woolly babes ~ Melissa


Neoma Jane's little sister will be here anyday and I finished gifts in the nick of time.  Just need to wrap everything tonight and tomorrow they go over the mountains (and through the woods...hehe) to mama.  I blogged about the purple blanket here and the sweater here.  The pink blanket just finished drying this morning from it's blocking bath ( my ravelry notes can be found here ) :
 


There's nothing quite as blissful as knitting things for little ones and I feel so lucky to have two goddaughters to make things for.  And three lovely nieces who appreciate hand knit things as well.  Last year I made them all mittens for Christmas and you could tell they really loved them.
 
I finally made myself a matching pair (I've been busy!) :
 
 
 




 They're Olla Mittens (free on knitty.com) or you can follow the link in my ravelry notes here.  I really love this pattern and the embroidery is super easy since Anna has you knit landmarks for the stitching as well as giving a really great diagram in the pattern (much like a kids 'dot to dot' puzzle ~ just follow the numbers).  Every girl should have a pair of these.
 
Go ahead, make yourself some.  You'll love them!
 
Happy Sunday, everybody!
Melissa

  3. Of course I LOVE all of your wonderful projects, but you are right, I do need to make myself some of those mittens. They are soooooo awesome. I'll add them to my TO-DO-LIST ASAP.

    Really like the colors your chose for the baby sweater. How come I never see babies in these things? I know it's a gift, but I want to see them worn. Lucky baby! Love the blankets. If could push a baby out of loins would you make it a blanket please? (never mind)

    Have a wonderful Holiday. Hugs P3
