Lots to share..lots to share.
First, I made this little Milo vest about 2 weeks ago. I had seen Ginny's pictures of it and then I got to see little Silas in it one afternoon and I knew I NEEDED to knit it for my baby to be.
I don't LOVE the color..but it was the most neutral shade available for my maybe girl/maybe boy baby. I love pink and gray together so I felt safe with gray.
Anyway, I began knitting and there was a frustrating thing happening when I increased EVERY round only at the join..there was a little hole. I ripped out and restarted several times. What was I doing???
I called a professional Milo knitter and told her it was an EMERGENCY...PLEASE CALL ME AND TELL ME WHY I HAD A HOLE.
She called back and said..."No problem..it is just a weird thing that happens with some types of yarn and this pattern. It will be fine at the end you won't even notice."
I pressed on and finished this very sweet, very small vest the next day. I loved everything about knitting this little vest and I plan to knit more....
Whispy pattern from Knitbot. I read like EVERY project on Ravelry and it was talked about as an easy to knit cardigan. I went to Fibre Space and asked my favorite yarn lady what she thought...and she thought..."Those are tiny needles with tiny yarn...are you up for this kind of commitment?"
School House Tunic that I sewed a few months ago. I think I made 3 or 4 of them and I wear them ALL the time. I am thinking of sewing a few more)
Chloe sweater last spring. I finished the entire sweater in just a few short days..but I could not get the button loop thing worked out. I also did not LOVE the yarn color I knit it in. I ordered it off the Internet and the color was more peachy than pink and I think I hated the color I never cared if I finished it for wear. But my mom is good at crocheting and she did the button loop for me.
Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting is one of my favorite pattern designers right now. She writes really good patterns and I just love her taste.
Join Ginny for some GREAT knitting inspiration...
