I have been such a bad blogger over the past few weeks, that it is time for the return of the Mosaic. (Really, I didn’t plan this. ha ha ha) Blame it on Animal Crossing!! Now that Michelle and I can play online together, we meet up everyday and the time just goes by so fast that before I know it any time for knitting is GONE!! I am trying to do better about incorporating some knitting time, but Animal Crossing sure is fun!
So, on to the good stuff!!! I have completed a few projects, so I shall share them with you now.
1. I made this dishcloth for my Ravelry $10 Swap Partner. This is a great group on ravelry that does a swap every month with a spending limit of $10. February’s theme was Valentine’s Day, so I chose to make this cute Valentine dishcloth.
2. When I saw the Sweetheart Hat on Susan B. Anderson’s blog I just thought it was the cutest thing!! I started out making the 12-24 month size for a friend’s baby back in Corinth, but thanks to some gauge issues and me not checking them, this hat turned out the perfect size for Maria’s little darling. I want to make more of these, but I guess I will wait until next year so they will be closer to Valentine’s Day. I have my mind on bunny hats this time of year.
3. & 4. I have a friend here at work that is expecting her first baby in July, so that means that I get to experiment with all different sorts of baby items. FUN FOR ME!! I love the Fancy Crocheted Booties and y’all know that I love to make a dishcloth/washcloth (free Rav Download)!! I am hoping to make her some more baby items once my current wave of baby hats for various babies subsides. (Hopefully I’ll have something to post about there before the end of this month!)
5. & 6. These are holdovers from January, but I dove into my stash of Malabrigo to make a few things for myself. The Scrunchable Hat (free Rav Download) – which is a really great hat! and the It Ain’t Plain, Jane neckwarmer. I love malabrigo!! This month is Malabrigo March so I’ll have to see what I can do about that……
I have a TON of stuff that I want to accomplish. I am already thinking about Christmas items and feel pretty sure that I know what I am going to make for several people already. I also organized a preemie hat/blanket knit-a-long in the Ole Miss Knits group on Ravelry, which will be coming to an end this month. I’ll do one big post about that at the end. Preemie hats are so fun and quick!!
