Lots 'o knits

I'm sick of feeling like I have 10 tons of unblogged FOs to show you, and I miss blogging in "real time" so I'm going to play super catch up. Hold on....

Leftovers Hat
Pattern: Simple Baby Cap #2 from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: Sublime Organic Cotton
Needles US 7
Mods: Made it shorter (5") before crown decreases as all of bambino's hats are too tall and fall down in her eyes, which makes her scream.
Thoughts: Love it. Super soft, fits great, cute!
Pattern: Upside Down Daisy Hat from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: Rowan Handknit Cotton
Needles US 7
Mods: none
Thoughts: This is the largest size (for a shop sample) and I think the petals would look better if they were bigger. 

Pattern: Bessie from Pick Up Sticks
Yarn: Lamb's Pride (white), Paton's Classic Merino (black)
Needles: US 10.5
Mods: none
Thoughts: This is super cute, and knit up super fast, even with the intarsia and the seaming. I knit it in two nights watching the Olympics back in August. Love it. 

Pattern: Jive Turkey Baby Hat
Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly DK (brown), Berroco Comfort DK (white)
Needles: US 7
Mods: Knit with dk weight to size it down for bambino
Thoughts: Very Cute! Everyone loved it, so it was worth the knitting for something she barely wore. 

Pattern: Baby Kimono from Summer 2005 Interweave (the very first knitting magazine I ever bought!)
Yarn: Mirasol Yarns Samp'a 3.1 skeins
Needles: US 5
Mods: none
Thoughts: Love this. This is the knit bambino is wearing most these days. Goes with everything, fits great, love the sheepy ribbon. Apologies for the tiny picture again. Will be knitting this again for future babies. Garter stitch, yum.....

There are a few more FOs to catch up on, and then actual knitting content, that I'm knitting right now! Shocking!

    What a fun wardrobe you've knit. Not a boring item in the lot. Won't it be fun to look at her baby album and remember all the lovely things you knit?

  2. Such cute projects! Your daughter is the best dressed baby around.

  3. What a lucky baby - talk about well dressed!

  4. That so happens where you have a pile of stuff to blog about, and you feel like you have to talk about those before plunging into whatever's going on now. Sometimes it's way more fun to blog about WIPs and random thoughts. Plus, lovely hats!

  5. yes, must prevent Sam screaming!! :) Is she still being good and sleeping in the crib?
