Things I have been knitting...

Busy with baby sweaters. I have several arriving in short time, a new baby girl for a neice, and a new baby for a friend from choir. My friend has chosen not to find out her baby's sex, so I need to be ready for a boy or a girl, and nothing will be wasted.

The past month was spend knitting hats for those in need. Pictures soon.

Gladly, my daughter graduated Hopkins school of nursing this past July.

Haven't updated in a while. Hello 2012! Hope this year is a better one than the last!

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, 2011.

Saw "Hotpants" - bright orange knit shorts! Along with about a dozen kilt wearers, and lots of folks sporting their handknit socks and shawls, it was an interesting mix of people in attendance.

Not the best image - photo was snapped by daughter's cell phone.

Better pictures are on Ravelry!

What a fun festival, will have to go back next year with a plan. I only bought a couple of skeins of hand dyed yarn, for a special project. Will have to go again with an organized list and large shopping bags.

Here is my latest FO, and Mysty is helping me display the Pi Shawl.

This is knitted from a classic pattern by famous knitting author, Elizabeth Zimmerman. It was a challenge for me, as it was my first large lace project, but was very satisfying to complete.

I found these Hummel figurines on line. I have several that were handed down to me from my grandmother and mother, plus one from my husband's side of the family. I have always loved looking at them. The ones I found feature my favorite hobby (knitting of course).

Check out this buck that wandered into our neighbor's yard. Not too bad! We rarely see bucks, usually does.

And last but not least, another baby sweater. This one was knit in again, another washable merino dk yarn. It is knit from the top down. I added reverse stockinette with color changes for variety. The finished product has buttons - I used vintage (ok, old) buttons I had in similar colors. I believe this pattern is also from Elizabeth Zimmerman, from one of her books.
