I am so glad I bought the Itty-Bitty Hats and Itty-Bitty Nursery books by Susan B Anderson (love her blog!). I just finished my first hat from the Itty-Bitty Hats book:
Isn't it so cute!! I just love it! I made it for my nephew that was born in May. I made the 0-6months size so I am really hoping it fits him.
I joined a traveling scarf group on Ravelry. There are twelve people in my group and everyone starts a scarf and then sends it on to the next person. They knit 3-4" onto your scarf and then send it on. In the end I will get my scarf back with everyones stitches on it. I thought it would be a fun thing to participate in. It should be interesting to see what it looks like when it comes back. I am really looking forward to knitting on everyone elses scarves. It will be fun to get creative with picking different yarns and stitches. Here is the start to my scarf:
I used a reversible cable pattern, Palindrome. I love cables so I thought it was fitting to start my scarf off with one, and when I get it back I will finish it off with this same pattern.
Saturday my husband took the kids out on a canoeing/geocaching trip. There are some geocaches in our area that you can only get to in a boat so he borrowed a friend's canoe and they had a great time. I would have love to go but I know it wouldn't have worked with my back. So I got hours and hours of a quiet house and the choice to do whatever I wanted. It was pure heaven. I did get some sewing done on one of my block of the month projects. I did these two blocks. I love the fabrics!
I had a big disappointment on my second Embossed Leaves sock. I was on the third repeat of the 16 row lace pattern (cuff down) and looked down and noticed a big gaping hole in the second repeat. I have absolutely no idea how that happened! I had to frog the whole sock becasue I don't have a clue how to pick up dropped stitches on a lace pattern. I am kicking myself for not using a lifeline. Duh!
