Mid Month KAL

This one was a lot of fun to do. I think the texture of the pattern is really nice. I also love the 2 diamonds in the center. A gal from my Monthly Dishcloth KAL designed this one for her daughter to learn knitting when she is older. I will be doing this one again in a solid color. What do you think?

Getting back to Posting

I spent the weekend doing some crafting. Dana (Loves) is collecting toe cast covers so I made some and may make more before I send. I have also done a few cloths and am having a blast doing our KAL from Monthly Dishcloths. Picture when finished.

I didn't work on the BSJ this weekend but it still is gradually getting bigger.

This hat is one I designed as I crocheted. It has the top three rounds in dc and then front post round and then sc and repeat rounds. It is quite a warm hat

And here are a few preemie and baby hats that also went to NC to Love's Gal Ginger. Preemie items are needed in many areas and are fast to make.

Some Preemie Things

Sorry that these pictures are blurry. I believe it is because I needed some batteries.
These are some preemie things that I just sent to NC Newborns in Need. The hat and booties are done in Red Heart baby yarn. These booties are open in the back giving access for wires if needed.
The blankie set is also from RH baby yarn. The booties are crocheted in one piece and very easy. I expect I will be making more of these in the future.

Jan KAL Ice Skate

This is my first KAL and as you can see it is a skate. I thought this Knit-A-Long was pretty easy but I am sure I won't say that about all of them. The next one starts Jan 15th and I am looking forward to it.

Come join us Monthly Dishcloths

First KAL

I have just joined a yahoo dishcloth group and they have a Knit-A-Long. Two a month. This is the first one. Have no idea yet what the picture is going to be but I will be posting the finished ones all year long. Now I have just given y'all my commitment. Hope I don't fail.

Hummm Now what is this?

I am hoping to post the progress on this. Don't think I will tell you yet what it is supposed to be but let you guess. I am sure that a few of you will know for sure because you have probably made it.

A few little hats and booties

I like making preemie and baby hats because of the instant gratification. These are all crocheted. The little preemie booties are open in the back so little tubes can be used when needed. I will be making more of these.

Are these supposed to be slippers?

Well I tried to follow a simple pattern from Dana and this is what I ended up with. Oh my what funny toes. I thought about taking the overcast stitches out from the toes and trying to gather it but I am afraid it might look worse.

Oh well If I try it I will post it LOL
