Midnight Craving

Diana, the moderator over in the America’s Knitting Ravelry group, just finished her Midnight Craving by Jennifer Weissman.  It is so beautiful right now, here in the Pacific Northwest, we had to do a photoshoot, and get some pictures.

Midnight Craving is one of 3 reversible shawl patterns in Jennifer’s ebook Right Lovely: A Trio Of Reversible Wraps.  You can purchase the whole trio for $12.50 or a single pattern for $5 over on Ravelry for download.  The yarn Diana used was purchased at Rainy Day Yarns in Gig Harbor, Washington, and is Malabrigo Yarn Sock in colorway #857 Light Of Love.

The color is yummy, the shawl is perfect, not to big, and not by any means dinky, and it’s definitely the start of wrap wearing weather…and, it’s reversible, so just put it on, in whatever fashion you choose.  Here you can see Diana wearing it in three different ways.

Thanks for the photo shoot yesterday Diana, it was fun!  Next time, we’ll visit the yarn shop….coffee and conversation was great~

More For Baby

As many of your know, I am expecting my first grandchild in early December.  It’s to be a boy, and I’ve been knitting for the baby.  I made some baby socks, and now I’ve finished a baby hat and a baby bib.  I’ve got countless baby blankets on needles and sweaters waiting in the wings to cast on!

The first is this Top This Hat that is sold as a kit.  I purchased mine at Knit2gether in Silverdale, Washington.  You get the pattern, yarn and topper.  It was easy and fast, and the yarn is delicious.  I wasn’t crazy how the topper is applied, and it’s shown me how much of a perfectionist I am.

The second is this Grammy’s Bib.  This gal is on Ravelry, and she has designed all these bibs.  Her name is Elaine Fitzpatrick.  I was wanting to knit with some red. white & blue yarn over the 4th of July holiday, and purchased this Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn at Michaels.  I was just thinking drool bib.  I did buy some more high end cotton yarn thinking I would knit up a bunch of these.  But alas I’m reminded how slow a knitter I am.  I’m going to move on to the finish line with one of my many blankets on needles, and then most likely cast on a sweater.img_6232

Angels We Have Heard On High

Did you know that America’s Knitting has a Ravelry group?  Well, we do!  We have 278 members, and the group is moderated by carmelknits (Carmel).  BUT, these adorable angels were knit by KZPow (Kimberlee).  The name of the pattern is Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi Angels by Anna Hrachovic.  I just love these and they are very festive for our Holiday Countdown KAL we have going on now.  Thanks Kimberlee for allowing me to post and share!
