How long ago was St. Patrick’s Day? This would have been a good post for that day, I tellya. Everything is green(ish)!
I’ve been a lazy knitter lately, and an even lazier blogger. So this post is an accumulation of the last three projects I’ve (slowly) finished off, and don’t they all go together kind of well? That was a happy coincidence.
First up: yet another soaker using the Punk Knitters pattern. This one was done in the newborn size (the others I’ve made have been small). Not a whole lot of news to report there.
Next: in an exciting twist, I made a whole different kind of soaker. This one was the Curly Purly Soaker pattern (free pdf download). I knitted this one up with some beautifully soft 100purewool, and it isn’t even the tiniest bit scratchy despite being 100% wool. I love it! Also I got to learn how to make that pleated waistband. Neat, right?
Lastly, I knit up an Apple Hat in the remainder of the supercool variegated yarn I had left from making the tiniest booties in the world. I find myself in need of a balloon or something else sufficiently round and small on which to model baby hats, as I couldn’t for the life of me get a good picture of this thing. It was either totally squashed…
Or pitifully and poorly rounded-out on my hand! Honestly. I searched and searched my house for something to use but everything looked so awful and misshapen since the hat was quite stretchy! So you’ll just have to use your imagination.
My next knitting project is going to be a gift for a surprise package I’m sending to a fellow preggie down in the US. Stay tuned!
