Knitzmo?

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Granted some are a bit outdated, since I’ve finished a few things before Christmas even.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.
