Shrug and Hat

 
How I love my library! Found this cute shrug pattern and used Bernat Camouflage. Who knew? Girly camo! I used my new Knitpicks Harmony wood circulars on the shrug...they are a dream to knit with.

Another baby item. This sweater was knit with Beatrice 100% merino wool and the purple borders are in Lamb's Pride, 85% wool and 15% mohair.

Booties!

 
TaDaaaa! Starting small and simple, a sweet pair of booties made for Grandbaby Fuller (gender to be determined next week). Morgan and Viviana are expecting; the due date is late March/early April. Thankfully, Morgan will have returned from Afghanistan about three months ahead of the due date.

Kilt Hose Finis

 

 

 

Daryl is modeling his new kilt hose which were finished just over two weeks ago. I'm pleased with how they turned out and, even more importantly, Daryl loves them! I suggest to anyone who attempts such an endeavor to choose a short man with little stubby legs; as I knit, and knit, and knit up toward the top I became oh so conscious of what long shanks my beloved has. Of course, at 6'3", I should not have been surprised.
It will be a while before I do another pair...thankfully, our next grandchild has inspired me to start knitting baby things (and it's a wonderful excuse to put off doing kilt hose for the foreseeable future).
