Well, it has been a while, hasn't it? Rather than to bore you with my "life has been so hectic" speech, I will boil it down to this:
I missed my 2nd year blog anniversary on Jan 31. I didn't forget, but just have no time to post. It's been two wonderful years! And thank you to all for being here and sharing the fun with me. As a little token, I've finally put together my notes for the baby sweater dress and the pattern is now up for free here.
Also, thanks a bunch to Debra and Soknitpicky for the award, you have totally made my day too!
Ok, now that I have these out of the way, I can show you what I've been doing since the last time I posted...
This little scarf for Jasmine is officially the first FO for 2008. The yarn is a handspun thick & thin 30 Cashmere/70 Wool from Uruguay. It’s super plushy and soft - an absolute treat that a very kind friend got for me at a factory closeout for a price that will make you all too jealous so I’m not telling you. But I’ve got 5 huge cones of it so just let me know anytime you feel like having some.
Little Cashmere Scarf
70g of yarn and 6.5mm needles
17sts of 1x1 rib
And the cashmere goodness continues in the same color but this one is made from Mongolian yarn.
Peace Fleece Shorties
100g of Peace Fleece Worsted
I followed the Sheepy pants pattern in XL with the enclosed elastic waistband using some remnants of cashmere wool for the softness and a feather and fan leg cuff to add some interest.
