Time to Catch Up!

My, my. Almost 2 months have flown by since I last posted an entry on this blog. I've been spending some time on Ravelry and realized that I've been posting most of my pictures of my finished objects there. So, I'll post them here just in case you don't belong to Ravelry, yet.

These 2 outfits were for my friend Marina's first granddaughter! I made a newborn bolero and cap and then a sweater and hat for an 18 month old! Unfortunately, I forgot to make buttonholes so I improvised with loops. Just the other day, I was looking at EZ's Knitting without Tears book and there was section on how to put in buttonholes after you've knitted the garment. Both gifts were well received. I like the fact that they are nontraditional colors for a baby!

Right now I'm finishing up Elijah's "They Call Them Pirates" hat. I'm doing the lining in the same yarn that I knitted it in. I think it's to pull in the edges because they were curling out. I'm using the softest alpaca! He loves touching it and so does everyone else for that matter! It should be done by tonight and he can wear it tomorrow!

That's all for now.

Hey Robin, those look great! You are a wonderful friend. See how behind I am on checking up on your blog? Truth is, I didn't have the link saved on Meital's computer, so when mine decided to be tempramental I didn't have your link. And you, young lady, don't include it in your posts (or do you, and I haven't paid attention. All too likely...sigh).

Meital and I would **love** for you to "drop by" and join us in some knitting time. :O) I'll bet the airfare is alot cheaper now than during the summer... ;o)
