A few more finished!

Well, with the recent holiday weekend, I was able to knit and finish up these 2 projects, YAY!
First is the Cabin Fever Homecoming Layette, this one I made with TLC Baby Yarn in a pretty multi-color, blues, greens and lavender.

Second FO is this crocheted layette by Maggie's Crochet, a lovely pattern and loads of FUN to work up, quick too! Ripple Rosebud Layette, here's the link. You will notice I didn't add the rosebuds, I couldn't decide what color to make them so maybe on my next one I'll add the roses.

I again used Bernat Softee Baby yarn in antique white and prettiest pink. I added 2 rows to the length of the sleeves, they just looked a tad too short. I of course didn't make the blanket and I wished the pattern had included a bootie.... of course I could try to design one, any ideas?

I have not had a whole lot of knitting & crocheting time, life has been hectic here but in a good way!

Newborn size Leaf Sweater,Bonnet & Booties

This is all I have been able to knit and finish lately. There is a lot going on here so I haven't had as much knitting time, darn it!

Sweater and hat are from the same pattern as the previous post. This one I made with Lion Brand Baby Soft white pompadour. One ball made everything shown with a few yards leftover. The booties I snagged from this book

A Dozen Darling Baby Booties by American School of Needlework

The link to order the sweater & hat pattern is here.

This is a close up of the pattern in the yoke, which is where you start the sweater and work down.

finished the knitted dishcloths

I have had these finished but unable to get into blogspot due to server problems in my area. I haven't had email or internet access thanks to Time Warner! I am checking in here while using a friends computer ( who uses a dial up server) Sure hope this works!
The pattern is the petal dishcloth pattern found here.
I worked one color row 1 to 6 and then worked the 2nd color back on row 7. I carried both colors right along, easy. 3 colors would be pretty too!
These are great for knitting when you can't concentrate on a pattern, like waiting rooms, traveling etc. Or you're just in a brain fog and want mindless knitting!
I have more baby sweaters in the works, nothing quite finished yet. So hopefully Time Warner will get this fixed and I can post my progress again in the near future, like tomorrow!
