Finally! I have finished object pictures!
Granted some are a bit outdated, since I’ve finished a few things before Christmas even.
The first is a picture of my Fetching gloves made with Plymouth Baby Alpaca in a grey and pink combo. This was my first knitting project I made for myself. They’re uber soft and warm, I love them!
I’m making Matt a pair of Dashing to match with the same yarn in a blue/green combo.
Next up, we have the first in my new garment line! No, I’m not trying out for Project Runway or anything. And as garments go, the construction of this one is pretty basic. It’s one of those things that is really easy but looks really complicated. Anyway, I call it the Baby Hootchie Halter, although I hear that Knitty calls it Katja. Because, really isn’t infancy the only time that hootchie is cute? 😉
Now, lacking a proper model, I knew I could try to get my cats to model but seeing as I’d probably lose large quantities of skin, I decided I needed to improvise. So Gizmo agreed to step in.
Also shown with Gizmo are the Mary Janes that I am working on to go with the Baby Hootchie Halter. I have this one finished and I’m working on the match. I’m actually worried that these are too small as Gizmo could barely fit them. Granted he’s got giant webbed feet, but still. So I think I’m going to take my needle size up and knit a second pair. That way, the baby that I’m gifting these for will have a pair to grow into!
Katja, the pattern also comes with several different sizes and it was so easy to knit that if Mom and Baby like it, I can keep it growing with her too.
I didn’t think I’d have time to knit much in the way of xmas presents since I really just picked it back up early this fall. But I did commit to making my mom a few dishtowels and wash cloths to go with her recently remodeled kitchen.
Since those knit up in literally one night, I started to think that maybe I could get a few things done. So I started this project, which will be a Draft Stopper for my mom’s drafty back door. It will be felted, seamed and filled with kitty litter.
I’ve also decided to tackle a Jayne Cobb hat for my friend David.
From there I might be able to crank out the extra 5 washcloths I’d need to add to my co-workers’ gift bags.
And yes, I’m a brat. I can’t wait to get all that crap finished, so I can knit my own damn self something from this beautiful Alpaca!
