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!


  1. These are so sweet and adorable. Who wouldn't love to have any one of them?
    I have and Einstein coat in the making...sadly on a far away back burner at the moment..maybe this winter I'll get back to it.
    I enjoy your special place here. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Those are so cute. I saw another sweater like that one on another site. Going to be a rainy weekend, I just might have to try one.

  3. Oh, I want to make some tiny sweaters - wouldn't they look cute on a boyd's bears sheep?!? Which book? Or is this a teaser for something to come?

  4. Sorry if the link doesn't work. It is Susan Anderson's Itty Bitty Nursery. Really cute things in the whole book.

  5. I love that project, al the smallness of it I guess. Your tweedy version is excellent. Thanks for the kind words, Dianne.

    I am working away and yes, the kids are back in school. It sounds like I might have more time now but somehow it never works like that. My seventh grader gets home at 2:30 everyday and it seems like she just left when she walks through the door.

    I am sure you remember that well.
    Take care,
