Yarn Swap,Baby!

I recently participated in a yarn swap. Names of knitting group members were drawn, color themes were chosen, and we were to send yarn (and other goodies) to the person whose name we drew.

Mine went to Florida -- "Seafoam Green."

The package I received was from Iowa -- "Pink Panther."

Here's the hat I made with one of the skeins... Plymouth Massimo. Thanks, Diane!

A Little Bit for Me

I have been having a lot of fun knitting baby things for friends and family. I still have more to go. But it's also time for me to make something for myself. ;o] I chose the Interweave Knits Lotus Blossom Tank. I didn't care for the feel or colors of the recommended bamboo yarn. Instead, I chose Reynolds' Saucy, a mercerized cotton in a periwinkle.

Babies, Babies, Babies

So many friends and family members are having offspring recently. It's a new generation. I pray for many blessings on each of these families.

Here are a few more knitted items hot off the needles. I can't wait to see photos of the little cherubs wearing them!

Peter's tuxedo sweater...for all his formal affairs.

Laurel's entrelac hat...soft and colorful cotton.

Issa's cotton summer outfit...she's a California girl.
