Archives for "Knitting"
Well, it has been a busy couple of weeks. We’ve finally started working on the outside of the house. The deck got scrubbed and painted, The exterior of the house is about 3/4 painted. New baby gifts were made and distributed, books have been read, etc. Now that Mr K is back at work, we have to relegate the painting to weekends only. In which case, I had time to finish a few projects that I had been working on.
1) The ice cream dress:
Miss S had been bugging me to make this dress for her since the pattern arrived in October (see post). I’ve since found out the reason why. As soon as I put the dress on her, she said “Where’s my ice cream, Mummy? This is the ice cream dress, so I get an ice cream.” Anyway, she picked the fabrics from my stash – I was a bit dubious at first, but they seem to work well together. I love the pockets, it was the first time I’ve made pockets and will definitely make them again.
A few months after my little girl was born, I learned to knit – using library books as guides.
The reason was I wanted to knit her these adorable little booties by Lucie Sinkler.
Alas, by the time I was confident enough to tackle them, her feet had grown considerably. But that didn’t stop me from knitting them as gifts for my friends’ newborn babies. The 9th pair was given to their new owner yesterday.
