Ugh, I made two really cute baby tops and forgot to take pictures of them! One was called Katja from Knitty.com and the other was Summer Shells by Yummy Yarn. I really liked both of the patterns and they were very easy to follow. They made really cute tops and I would recommend them to anyone. I used Caron Simply Soft and made size 6-9 mos. I think they were too big for the baby now, but should fit in the heat of the Texas summer.
Now, I did manage to take a picture of the Shalom Cardigan that I’m making. (Look on the right side of her blog and you will see the pattern.)
I’m using Lion Brand Jiffy, that I found on sale at Joann’s for $.97! I got the last 8 skeins of it and set of to make this. So far I have only used 3 skeins and I might have to use one more to make it longer, we’ll see. The pattern is also very easy to follow, although she only has it in one size, M, she does give you tips to make is larger or smaller. I hope to have this done by the weekend and will get pictures then.
I also picked up some of the new Naturally Caron.com yarn called Spa. It’s a really soft and silky bamboo blend. It’s made with 75% Microdenier Acrylic and 25% Bamboo. It’s a size 3 (light) or DK weight yarn and will make the perfect tank top, which is all I’ve been wanting to make this year, I just haven’t been able to find the perfect yarn. =) They also have a wool blend that was really really nice and maybe the next ones I get. Cost $4.99 at Joann’s.
By the way most of these patterns I find on Ravelry. The people on there are so wonderful and you can find a lot of free patterns. If you are on there you can find me by Hazlecreek, if not just sign up! Right now it’s by invitation only, but you should get that in about 2 days now. It’s worth the wait!
