Off the Needles ~ and So On!

Baby S has been threatening to make an early appearance which has spurred this Oma on to finishing some projects.


While I really like this little sweater, the pattern itself leaves lots to be desired.  It is full of inconsistencies which made the knitting process difficult.


These fuzzy little booties are ready and waiting, too.


Chart B is complete on the Guernsey Triangle shawl, bu I think there's an error on the middle of the right side that needs to be corrected.  Right now it's in time out!


This long-time project is coming along, too.  That bear which is all french knots is taking forever!


The calla lily surprised us with a second bloom, and the other bulb is working on a blossom also!

The second sleeve on the baseball sweater from last week's post is done, and I'm working on the collar.  Can you tell I've been in the car a lot this past week?  Stay tuned!

The baby sweater is so sweet, Judy. And the little booties looks so soft. Sorry about the pretty shawl. I have a sock waiting for me to decide if I'm going to fix or frog.

The sweater looks so sweet, and the fuzzy slippers are adorable! Do you know Posie Gets Cozy? She knits beautiful sweaters for her baby daughter (and a stuffed rabbit) so you may like to see some of her recommendations.

Great projects and cute, too.

I agree that French Knots take forever, especially when an area needs to be filled with them.

What a beautiful baby sweater...all the fancy stitches and feminine detail. Soooo sweet! Those booties are darling too.

I think you're making great gains on all your pretty projects!!

That shawl is a pain. Unless it really, really, really bothers you, I'd move on with knitting it. Who is going to notice?

Love that sweater!

Oh my, such cute little baby knits!!! Did you use a pattern for the booties? I have a new grandchild due in December and thought to make some booties. I love your shawl too - that heathery violet yarn is really yummy!

love the stitching, mine is at the bottom of the basket and I should pick it up again. Love the sweater and the yoke detail-delicate and lovely texture!!

Great projects...the sweater is so sweet...and the fuzzy booties...what fun! Your stitching project is coming along nicely too. I need to work on some hand work...it seems like I am just at my machine lately! Have a great weekend!!

Love those little booties Judy! Is that fuzzy stuff difficult to work with?
