^Knitters^ ^Hookers^ ^Spinners^ ^Dyers^ WIP 11/28

It's after 1am. That counts as today, right?

So much to knit. WIPs are a secret Santa-ish adult hat, dh's socks, dd's Gaia, dd's Fiona, and then dh's Jayne Cobb hat--and then I need to make about 2 rompers, 3 longies, and 2 sweaters for ds, since he is in 6-mo size now. Aaaaah!

Morning, Faith!

I knit nothing after I was MIA yesterday afternoon, but we had a nice post-thanksgiving dinner with my father & brother. It was sooo good. We had gone out with the ILs on Thursday and I was craving some leftovers, big time.

Has anyone knit the Neverland Hoody - Peter sweater? I'm curious to know how the sizes run - if they're true or a little large/small.

Thanks!

Myla,

I am working on a size 2T Wendy and it seems small. I measured my DD and my gauge and both where within range but it looks tight in the shoulder and chest.

Heather that Meadow Lily is TDF and Jen I love that set.

Erica, I wishj I had 2ozs of single ply for you. I have found it at the lys before though.

my goal today is finish the body of my elliot sweater.

OK. I was planning on making the 6-9mo size for my baby boy, but he'll be 6mo in October and I want it to last all winter. Now I'm wondering if the 12mo size would be a better idea since he'll be 12mo sometime in April...

I'm itching to cast on something but it's so hard to anticipate what size he's going to be. Oye!

WOWZERS! I havent been on here since Thurs morning! Thanksgiving was wonderful! I knit my booty off Fri night finishing up the longies for Tina Then Sat morning I did the lucet cord. I started a scarf for my Aunt Ann last night. I didnt MQ anything (too much! ) but I did read through the threads from the past couple of days

** ALL of the WIP look amazing! I am especially over those Dup Stitch Coveralls!!! I fell in love with Dup stitch when I did the guitar on the longies for my sis.

** I want to be a part of the Christmas card thing! Let me know where to send my addy and get the addys! PleaseN'ThankYA!

** To those who need it!!!!

good morning I have 2 wips. Foggy Mountain Coveralls that I am going to make into a skirted soaker type overall dress with MM Seaglass and Flou Amour fingerless mitts with Manos del Uruguay handspun. I am going to dup stitch a penguin on the front of the coveralls I think, and then do a something beautiful shrug to go with it.

I have knit it twice, once for Ally and once for Tobey. He normally wears 5T and I knit the 6 for him, it fits pretty perfectly. For Ally I did the 18m size, and it was more snug than I would have liked so I would say it tends to run small

oh, those are coming out so stinkin' cute!! i love the overalls.

Alright - well then I'm going to knit him the 12mo size. My DS is small for his age, but this boy is looking to be a good size so far
