So with further adeau here is what I have been knitting this summer.
My 1776 socks. I love these socks and they were the first pair I have ever finished so quickly. I think it was the patriotic patterning.. or maybe I was just extra stressed.. I don't know.. BUT I do know my son now wants a pair for himself. I can not wait to wear these this Fall.
Talk about small. This sweater is for a 3 pound baby... Well... Since the place I usually donate to can not take 3 pound sweaters [babies that size don't need button down sweaters.... I guess I will just keep it for a bear or maybe gift it to a little girl with a doll.. I have not decided... I mainly did this size to see what it looked like... it was a total experiment.
This sweater is "normal" newborn size.... Likely about 3 months. I don't have a recipient in mind yet... But I did it to see how the yarn self patterned and because I wanted to knit in pink.... the pattern is free and I found it on Ravelry... . You can find me on Ravelry.com too as APPALACHIANCHILD.
Yet another experiment to an unknown recipient... I just had this yarn in my stash and wanted to see how it knitted up. I am not sure who will get it...
This little yellow sweater was fun to knit.... yes it is the same basic pattern as the 3 previous. This time I used Cabin Fever Yarn.... It is soft, washable.. and I love this particular yarn.. .I have been a little addicted to that pattern recently.... The buttons are from South Africa... and I purchased them at Sereknitty yarn shop on Crystal Spring Dr. in Roanoke, VA [My favorite LYS because like on the show Cheers... they "know my name"] This sweater was gifted to the Steiner Baby at Church.
This sweater was made for my Friend Jodi's baby boy Gabriel. You have to see the back to appreciate the work in this one. If I make this again, I will not make it with the Mission Falls 1824 that is recommended... I found out that I am simply not a fan..... Otherwise it turned out pretty well.

The pattern called for Paton's Beehive.. but I could not find any and Becky graciously helped me to see that the Baby Ull was a good substitute.. THANKS AGAIN BECKY!!!!!

This is Zipper. She is a Rat Terrier who joined our family in November. She is only 6 months old now and has little fat and little hair [smooth coat]. I made her this UVA sweater of wool for the winter.
This is a basic sweater made from Plymouth Encore Aran/sport weight... Machine washable, with some wool. It was a gift for the newest Abelhadhi baby at church
I could not resist sharing these buttons... BUTTERFLIES... they really "set off" the sweater.
Another multi directional scarf.... This one for my son's Kindergarten Teacher, Ms. Blevins. She is a Breast Cancer Survivor and I thought the Pink was a nice but not overpowering touch. Yarn is Karaoke and was purchased at Yarn Theory in Bedford.
