busy as a bee

I haven't been around lately... but i have been busy... and a bit nauseous but that hasn't stopped me from being crafty!







I've knit a few things...









First of all Dawn...(my sister) If your reading this STOP.......... don't spoil your(and Chris's) Christmas presents...












I knit some socks for my sister and her fiance. He is a bronco's fan and thought these would be appropriate! Cascade 220 on size 4's, nice slipper socks!





















Then i made some sleeping socks for Gabe! He loves them



















I also made Leah a piggy tail hat out of my handspun! I'm not to happy with the holes, they are kind of tight to get her hair through... but I should go and rip out the little hair turtlenecks... like that's going to happen.... maybe if i really dwell on it for a bit....


















then i made a hat for Chloe, but a friend at church has a newer baby that just needed a hat, and since i don't swatch it was sort of tight on Chloe so i gave it to the cute little baby.

























Felted mittens, I guesstimated the pattern, then ended up hand felting them so they would shrink to my liking, Leah loves them! After felting them i picked up sts and knit a ribbed cuff in a superwash wool.




















Then i made myself some mittens out of some Malabrigo chunky. This is by far the softest merino wool I've ever felt, seriously. LOVE IT! I have two more skeins and want to make a hat and scarf....



















You can go to my ravelry page for more details on all these projects....


I am now knitting on a mommy snug. From interweave knits (2006 i think) I'm using Cascade Sierra because i am always hot when I'm prego... so its a cotton/wool blend(80/20). I had about 3 to 4 inches done and realized that i forgot the button holes... so i ripped it and this is where i stand.



















So I'll be back with more later, also i should really be picking up Gabe's weasley sweater and finishing it and making one for Leah too.... I wanted to have a Christmas pic of them in it for Christmas cards..... we'll see. Maybe they will end up being Christmas gifts instead....

Oh where do I start. Love those orange and blue socks, and the little mittens are so adorable with the ribbed cuffs on them too. Love the mummy snug and I do remember that pattern. I am sure it will look great on you too. I cant wait to see Gabe's weasley sweater.

You are so good to have all of that done already - and with two little ones and another on the way! I only have 3 pairs of slippers (I cheated and held 2 strands of aran-weight together...) done, and I still need to make 3 pairs of mittens and a hat, not to mention a few other random items. I even started in July this year, and I don't have kids!

I always loved that pattern for the maternity sweater... I'm not pregnant but I would wear it myself!!! Great for big meals! Unbutton those sides!

And that pig tail hate is PRECIOUS!!!

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Can't wait to see that mommy snug showing off that new addition.
