I hope you all saw my new pattern for the Ice Pop Sleeve! I'm hoping to make a bunch for Norah's little friends too... gotta keep all those tiny hands from getting too cold! :)
Besides that, I've been making various small things for gifts:
These soft squeezy orbs are great baby gifts! I made a few for various friends. So quick to knit and easy/safe for little babies to play with!
Yarn: Red Heart Eco-Ways
My friend Shawn joined me in the exclusive club of people who recently turned 30, so I knit her a monster. :-) I was digging around in my yarn and found a bunch of gold... and since Shawn went to Purdue I thought I'd use her alma mater's colors of gold and black. I think he turned out pretty cute!
Pattern: Geet the Garage Monster
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool
I was debating whether or not to add a "tooth" like the original pattern but I like him as is. Did some striping on the arms/legs to add more contrast color. Shawn says his name is "Beezer Twelve Washingbeard" and that "His friends just call him 'The Beez' ". I like it!
For mother's day, since my mom carries around a bottle of water at all times (her throat gets dry easily), I made her this water bottle carrier:
Yarn: Sugar n Cream cotton
I did the strap a lot shorter because I thought my mom wouldn't want to wear it like a purse. Really quick and easy pattern!
More soon, I promise I will try! This stinker is keeping me busy along with his big sister!
