The January 2010 FOs*
Getting closer to being caught up with my project postings...
I made a hat for my youngest DGD at her request. I adapted my stella hat pattern. I used a skein of Encore DK that I had in the stash.
I had one ball of this discontinued yarn called Devotion by Reynolds. It really is yummy feeling; so, I thought I would make a little cowl that would feel nice against my neck. I couldn't find a pattern that didn't require more yarn than I had; so, I made one up. The result is probably v.5 or v.6 - I reknitted this thing many times to get it just right and having enough yarn to do so. I call it Holey Cowl!!!
This little orange sweater was made with a particular little girl in mind. She is still incubating - don't remember her actual due date. I used Berroco Comfort DK. I enjoyed knitting with it, and it is easy care...a must for busy moms. The fabric underneath will be used to make a little dress to go with the sweater.
I don't really like the rose flowers on it, since the flowers on the fabric are different. I found another flower I like, and I can use a little hot pink to pull out the hot pink in the fabric.
All the grandkids have a blanky made by Kay Kay. Jackson got his for his first birthday this year. I used two colors of the very durable Red Heart Super Saver Solids held together. It's a great yarn for a mom with young kids...It wears like iron and washes well.
The Kid told me that the four other boys on the cheerleading squad liked the hat that I made him for graduation. I made them all a hat in the CSU colors in Berroco Comfort - even another one for The Kid so the yarn would match on all.
I have two February FOs for which I don't have any pics. One has already been gifted, but I'll see what I can do to chase that one down. That post to follow...
