X's Blanket

I have the most awesome friends! Look what they made me (and X):

The ladies of Knot Another Hat, lead by my very good friend Destiny, made this as a baby shower item for Xavier! He is getting a lot of use out of it as he has tummy time and takes on the arduous task of learning how to crawl. He has the legs going pretty well, but as of yet he can either get his butt up in the air or his head, but not both. The patterns are from Roo Designs (Rav Link) and the yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash. Such a lovely yarn! Such a lovely blanket! Such lovely friends!

A Quick Post

Just letting you all know that I am still around. Blair got sent to Atlanta for a week on rather short notice. So I spent all of last week at my parents with the little one. It was a pretty good week. It ended with Blair getting home (yay!) and our first date since X was born (double yay!). We went to see Kooza in Portland, then went out to Noodles afterward. I can say it was definitely stressful leaving the little guy at home, but we made it! He did too! and so did grandma for that matter! =)

I got a little more work done on my birch scarf. I'm about 1/2 way through it. I'll try and get some photos posted soon. For now I am settling back into being at home!

Peas & Carrots

I have a new pattern available!

I was so inspired when I made the first legwarmers for X that I had to design my own. I added a slip stitch pattern to break up variegated yarn, to avoid or at least limit pooling. Then I changed the pattern completely to my own style. I used a skein of my new colorway Peas & Carrots in my Tencel Sock yarn. It worked up like a dream. I have also sized up the pattern to fit little legs when they are a bit bigger. These are the newborn size and I added a 0-6 month and 6-12 month size. It's just amazing, these are the same size as the first pair I made him and look how much he has grown! I have enough yarn leftover I think I can make the biggest size as well. I just might have to soon with the rate he is growing! You can find the pattern here on my website or here on Ravelry!
