water bottle holder

I am amazed at how nice this came out. it was my own pattern that I started w/an emily ocher crocheted beginning of 8 stitches increasing up to 32, in the round, of course, #5 addi circs (2) w/worsted weight wool. I knit to about 8" including the 1 " of ribbing. then I just picked up 7 stitches on 1 side & i-corded a length of handle & sewed it on the other end. I might have made it a bit too long but hey, that's life. the i-cord is real nice it's 7 stitches where you knit 4 then slip 3 w/yarn in front & turn around & do the same thing for as long as you like.
let's hope only 1 pic goes thru & not 4 like the last time...sorry bout that.

sandi, I hunted all over the place trying to find a spot to delete the was probably right in front of me & I never even saw it!!! LOL!!

kerry, thank you for the nice note on my sox!!!

chemo cap

what a pleasure knitting w/this yarn. it's rowan cashsoft & this hat took me 2 evenings to make. It will be a new batch of donated caps going to those in need of chemo caps. I have another already on the needles. I'll find the pattern link & post it here tomorrow if anyone is interested.

baby cable cap

this is just precious & I got the pattern from & it was easy & adorable. I thought it came out a bit bigger than baby size tho...more like toddler size. but what do I know?? there has been no baby around here for awhile unless you count the cat & she wouldn't even try it on. then again, I've been known to never do a gauge swatch & have knitted things that came out just the tiniest bit HUGE!!!
so thank you, purly girl, for a wonderful pattern....some nice head will be very pleased indeed.

back to normal

I'm back to knitting normal stuff & just waiting for a pic of the baby hat to go w/the baby sweater I recently made. no more nasty knitting for me guys, sorry.
as for the baby hat, there was a tricky spot where the cuff pattern goes 1 way & the rest of the hat another. needless to say, I screwed it up & didn't notice it until I was down to the very last 7 stitches on top. why these things are not done in the round to begin with I'll never know. so I ripped way back & after I did the 2 pattern sets I joined & worked in the round. less sewing for me which is a very good thing if you ever saw my sewing. I should have it up tomorrow. I'm off to bed... ta ta!!!
