What would you do with 8oz of DK colorway, 4oz of contrast, 3 matching buttons, and a yard of cotton interlock knit to match? I have an 18 mos old girl and live in WI.
Hmmmm, a Riding Hood Sweater with some pantaloons with the cotton knit

I was 28 in May. Looks like we were around the same age when they were born though :P That is why there is such a big gap between her and my son (7 years).

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers *WIP* 7/31

Morning,

I was out all day yesterday due to DS being down. I tried last nightat 10pm...nothing.

It did wonders for my knitting yesterday. My Oldest DD has has a stomach bug, so we have been home lots.


Here's my Romper Tester for Cristi:

A NB Vanilla Soaker:

This one looks tiny but my gauage comes to a 15" hip so maybe I will size up 1 needle for the hip.
Some Custom yarn, in It's a Girl Colorway. The mamma doesn't want any white. there are a few lighter strands here and there. I really don't want to futz with it, it looks good the way it is. I guess I'll ask her.

And here is my ultimate WIP. Baby Girl Lilly:

Still looking for a middle name to Lillian or Lilith...any ideas???

My kids all have family names for middle names. Ann, Elizabeth and Jean for girls and Edward for my boy.

And a happy birthday to the big boy!

Does anyone have 3 mos old they can give me a measurement over a fluffy fitted? I need a girth, from one shoulder down the front through the legs and back up to meet the shoulder. Then I will rest easy and start the legs on the romper.

Hi mamas! I did not get here at all yesterday due to site being down and running around. Skimmed the last couple of pages quickly though. Happy B'day to your DS Lynne! I joined the FB group and sent friend requests to the FB links I caught while skimming. I do not know how to link my page here though...no knitting in a few days. Trying to decide what i want to do a SH in right now and not sure I want to do any more shorties for this season but not quite ready to start longies.

would Ihave enough? I dont' think I would, otherwise I'd do a RHS with it. I could do the hood and waistband in the contrast and the body in the colorway, but would that be enough colorway?

If you leave off the hood, you should have enough, no?
