Baby T-Shirt

Two posts in a week?  CRAZY!

Here is a baby t-shirt I made for my nephew.  It's the Tiddlywinks pattern/kit from knitpicks (link to ravelry pattern, since it's not available on knitpicks anymore).  I made the matching sweater, but being the terrible blogger that I am, I gave it to my brother and sister-in-law and nephew  before taking a picture of it.

The close ups:

Now I just have to put it in the mail!

Another Hat!

Alternate Title: Worst Blogger Ever finally takes a picture of something

Last week, the new edition of Knitty was published ( and I instantly fell in love with Escargot. I frantically finished all the Christmas knitting I had so I could make this hat.  I was seriously swooning over this pattern for several days while I forced myself to finish what I had to get done.

But I got to start (and finish) this last week, and I'm even more in love with it now that I'm done.  I didn't have time to buy fancy yarn for this, so I just used Bernat Satin.  It's plenty soft and warm.

And here's a little close up of the shell on the side:
I have full intentions of wearing this hat until it falls apart!
