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.
