FFN: Baby Items

June 5, 2017

This past weekend the Giant went to meet his newest nephew, bringing along the finished knitting items for the little guy.

First up: Matchy-match Hat, cardigan, and socks

The hat and socks were my own creations, the cardigan is a Newborn Vertebrae. All three were knit out of Malabrigo sock in the Candombe colorway.

I managed to knit a second hat as well. This might end up fitting him first since it is a bit smaller than the rest of the items. (He’s a preemie.)

Knit out of leftovers of Knit Picks Felici Sock yarn in the Lighthouse colorway. I knit this on US size 3 needles.

Lastly for this visit I managed to finish a cardigan that was abandoned almost a year ago (a different nephew, who grew faster than I could knit.) Another Newborn Vertebrae. This time I used Knit Picks Felici sock in the Shamrock colorway.

You may have already noticed the kitty feet in the upper left corner, this was actually the clearest shot of the cardigan I could get. For some reason, this yarn and this pattern were a magnet for this particular cat. I had to shoo him off it drying more than twice.

Unfortunately I couldn’t go with the Giant on the visit this weekend, however the bestie and I were able to have a bit of a girls weekend, including another glass blowing class. Photos are sparse, in part because we are getting to do more within the classes, and we were told we would continue to get to be more hands on as we progress. (We have four more classes left, so yay!)

I did manage to snap some photos of the bestie being badass and pulling/folding some glass for a paperweight.

Suffice it to say glass blowing is fast becoming one of my favorite things.

 

Until next time.

  1. My mother in law has been doing various glass crafts at a studio back in Madison. It’s a very interesting hobby!

    All of your baby knits are so sweet.

    I will never get tired of the glass blowing photos! It looks like so much fun. Great baby knits too, they must have been pretty satisfying.
