knitting but only UFO's




I am home again ( YAY!) and ready to show the latest projects, first is a Bev Dillon design which is Baby's Knitted Lace Cardigan ( neck down). I am using Bernat's Satin in bahama. I love the way the pattern is written which makes a nice smooth edge along the garter border, and that is to end each row slipping the last stitch as if to purl. As you can see I have the sleeves to knit and it will be done. I have 3 skeins and only into the 2nd skein and I just might have a bootie pattern with the old shale pattern. or I'm sure I could incorporate that design into a bonnet....



This is the eyelet knit baby cardigan and worked up on size 3 needles working with over 200 stitches in the body has been a challenge but I have enjoyed the knitting! The middle section of the yoke is done a fancy lace pattern and it's not shown well in my photo. When I get this completed I'll take a close up of that pattern, it was all new to me and I love the look! So delicate & perfect for a little girl.




YES, I do have one sweater & hat I was able to finish!









Would you believe this is same sweater? One pic is with the flash, one is without. The bottom picture is the true color of the yarns, I used 2 strands held together of Red Heart Baby TLC in an ombre and banana yellow on size 9 needles. This the baby jiffy knit sweater from Cathy's blog. I have made similar "jiffy" sweaters before, the pattern on her blog is nice as she gives several options for needle sizes and yarns. I made the I-cord for the ties just as she did and used her idea for the hat, it was a quick project!

okay back to unpacking and laundry.............

Hi Tina,
Just dropped in to see how you were doing and see what newest knitty things you've been working on. Adorable as usual!
How are you doing since baby girl has gone on her own? Are you handling things ok?
What is the middle design you are doing, the one under the Bev Dillon one? I was thinking it looked like one from the Garnstudio website.
Just wanted you to know you were on my mind.
