A dilemma…

July 30, 2012

I need your help!

I am knitting a new baby blanket for my shop and I am stuck.  I initially picked out light blue, navy and red for the colors, but now I’m second-guessing that choice.  Would cream work better than the red?  Or would cream be too boring?

What do YOU think?  Please let me know!

Introducing…

February 24, 2011

I am pleased to introduce the latest sweet little knit!  Say hello to Puppy!

Puppy is so so sweet and super soft.  I made him out of Sublime’s Luxurious Woolly Merino, which was such a joy to work with.  When you touch him, you’ll say, “THIS is wool??”  Seriously.  So soft.

There is one very sad little boy in my house since Puppy left.  Charlie fell completely in love with this little guy.  He tried so hard to convince me to let Puppy stay here!  Perhaps I’ll need to make another one when Charlie’s birthday comes around.

The other pieces I’ve been working on are new lovies!  First is the lovely purple lovie.  Haha, lovely lovie!  (Can you tell I’m easily amused?)  It’s made from a cashmere blend that is AMAZING.  If I could, I’d make myself an entire wardrobe out of this yarn.  So. Good.

And here’s the second lovie, made from the same wonderful yarn.  Delicious!!

FYI, the Puppy pattern is courtesy of Rebecca Danger, and the lovie patterns are my own.

This week: a portrait of each of my sweet boys.

Charlie, two months before his third birthday.

Ethan, one month before his fifth birthday.

Here they are!

As promised, here are the latest creations.  Sorry for the delay!

I had the privilege of making these four little girls for the four daughters of a friend, Heather.  Even though I use the same pattern for each one, it’s amazing to see how each one has it’s own distinct personality.  Here they are scrunching together for a family photo!

Next are my favorites – the monster families!  These went to their temporary home with my dear friend Linda this morning, and she plans to gift them to a pair of sweet little girls.

Linda is so very dear to my heart.  I first met Linda about a year ago at Trader Joe’s.  (Which, by the way, is the #1 place I meet people.  Who knows why!)  She works in the demo area, kindly giving my boys many cookies and cups of juice each week when we do our shopping.  One day, Linda asked me if I had any good ideas for a baby shower gift as we were chatting.  I told her I would think about it, and it wasn’t until I arrived home that I realized, DUH!  I OWN A BABY SHOP!  Seriously.  So the following week we made our trek to Trader Joe’s, I gave her my card, we laughed over my total flake-out moment, and she placed an order for a hat.  My very first order.  Linda has been a huge supporter of Sweet Little Knits from the very start.  Her kindness and encouragement have touched my heart so deeply.  Thank you for all you do, Linda!  You are a blessing to me.

I hope to knit a few more of these over the coming weeks to put in the shop.  They are such a joy to knit!  There’s nothing like seeing them spring to life from my needles.  Would you like your very own?  Please feel free to comment and let me know!
