Cutest Girls sweater

I made this for a co-worker then she said it was too small for her Daughter then changed her mind completely about wanting this. So I now have this cute little sweater size 6 girls. I have made one like this for myself but have to take a picture of it still.

Just a few more baby items!

This is an Angel Sweater from Oat Couture, yarn is Cascade baby yarn. size is 6 months

Cute little pants, made with Fancy Image Yarn DK weight, Knitting Pure and Simple newborn size
This jacket goes with the pants, free pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple site.

Just a few baby sweaters that I make because baby items knit up so fast! These sweaters made with Encore and once again Knitting Pure and Simple patterns. The bottom sweater is a hoodie and will be sent up to Juneau for a friend of ours up there who's wife just had a baby boy in July.

Fabulous afghan!

Loved this kit! It's hand dyed/hand tied from Fancy Image Yarn. I can't wait to make more of these. Very fast knit and it's so soft!!

Easy Lacy Ponchos

Ahhh the Easy Lacy Ponchos! I made uhmmm eight of these within 3 months. The first one I made was the red, then people at work loved it so I made two more and sold those. Then Family came down from Anchorage so I gave them two poncho. Then finally I made the pink and blue ones for two of my Cousins that recently graduated. I do have a black one which I didn't get a picture of. The yarn Fancy Image Yarn pattern, Knitting pure and Simple.

Knitting Lingerie Style, tank top

I made this using cotton yarn and the pattern is from Knitting Lingerie Style. Thinking I will frog and start over, the fit is too big. Love the color though.

Kacy in a sweater

See what happens when Kacy walks around meowing (begging) for food. She gets put into a baby sweater! Works everytime, as soon as this is on as soon as it's off she's quiet. I love how Toby was giving her support haha. The sweater is made with two strands fingering weight hand dyed yarn using Knitting Pure and Simple patter. The yarn of course from Fancy Image Yarn.
