I had planned a lovely post filled with nice pictures of finished objects. Ha! It was not to be, all of my pictures turned out like crap. I have a new camera and sometimes I take great pictures and sometimes I have no idea. The constant rainy grey days don't help either. Anyways, Peter says he will help me over the weekend get some decent pictures and then I will post them Monday.
My sidebar of works in progress is driving me crazy, all these projects that are practically done, or just need pictures for the blog to be considered truly complete (that's how I feel something is really finished when it's picture has been taken and entered into the gallery). But it's just getting sloppier and sloppier and longer and longer, grrrrrrr... Obviously nesting is taking over my life since even my sidebar is getting to me.
Well, I do have one picture. This is Kate Gilbert's Pea Pod Baby Hat from the Summer 2006 Interweave Knits. I am pretty happy with how it turned out, the bear is wearing it a little bit crooked, but that's just cause he wanted to look jaunty. In real life the hat is perfectly round and just right for a baby head.
I loved the yarn I used, Rowan Wool Cotton in Smalt I think. This stuff is wonderful, it feels so good knitting up, too bad the hat is so small, I could have kept knitting for quite a while. I have a bag of this stashed away to make a sweater for me, and I am quite pleased now that I do, I'm not quite certain what it will become yet, but at least I know I am going to love knitting it when I do figure it out.
Also, does anyone have any ideas about baby and toddler mittens? I want to make both the baby and Fiona a pair, but I am having a hard time finding a pattern. I would prefer free, as I can't see buying a book for a pair of mittens, but my searches aren't turning up anything. I think I will go over and ask this on the knittyboard too.
And last, here's a picture of my rubber faced child.
