Did you miss me?

I've been working up another SAL project that I will post when it is no longer a surprise.

Went to see my friends who had twins yesterday. I wasn't able to see the babies yet but hope to over the weekend. I've seen several pictures of them and they are adorable. They had a boy and a girl! Sweet, sweet, sweet!!!

More later.

Caterpillar Baby Pillow Pattern

Check out my SAL site for a new post.

Here is a photo, all-be-it poorly done, of the cover of the little book that had the baby pillow pattern in it. The finished size is about that of a dinner plate. So cute and just right for a little love bug.

This is what one of the pillows I created looks like. This one is for Knitty Yoda's precious new baby, Flora. If you haven't seen a picture of her yet you can sneak a peek at Neighbor Knitter's site.

Items I finished in 2006 and never posted!

Here are some baby gifts I made for my friend Kara who is expecting twins. These were given to her at a shower held before Thanksgiving. I was waiting to post them until I gave Knitty Yoda a caterpillar pillow for her baby.

All of the shoes are crocheted from an Annie's Attic pattern book. There are so many cute pairs of booties in it!

The pink and blue hats with the top knots are the umbilical cord hats from The Stitch N'Bitch book.

This little white hat was found via Crochet Pattern Central's (CPC) site.

This one was also found through CPC's site. I have to say that they were both really fun and quick to make!

Umm... I'm not sure where I found the red hat. I will have to do some investigating but it is just a simple hat made with front post double crochets at the rim so that it looks like a rib knit.

These are caterpillar pillows for a baby's sweet little head to rest on. I found this great pattern in a small pamphlet at my local grocery store check-out. It has no ISBN and I've not been able to find a link for it anywhere. I simply knitted 2 horse-shoe shapes, sewed them together and filled with polyfill. Then I made and eye cord and sewed it on. Lastly came the eyes and the antenne. I love how unique they are!

Happy Saturday

I haven't stopped smiling since I met baby Yoda yesterday. Mind you, that sweet baby looks NOTHING like the real yoda but oh so much like Knitty Yoda and the rest of the clan. Sweeeeeett!

I've completed 2 more stash-a-long projects and am ready to complete another before the weekend is over. Check the SAL site for pics.

While I pressed the scarf using a squirt bottle and low heat, look what Miss Knotty got into! She has having a grand 'ol time squirting her face and drinking the water.

I wanted to post some other pics that I've been late in sharing with y'all. This is Miss K with Momma K in December. They're at my parents home in Georgia riding the E-Z-Go with Sadie the Yorkie. Yes, the dog does have on a visor. Cute isn't it? Even though Miss K was feeling under the weather, I really love this picture.

Happy knitting and hooking y'all!

I don't want to be the one to make the big announcement for Ann (Yoda) but I do want to say that she had the baby this afternoon and all are doing well. I'm sure she will be excited to share her news when she's ready. I'm VERY VERY excited and happy for them all!


I'm sitting here anxiously awaiting the phone to ring to find out if Knitty Yoda has a girl or a boy and it is plain ol' making me a nervous Nellie!

Keep up thoughts and prayers for you Ann!

What's on my hook and needles

I'm about 95% done with a purse I'm making from the Interweave Crochet's Fall 2005 issue. I should have it done by tonight.

I'm about 80% done with a hat for my SIL's b-day which is next week. I also want to make her a scarf to match so I'd better get busy!

A few babies will be beorn to several friends of mine in the next few weeks and days and I have a few "Welcome Baby" gifts that I need to crank out. It sure seems that these babies come all grouped together.

Photos to come!

In general I won't discuss news items on my blog, but I felt the need to comment on how happy I was that the 2 young men/boys were found safely in Missourri on Friday! It didn't seem as though it wouldn't have a happy ending, these things often don't, but Thank You God!!! that this time it did. These boys, especially the one who had been missing 4-5 years, will need continue support and prayer.

Miss Knotty in the New Year!

Miss Knotty says "I'm baaaacccckkkk!!"

Here she is in her cupcake hat from the Naked Sheep. Since this was also from my stash so I am going to enter it on the
my stash-a-long site. It was fun and easy to knit. I wasn't too excited about sewing all the "sprinkles" on one at the time but it really made a difference in the overall appearance of the hat. Best of all, my girl loves it and will wear it with that big 'ol smile on her face!!!

Here is the Stash-A-Long Info!!
