I feel like all I have energy to do lately is knitting, we know blogging hasn't been happening (!). I have been playing with my serger when I can find the time...it's awesome. Here are some recent knitting projects...
some aviator hats! the cuteness!! I made one for a friends baby boy and then just had to make one for Jane. This is a perfect hat to keep them firmly on the baby head. It's been so cold here too.
pattern: aviatrix hat (free ravelry download)
Yarn: berroco vintage and elle rae lace merino doubled for the ear flaps
tea leaves cardi
ups and two big down to this sweater. I love the 3/4 length sleeves. I don't love the button band. I wanted to have buttons all the way down instead of just the top but I should have added in waste shaping and I should have done 7 buttons instead of 5. I love the top portion. I love the color! So many reviews of this pattern exclaimed what a great pattern it was to work with, I so did not feel that way. There were several portions of the pattern that I felt were missing and I had to scratch my head to figure it out but then the pattern would explain in detail how to knit in garter stitch (really?). Perhaps some knitters like that room to make the sweater your own but I thought because I had purchased this pattern it should be flawless. I would make this again though! I have been waiting to show this sweater for pictures with me wearing it but apparently that is never going to happen.
pattern: tea leaves
yarn: berroco ultra alpaca in pea soup mix
