Tiny Boots

This is from Natural Nursery Knits and a cute, quick pattern. I love the simplicity. One of the kids' teachers is having a baby boy so these will be for them. I am embarking on a new method of trying to knit down the stash and feel accomplished. I am filling a basket with yarn and knitting until it is empty (for now). I have emptied the basket once this year and the stack of yarn here is the second basketful. This time the basket contains leftovers and single skeins for the most part. This is what I have to work with until the basket is gone. The baby boots were the first finished project of basket number two.

Using up the little bits...

This is the last of a ball of Cascade Fixation yarn. These little socks take so little yarn and are so cute!

Lavender Lace Beanie

Here is Hailey modeling my latest hat made of stashed yarn. This is a silk/wool blend that is just yummy to work with.

Like Birds on a Wire!

This hat is called "Bird on A Wire" and was in the Fall 2009 issue of Vogue Knitting. It was my first stab at double knitting and it is fully reversible. It was a Christmas present for Hailey and I dare say that she likes it!

Owly Milo

This is the third Milo sweater out of the same yarn! I am not yet tired of this pattern and it may serve to clothe a few more babies yet. This particular Milo is for my friend Alice's new little guy, due any second! I find the owl cable hopelessly cute!
