Out like a Lamb

Ah, the month of March has gotten away from me. Between house hunting and wedding planning and working, there hasn't been much time to surf the internet or make any neat stuff.

If I would've had some time, I would've made some fancy easter eggs:

There's a whole gallery of ideas on Martha Stewart

I'm particularly interested in these polymer clay eggs, because when you're done they'd be sturdy and last quite a few years.

Ah, there will be another Easter next year!

little red sweater

I was a little afraid to start an adult sized sweater from scratch having never made a sweater before. So, I started with a small one. This was surprisingly easy. And I feel really impressed with myself. This thing is soooo cute, I'm keeping it for the day when I have someone that fits in it :) Hope to start myself a sweater soon…

Twinkle Toes

Another snowy day project that was fast and used up scraps. Itty bitty fairisle socks. I didn't gauge it properly and they turned out a little bigger than the pattern. Oh well.

Pattern from Anny Purls. It looks like the link on her site is broken. If you have a ravelry account, you can download it from there.

Elf shoes

I thought I'd take some time this week to share some of the stuff I've been making.

First up, a pair of MocaSocs for Joe's nephew, Jackson. This is a result of being snowed in too long. My work project was cancelled for the day and I had cabin fever and needed something to do that used my brain… so I found this pattern and used up some scrap yarn.

I'm also getting better at taking pictures of knitted stuff. It's not the easiest thing. But, I couldn't figure out which picture I liked better, so you get both:

You can buy the Baby MocaSoc pattern at BEKAHknits etsy shop.
