Baby genus burp cloth from Mason Dixon Knitting. Leftovers from a sugar n cream skein in 'natural' and blue cotton yarn Den M Nit. This stitch pattern produces a lovely, drapey fabric and the color combo is busy enough to camoflauge the messiest burp..maybe?
Would look nice with some Burt's Bees Baby soaps and lotions too, I think. ;)
Cabled baby socks from Pink Lady Knits. The pattern is Owen's Socks. Find it here. Super fast. Super cute. Very little yarn used.
Close up of cables. I used leftovers of my Socks that Rock in Rocktober. Fastest knit ever. I swear you blink and you have a pair of baby socks. Fabulous!
Another everlasting bag stopper. Love. Love. Love. I want to knit a bazillion of these. Did I mention I L-O-V-E this pattern, cause I do. I really, really love it. Hah! finished the second sock to Monster Mash aka Killer Bees from Yarn Pirate Booty club for Jakey. You can see by the fuzziness they have been used....alot. I'm thinking they may glow in the dark, but I've yet to confirm this. ;)
Armando actually asked for a pair of handknit socks.
What!!! Really???? Okay!
Pick out something from my stash and I'll knit them up for you. He chose "Toil and Trouble" from Katie of Love Sticks on Etsy which was a custom order she did for me in October that were mine that I asked her to make for me. (No, not too bitter. But did I mention he picked a colorway that I custom ordered for me????)
Anyway.....I'm over it now. And seriously, you gotta love a man that's not afraid of color. He has also discovered that little secret we knitters share of the freakin fantasticness of sleeping in handknit socks...Heaven! He has requested another pair and has been told he will have to wait. The end.
Wrapping up this incredibly long post is the Tree Jacket. It's done and it's wearable. Can't ask for much more than that.
Happy Valentine's Day to all. Say "I love You" often and mean it. And for those cynics out there...Cupid's got an arrow with your name on it so you better watch out!
