For Christmas, some of the stuff Bob got me included yarny goodness!! He selected 3 skeins of Patons Classic Wool in "That's Pink!" and even thought to make sure they were all the same dye lot!!
He also, ON HIS OWN, picked out a baby pattern book for me!!
From the book and yarn, I made these cute little felted booties (that I haven't felted yet):
and started the Shawl Collar Sweater:
That's just the back. At this moment I'm actually done with back, front & both sleeves. Just knitting the collar and assembly will take place. :)
I also knit this awesome little bag called The Pumpkin Purse. I got the pattern from a fellow knitter/Raveler that is in my Tuesday night knitting group. Thanks, Donna!!
I also made a cute little crochet blanket for Abigail. I took a pattern for a Mother's Day afghan in a book and adapted it. The pattern called for double stranding worsted weight yarn and using an N hook. I used single strand and I think an H. Then I added the ruffle on my own. That wasn't in the original. I'm very happy with the results.
Right now I've got a few projects going. I'll post more soon. I'm being induced with Abigail (due to gestational diabetes) in only 6 days!!!! Yay for January 23rd!!!
