bonnet and vest

There has been a lot of knitting, some sewing too but, mostly knitting. I've had a cold for a week and the heat hasn't been kicking in the attic in the hours I need to sew.

Here are few of the projects that I finished. Both of these can be found in More Last Minute Knitted Gifts

1) Cashmere Baby Bonnet

This actually fits my 2 1/2 year old so maybe I should give it to her. Or, keep it for a gift. Something to ponder a little bit. I used Jade Sapphire Cashmere 8 Ply in color Burnt Toast. It calls for Lobster Pot Yarns Worsted Hand Dyed Cashmere.

2) Kids Vest

At first I was unhappy with the fit. Too short, too wide. I finished it on Thanksgiving eve and he wore it for Thanksgiving because as soon as he saw it he wanted to put it on and then the following day as well. It looked a bit silly but, he loved it. I am now working on re blocking it and it's looking much better. I used Malabrigo Twist in the color- olive. It calls for Spud and Chloe sweater.

Oh, I made another cute project from this book yesterday and another I started a few days ago is almost done. I will show them soon as well as some other sweet things. I keep finding more and more I want to knit. That Ravelry is so so good. I started something with Rowan Kidsilk Haze yesterday and am just loving working with it.
