i bet you've been waiting on pins and needles... haven't you? we've got winners for our "warm up to winter" kal! wahooo! but you'll have to head on over to luvinthemommyhood to see if you're one of them! and the prizes? oh my! they're pretty wicked awesome.
i've really had so much fun with this kal. and in watching all of you lovely ladies knit up a storm! i love how many things some of you knit! amazing! truly inspirational! honestly, i can't wait for the next kal! soo soo exciting!
and don't you worry.. we'll be letting you know soon enough ;)
in the meantime.. i have a little friend here who's pretty shy about it.. but wanted to say hi.
hee hee... i'm going to be an auntie again... and we had to send these off quick as a wink, so my sister would have them for the newborn photo shoot. we're excited! we don't know if we'll have a niece or nephew.. but he/she will rock the little sac and hat. haha. obvs i'll show better pics once they're done;) and of course the little lamb just had to go along for the ride. ;)
the pattern is "lamb" by susan b. anderson. and this is the third time i've knit this up! honestly, it's such a sweet little pattern. you do need to be comfortable with dpns.. but toys, or "stuffies" as we call them are a great way to use up scrap yarn. susan has a lot of toy patterns published. she certainly has a knack for them, and they're all adorable! i totally recommend her patterns. owen was sad to see lamb go... and promptly picked out a pattern he wants me to knit up for him. i cast on last night, and hopefully most of his stuffie will be done today!
also, toys are a great way to break up the bigger projects on the needles :)
what's been on your needles these days? any little projects you like to tackle in between the bigger ones? what are your faves? it's super windy and rainy out today, so there's a lot of knittin' going on. come and chat! i'd love your company. xo
