A bunch of new pictures!



Mini Uggs! I have been wanting to knit these adorable baby booties ever since I first saw them, but I don't have any little bitty ones in my life right now. However, I mentioned them to Vicky and showed her a picture, and right away she wanted a pair for the shop. We put them by the checkout yesterday and everyone thought they were the cutest things! I am also knitting up another pair for her nephew who will be born soon. Poor yarn shop owner...no time to knit....very sad thing indeed. She sure keeps me knitting away though! (not that I mind, not one little bit...)



Here's the tote bag after I did the needle felting. I think it turned out pretty good for my first attempt.



A few washcloths I knit for Kim's bridal shower. I thought the first one (yellow) turned rather big, so I scaled it down (pink) which then was just a wee bit too small. The green one is "just right" and I'll make up a few more in that size. I am not using the cotton chenille as suggested. Instead I am using the wonderful Araucania Nature Cotton. SOOOO soft, and I love how it is spun thick/thin and so has little nubbies as you knit. I love the feel of it and the texture when it's knit up. The colors are great too. These will have a B&BW soap with them as shower prizes.



This past weekend I knit up a pair of fingerless mitts with the small amount of yarn that was leftover from the Sheep Tote. I basically made up the pattern as I went along and (after a few false starts) was pretty pleased with how they turned out. Mistaken Rib cuff and around the fingers, and a K1 P1 rib on the thumb hole edge.

The uggs are so cute! Your sheep bag turned out well too. Heck, everything you posted about is great!

:::perk:::: You're a yarn shop owner?!?! And you have the felted sheep bag kit!! Do you do mail order? If you don't normally, would you do it for a fellow Raok'er?

:::on my knees begging ::: please please please!

I don't have a LYS (we're talking the closest is about 60 miles and in L.A. traffic, thats about 2 hours - one way) and I've been looking for someplace to buy this online and haven't really been successful.

Everything is wonderful, but I do love the flower washcloths. The colors are great. I might have to break down and knit a few!

Trish said...

No, Stacy, I'm not the shop owner.(I wish!) Vicky is the owner. I work there and teach classes. My dream job!

What a cute washcloth pattern!! Do you still have this pattern, and if so, would I be able to purchase it from you? These would make really awesome Christmas gifts with some soap. I also really liked the scarf. The colors are beautiful! Will you tell me where to find that pattern?

The washcloth pattern is available online here:

I don't know which scarf you are talking about, so please let me know and I'll let you know about the pattern. I hope you come back to read this comment since I don't have your email to contact you personally!

Sorry, Trish, about not leaving an e-mail address. I'm very new to this so I'm having some technical difficulties, mostly with the brain. My e-mail address is arnoldkk@inbox.com. The scarf that I had seen was the alternating elegance scarf. Thank you so much for responding. I'm trying to get the hang of knitting so the uggs look a little out of my league, but they sure do give me something to look forward to doing once I get better!!
