Some Recent Knitting Projects

So, I've been baby knitting like CRAZY lately.  My favorite past-time!  I just need more time.  I always have a 'stock' pattern or two that I can pull off for shower gifts and such with my limited time - but this past few weeks I was adventurous and tried out some new baby patterns.  It seems easy enough to find something with a pretty detail for a girl, but harder to find good boy patterns. 

Not so anymore, See these:

OK.  I have a 'thing' for my signature wrapping methods - do NOT COPY ME!  But Alas!  What's inside.
The Puerperium Sweater.  That's the name of the pattern.  This one is blocking out on my pillow.  I LOVE how modern it looks for a cardi.  And the wood buttons, of course.  If you're knitty and you want the pattern (free) it's on Ravelry here. 

OK.  Went to get the link, and got distracted by two other patterns I totally want to make.
Here it is, really:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/puerperium-cardigan

Oh, and ALSO by the way, If you are the lucky recipient of any knitted gifts by my hand, know also that they may be blogged about.  Just a little catch :)

Now for my favorite hat, the Pixie hat.  Here's my little babe definitely outgrowing hers :(  But yes, I've already got new yarn ready to go for a new, larger one, with a more prominent horn on the pixie part. 
I am addicted to these hats.  I even had an older gentlemen stop me at the grocery store to ask me where I got this one :)  He said, you just don't see stuff like that anymore - reminds me of older times.  Yes, vintage pattern. 

Here's the pattern link.


Here's the same pattern as a gnome hat for my new little nephew:

And now on we go, to my favorite baby booties, that actually STAY ON! And my new adventure, the Norweigan baby cap.  Link is here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/norwegian-sweet-baby-cap---djevellue for the hat!

And today I have no deep thoughts for this blog.

Now that took WAAAY more time to finish than I thought it would.  And my computer is totally being a terd this week.  I think it's time for a new one.  (But I should have whispered that, my computer will hear me and refuse to publish this blog out of spite, It hates me!)
