions on the container)

And now...back to the knitting.
