After about five (5) months I have finally gotten finished with Meggan’s son’s overalls. If you remember from this post (Found my test subject), I am borrowing Meggan’s son, Wesley, for this knit. The goal was to see if I could actually create clothing. Since I was a “new” knitter I wasn’t for sure that I could do it. Well, I proved to myself that I could & that I was decent at it. So behold the final pics of the overalls. They were shipped out to Meggan on Friday (only time I had free this week).
In other knitting news I have started & worked almost halfway through a baby blanket. No, I am not having a baby thank goodness. We eat at a sushi restaurant just about every week. Haruno’s is the one place that is relaxing & fun at the same time. Plus, they have sushi & that is the one meal that doesn’t make me sick to my stomach. here’s hoping that Jerrett doesn’t read this, lol Well, we tend to make friends with the managers & waitresses (in this case they are all girls except for one manager) so it is not unusal for us to spend two to four hours there talking with everyone. Well, I found out that Jarrett got re-married & that they are expecting a baby boy in May. Well, instead of just buying him a baby present I thought I would put my new found skills (April 2012 will be one year) of knitting to use. So after about ten different yarns (lol, I mean about 3) being tried for softness & ease of washing I finally settled on Bernat Baby Blanket in Funny Print. The main color is white, but it has flecks of green & blue. Was going to do it in blue only, but thought that this was prettier. The best part is that the yarn is “super bulky” weight & I can knit it with US15 needles. (in other words, fast knit) I have only been working on it solidly for about four days & I am already almost (lack about 2 inches) ready to start the decreases. I knitted it on the diagonal so that I could get it finished quickly. Just in case, little one comes early. Want to see the pics? Sure you do. wink
Other then that I am knitting up socks (again). Oh, I also managed to knit cables without losing everything. I am so very happy about that. There are so many designs I want to make that uses cables & I just need to work on getting rid of the cable needle, lol. But I am so proud of myself for actually knitting cables. Like an idiot I forgot to take pictures.
Till next time…..bye!
