A Bernat crochet kit that not only was uni-sex (since gender of baby is still a secret), but an excellent deal too! Unfortunately, I am still not confident with my crochet skills and I think crocheted fabric is too thick and hard for a baby. So, I knitted the pattern instead (with some simple crochet edging)... but my calculations failed, which explains why the blanket is only half the intended size. Luckily, it's still a decent size for a newborn and it's already quite heavy with a lavender flannel lining, so everything worked out by mistake!
MR. T II & MS. BUNNIE
These cuties are for my sisters. Ms. Bunnie for sister B and Mr. T II for sister C. I really enjoyed knitting these two suckers and the glass beads eyes make them look sooo innocent!... It took about 6 hours for each, which is quick and easy. Pretty soon, they will need clothes... but then again, I think they look cuter naked!
JOSIE (Rowan Ribbon Twist)
My frumpbuster piece. These used to be a vest, but the yarn was this really cheap nylon/poly-something that was hard, scratchy and dusty. Had numerous sneeze attacks whilst working with this yarn. But working 2 strands together gave a nice thick fabric perfect for a bag. Since I seem to be allergic to this thing, I will give it to my sister.
The other pieces are coming along... will post when they are done. In the meantime, my container will finally arrive tomorrow morning!!! (It took a long time because the truck drivers at the port are on strike - grrrrr..... ) Really excited because I can finally work on the FBS but it will probably take me ages to get back into the beat of the pattern.
