Here is my first post of the finished toddler jaywalkers (I will type the pattern up soon). I am finished with my socks too, but am waiting for pictures to be taken this weekend.
This is the Opal Zebra striped yarn, but because the socks are so small, the stripes didn't really work out to look much like Zebras. Mine did. Hers are cute anyway. Especially in these shoes!

Fancy Kitty

I made this kitty (Jess Hutch's free Knitty pattern, Kate), for my friend's daughter. I changed the coloring - since she loves pink and purple, and then couldn't stop there - I had to make her a removable tutu and a little tiara. I better get her in the mail now before she ends up becoming part of our family.

she loves her dolls

I had to put this one more up - just because she loves Go-Go Baby so much, doesn't mean that she is neglecting her first love Small.

Out with Go-Go

Zora loves to take Go-Go Baby out to the park with us. She buckles her in: And off they GO:
To the "Wee's":
It makes me happy.

long lost bunny post

Remember this bunny I made for Julie months ago?
Here is Zora's version. I tried a skirt this time, and striped pants. I think if I make another one, it will be more like the first - I think that one turned out better.
this one is cute though. I finished this one months ago too. Forgot to post it. Now I just need to find the pictures of Cricket I took - they are burned on a disc somewhere.

finished log-cabins

oh, about 3 or 4 months ago...
I forgot to take pictures of these - I just wrapped them up and gave them to my husband on his birthday in late April. He hasn't worn them yet - being summer. Plus, I want to add leather bottoms to them.

I loved making these socks, and think I will make myself some as well. I used the Cascade Pastaza (which they called for), but I used size 7 needles - Lee has big feet. They fit perfectly. I think you could use any heavy worsted superwash wool to make a washable version - just so long as you get the gauge by changing needles if necessary. The Pastaza is 4 st per inch with size 9 needles -it is considered heavy worsted to bulky in size. I think I will try to find myself some superwash - I like my socks machine washable! But as slippers, like these will be, it might not be such a big deal - and the Pastaza is super soft and cushie - I love it.

Thanks to Siri for bringing these socks back to my attention - she just commented on my initial post, and made me realize that I never put an update. I find it is pretty difficult to stay up to date on this blog, to read other blogs, to still create, and to take care of Zora! When given the choice between blogging and knitting while she is napping, I most often choose knitting. Definitely never cleaning!
