Bean's Baby

I finished another project this weekend - a doll for Delphine. It was a pretty quick knit and I had fun making it. I'll continue to knit or sew little clothes for her later on. I got the pattern from a book called Knitted Babes - it has lots of cute ideas.

I knit a small scar into her chest to match the one Bean has from her heart surgery...

and here is the finished product.

Taking the edge off

I've been knitting diligently on the holiday gifts, but I'm not good about knitting on a deadline. Suddenly, I want to knit almost anything except what I'm currently knitting. I've adjusted my holiday knitting expectations and I have one last gift to knit. I love the pattern, the yarn, and the gift recipient, but I was getting really antsy. This was a total impulse knit. I cast on and knit madly. It was done so quick, but it was just enough to take the edge off the holiday knitting. Now it's back to work for me. I'll check back soon with holiday knits before they get wrapped up.

Pattern is Winter Femme with minor modifications. Yarn is Tess Superwash Merino. Size 7 Needles. More details are on Ravelry under daniknits.

It's been so quiet here - have you all been busy with your holiday knitting? I sure have!

I've been working on Dominic's Harry Potter House Scarf for a couple of months and I am SO glad to be finished with it! I could only sneak in rows after he had gone to bed, and it was just stockinette stitch over and over ....very boring. I know he'll really enjoy it - but it is one project that I'm glad to put behind me! Now I just have his hat and mittens left.
