A whole new wardrobe
Well, finally some finished projects to show. Practically a whole new wardrobe. I've knit two new sweaters, a skirt and a pair of jeans. No, really, I knit some jeans! Aren't these just the cutest things you have ever seen? You may have guessed that these are not exactly people size, though I would certainly love to have some that fit me. Especially, that green turtleneck. It looks like a sweater I could live in all winter (that is, if we actually have winter this year). On second thought, maybe not that stripey little skirt. I wouldn't ever wear anything with stripes going in that direction! But, it would look really good on someone tiny, say, my 4 year old grand-daughter! These patterns all came from this this book which contains some of the cutest baby knitting projects around. (And don't you just love those tiny clothes pins?)
I've been obsessed with knitting little bitty things, whenever I'm not working on my Einstein Coat (which has gotten so big it needs a chair of it's own whenever I am knitting on it). I'm on the first sleeve now and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I may actually finish the thing in time to wear it this year!
