this yarn is so soft i can't even put it into words! i bought it at the union square market, and i wasn't sure exactly how many yards i had, so i wanted to pick a pattern that i knew i would have more than enough for. :)

the woman at the market let me know that i should rinse this yarn out before wearing, she wasn't kidding! my fingers got dyed!
as you can probably tell, i love quick knits that can preferably be worn on my head!

the weather is getting alot nicer so i'm going to have to start wearing this thing asap if i want to get some use out of it before spring officially hits. :) also, this post has made me realize how badly i need to get out in the sun. ah!

this was my first time knitting two socks at once! although, they weren't knit with the magic loop...they were knit flat on the same circular needle. :)

i have really bad second sock syndrome, so it was perfect! really fast, and great subway knitting. i started a second pair...even though i have birthday knitting i really needle to get done! ah!

peace out

more itty bitty baby kniting! i must say, it feels good to be able to knock out a (little) vest in such a short amount of time.

i really love how this turned out, i have a special place in my heart for garter stitch. :)

at first i was a little worried this orange might be a little too bright, but i think its perfect for a baby boy.

cant wait to see it on him :)

my friend lauren said gavin uses the little paw mittens so much that he could use another pair! of course, i was happy to oblige. these little mitts take about 15 min. each and are so cute!

i added an extra green row on one of them, oops. i don't think gavin will mind though. :)

also, the adorable little tag was made by my friend kata, they are so precious i only use them for super special gifts. that is my last one though, i need to buy more! HINT HINT! ;)

stay tuned for some matching booties.

decisions, decisions

today i stopped at the unions square market and of course i had to stop and admire the kettle dyed yarn! it was so hard picking my favorite, they are all so beautiful!

so huggable...

i dont even need to knit it before wearing! :)

here is the finished product! this particular type of yarn always comes out with a muted/pastel look...i dont hate it!

i think the colors look really sweet together :) this might become some really cute socks in the future!

i'd dye for you

look who busted out their dye! this is a mix of pink, turquoise and chartreuse that i got a little carried away with. it might turn out to look like a big ol' mess....or could be amazing!

i have more dye and bare yarn on its way, stay tuned! :)

this wonderful cowl was made from christmas yarn :) thanks mom! the misti alpaca is sooooooo sooooooft, its a dream to knit with.

i decided to keep knitting the cowl until i ran out of yarn, and have you ever had one those patterns that you cant really picture and you just have to believe the pattern and keep on going?

for some reason this cowl was that for me hehe. from the picture on the pattern i had no idea the cowl was wrapped around twice, i just thought it was really chunky @_@ sometimes i wonder about myself....
