Yet another bootie

I'm in bootie heaven here, with this pattern. My real good friend wanted to make a pair of these for her little boy, so I made one...I have yet to make the other. They are a real quick knit...takes me a couple of hours from start to finish.

More Baby Booties...these are cute!

So, I started these about a week ago...did one and it came out so cute. Well, I finally finished the other today. I got the pattern from, do a search for baby booties and they are the ones "suede booties". I am a huge UGG fan and these just reminded me of uggs :) The only thing is, the smallest size the pattern makes is 3-6 mos which will be way too big for my little peanut this coming winter, so I think I'm going to start a pair tonight in wool and felt them. Whatever bit they shrink will probably be perfect! Aren't they just so cute though??

First Felting Project

Well, I felted for the first time last week. My best friend gave me some wool that she no longer needed or wanted. I had never felted before, so I thought what the heck. I knit a small bag and felted it. It was SOOOOO much fun!!! I can't wait to make more. I'm going to make little felted purses for my dd's for Christmas :)

Knit baby blanket

This is the blanket I knit for our new little one. I used Bernat Denimstyle yarn (cotton/acrylic blend). It's so yummy. I picked the stitch out of the "Stitionary" book...

Cast on an even number of stitches
Row 1 Knit
Row 2 K2tog
Row 3 K in front and back of each stitch
Row 4 Purl

Work 4 rows until desired length. It came out real nice...all I have to do is weave in the ends :)

TOday I did my first felting project. I made a little purse for my daughters, whichever one wants it. When I get the pics off my camera, I'll post them.

New Additions

Wow, I certainly haven't kept up with this like I wanted to. So much has happened since my last entry.

My children all were promoted to the next grade. Matt is going into 2nd grade, Angelina into 1st and Anna is going into the kindergarten! We have kindergarten orientation in a few weeks.

We found out in March we are expecting another little one. I am currently 6 mos along, due November 29th...IT'S A GIRL!! I've already knit her a blanket that I started before we knew her sex, so now I can start working on "girlie" things :)

I've been very sick this pregnancy, finally starting to feel better now. I had hyperemesis (extreme nausea and vomiting) for the first few months. I had to go off my bipolar meds as they are not safe for pregnancy and nursing, so I went through 2 weeks of hell...the physical withdrawals were awful. The last day I took a small dose (trying to wean off as cold turkey wasn't working) was when the excessive vomiting started.

When I started to feel better from that, I lost my voice (for a total of 2.5 mos...I still don't have my singing voice left) and I ended up on meds for a throat infection. It's been a heck of a ride, although she is moving around now. I have a 3d u/s pic :) It's so neat.

I'll post more later with my latest knit projects :)
