So, I finally got around to working on the pictures. This will be a heavy picture post, so bare with me.
Clapotis - c'est fini! I'm so excited to have this completed.
It's a bit smaller than the pattern, since I used a lighter weight yarn, but I think it turned out beautifully. I love the subtle variations in the color.
Now on to the knitterly gifts that I've received for HTK:
A beautiful feather and fan blanket. I can't figure out what the yarn is, but is soft and cuddly. I hope he likes it.
A simple, chunky knit blanket from a dear friend of the family. She is in her 90s!! And still kniting. The subtle colors don't show up too well in the picture, but it is gorgeous.
And another beautiful blanket - this one from my grandmother who lovingly knit this while her husband was in the hospital. It kept her busy and made a great gift. She's making the little peanut a hooded sweater, too. I can't wait to see it when it's finished.
And an adorable little newborn hat. It's all stretched out to fit on the sheep's head, but I couldn't resist. The sheep was a shower gift from Aunt Kristin. It has a white noise machine inside that plays all sorts of soothing sounds for bebe.
And now for the knitterly gifts for me - my yarn purchases and gifts:
Some lovely DB baby cashmerino that my sister sent me a while back as a surprise. I'm still trying to find the perfect project for it.
OK - well, I have to run get some work done, but I wanted to finally share some pictures. Now - to figure out what to do with all this lovely yarn!
Oh yeah - and the basketweave is getting some action this week. Won't be done for Larry's birthday, but maybe christmas? I can dream, right.
