Yeah, there has been some knittin going on. I have to admit, I have a fiber addiction... and I am not ready to share pictures or details with the world anytime soon. I have saved clippings from fashion magazines, started an idea book, a sketch book, a project book, created a few spreadsheets and placed patterns in plastic sleeves in binders...2008 it is time to CREATE more.
If you have some extra mason-dixon inpired kitchen (you know what the ball-band dish cloths are made of!) cotton lying around... and there are babies in your circle of influence :)-- may I recommend making them some legwarmers! I made a set for little Lilly-pie. Its' basically knitting sweater sleeves- that will protect her legs/knees/clothes when she starts crawling.
I didn't use a pattern, a total pick up and knit zimmerman kinda thing-- just let the 2x2 ribbing at cuffs do their thing :)
Here is a quicky project I cast on-- a Basic Neapolitan inspired garter stitch scarf. I picked up the yarn at Knit Cafe back in the spring during one of our LA trips--
Pattern: SnB inspired basic garter stripe
Yarn: Araucania Nature Cotton- 3 skeins- brown/cream/pink
