Harper’s New Cardigan

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

My friend Amber and her husband welcomed home a beautiful baby boy last month – Harper Levi.  I couldn’t pass up the chance to knit him a little something and when I saw Pamela Wynne‘s Ella Funt pattern (Rav link), I knew it would be perfect!

Welcome to the world, Harper!

Surprise Visit

Baby Kai came to visit us at work yesterday and look who he brought along with him!

Sooo cute!!  (And Herbert is lookin’ good too!)

Long Overdue

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

These last few months have just FLOWN by and I am so behind on so many posts.  So without further ado, here are some long overdue photos of the awesome weekend workshop I took at the Textile Center back in March, entitled Artful Knit:  A Sculptural Approach to Knitting taught by Adrienne Sloane.

Babies, Babies Everywhere

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Several of my good friends at work are having babies!  Here are two little critters I knit up to help welcome home their new bundles.  First up, meet Jarvis the Jellyfish (Rav pattern link), knit with love for Baby Lucca.

Lucca’s mom has been asking me for a jellyfish since she saw rhymeswithfun’s Julius back in the day.  Jarvis now hang’s out over Lucca’s changing table and is sure to make diaper changes much more fun!  (Well, at least for Lucca anyway…)

Baby Quiba will be welcomed home by Herbert once he arrives mid-June.

Herbert was knit from the free Ribbit pattern with no real mods except that I only used fiberfill instead of the recommended tennis ball for stuffing.  Can’t wait to meet you next month, Kai!!

Hellooooo Herb!!

Introducing rhymeswithfun‘s loooong over due 2009 Christmas present….Herb!

Herb, named by ms rhymeswithfun herself, was knit from the Octopus pattern out of Hansi Singh’s amazing book Amigurumi Knits: Patterns for 20 Cute Mini Knits.  Look at those cute curly tentacles!

First Julius and now Herb.  What shall I knit for my favorite foodie next?  🙂

While I’m still working on some Top Secret Christmas knitting (don’t judge me), I realized there are a few unclassified projects I’ve been working on these last few months that I haven’t posted about yet.
