recent knits...

I've heard that sweater weather is forecast for the end of this week.
It just happens to be my very favorite sort of weather. :D
I thought a post about some of my most recent knits would be appropriate!

This little number was made for a shower for a dear friend of mine.


This ballet style sweater is one of my favorites to make for little girls.


Naturally I had to make matching maryjane style booties since I had enough yarn left over!
Don't you just love this sweet bobble edging?!

Here is a recent make for myself.
The original pattern had a very low neckline so I added this rose yoke to make it more wearable.

When there's a chill in the air I can't hardly make myself put my needles down!
Even as I was waiting for these photos to upload I was clickin' away.
Here's what I've got on the needles now.
It's going to be a 40s style cardi for me. :D

Sorry for the spookiness of the pic.
It's just too dark in here I guess. :)
 I made a cowboy sweater from a vintage pattern for my nephew James' birthday.
I forgot to take a pic of it before I wrapped it.
Hopefully I can get some cute photos of him wearing it.
I'm making my nephew Jack one as well so that should make for some good photo-ops! :}
