I haven’t had a knitting post lately. I think it’s about time. I’ve been busy knitting all kinds of fun things.
First up is a pair of gauntlets. I only took a picture of one, but you get the idea. The pattern is Toast by Leslie Friend. The yarn is from one of my Stash Menagerie Club shipments from Three Irish Girls. How I love the 3IG yarns. The yarn that month was Glenhaven Cashmerino worsted dyed in the “Parisienne” colorway. So soft and silky. I will probably make more of gauntlets like this because they are cute, easy to knit and keep my arms and hands pretty warm.
With the leftovers, I made a super cute skirt for one of Promise’s dolls for Christmas. The pattern is Lacy Flouncy Skirt by Kristen Renneker.
Once again, another yarn from 3IG: organic cotton/bamboo in “hug’o’war”. Oh so soft. I wish I would have ordered more because the yarn would have made a great tank top. The pattern I used was Wedding Washcloths by Purl Soho. I ended up being able to make 3 1/2 dishcloths. The last one was only a 1/2 but still a good side for a dishcloth. In hindsight, I think I should have made a bib for Lincoln. Maybe next time.
Last up is another gift for Promise for Christmas. This time I made a cute little dolly cape for her new doll that is coming in the mail. Shhhhhh! Dont tell. The yarn is cheapy Red Heart Super Saver and the pattern is Kit’s Christmas Cape by Cathy Bird. I think I’d like to make her another one, but in a more drape-y yarn and make it a longer length. It would be really cute if I could make one for each of her dolls so they could be warm this winter 😉
