I've been knitting up a bunch of my "stash" yarn. Here are the treasures I've made:
A bath mitt that was gifted yesterday (with the striped sweater below) at the shower we had for Joanna. More on that later. I used Ann Budd's basic mitten pattern.The French Market Bag from Knitty. I didn't know about the pattern (it was published in my pre-knitting days) until I saw Abi's post about it.
Two baby hats from some sock yarn that looked better in the catalog than in person.
Look! I've made progress on the socks. Now is when I curse my size 10.5 feet...but progress is being made. It's just tedious. From this perspective you can see that I've completed the heel and I'm working on the foot.
And I found this little sweater pattern in a book Maryse gave me. It's a fun little knit.
