Old & New

So, I have a 2009 project that I finally got photographed:


These are tiny baby duck socks for my little one! I love little bitty socks! The pattern is my own which is included with the LavenderLamb Sock Kits. The yarn is a bit of leftover Superwash Sock yarn in color Lemon Lime.

Now new for 2010 is the pear jumper. The pattern is the Hermine Jumper from the Dale of Norway Soft Treasures book. The yarn is the recommended Dale of Norway Baby Ull in colors #2203 Pale Yellow and #9436 Olive Green. I only changed a couple of things with the pattern. I chose slightly different colors because the yarn shop I went to didn't have exactly what the pattern called for. Then I changed the length of the cuffs, because they looked too long. Then, of course, I got to the end of the pattern and realized that the cuffs were supposed to be folded under and sewn down, thus making them the same length as I made them! I guess it's a lesson to me to actually read the whole pattern! I already have my next Dale of Norway pattern on the needles, so stay tuned!

Those tiny socks are so adorable. Won't be much longer before there will be tiny feet to put them on.
