Winter Hat, Booties and Mittens for baby Alice

My great grand-daughter is due in November, so I got busy and learned how to make booties and no scratch mittens. I have made hats before for my other grand children but never had tried booties or mittens. I was very happy with the outcome and have to say I love you tube.

100_6534I am going to become a great grandmother in November. I am so excited and thought I better get started on the blanket I am making to welcome our new little one into the world. I won’t be able to be there to wrap my arms around this little one but in every stitch I am putting into this crib blanket I am thinking of him or her. Each stich has a prayer, a blessing and a heart full of love.

Knitting Personality Test

While I was visiting the Kniting and Crochet Forum called Knitting paradise, I came across this fun little knitting personality test. Interesting, It said I was a logical knitter. Seemed to fit me pretty well, personality wise.

Knitted Mesh Soap Holder

I love this soap holder. I made a couple on my own and they turned out ok. Then I seen this video on you tube and just had to try it. I love it, it is so easy to make and very comfortable to use. It works great for your own personal soap at home, but I love the idea of taking it on the go. I just want to make one for everyone in my family.

I have included the video from Good Knit Kisses in case anyone else would like to try it. And also so I don’t forget how to make them

MULTICOLORED SCARF

Scarf for Linda

To make this scarf I used the Kniffty Knitter 8″ loom. The stitch is the twisted stitch. I used one skein Multi Casual Boucle by Sensations and 1/2 skein Caron Simply Soft color Pagoda. I really like the thickness of the scarf using the twisted stitch on the loom. I absolutely love the color Pagoda. I had some left over and decided to make a scarf for myself. I miss the knitting needles , so I am going to use 9″ needles and just do the knit stitch. Simple but a stitch I have become very comfortable with will post a picture when I finish.

MY FIRST LOOM KNITTED SCARF

Knitted on a 10" loom from Knifty Knitter. Dark purple yarn called Charism by Loops & Threads. .I used the e-wrap knit stitch and added some fringe. I really love the pattern it made and I absolutley love the color.
