Booga Bag

This was a Christmas gift for my sister, Grace. It's made from two colors of Cascade 220 (a pink and a peach). I might make a bunch of these for Christmas this coming up year, since it was very popular! And yes, the handles are a bit lopsided. Apparently I was drunk when I installed them, since they looked even at the time!

Haiku Baby Sweater

This was made for Aaron's new nephew, Benjamin (before he had a gender or name!) The pattern is Knitty's Haiku in Lion Brand Homespun. I wasn't thrilled with the buttons, but I couldn't find anything better. Hopefully it'll fit him when it starts to cool off next fall (it's probably about a 12 month size). The first photo is modelled by the illustrious Teddy before the buttons were added and the second is with the buttons.

Bobbi Bear

This was a Christmas gift for Aaron's niece, Elise. I used the Blue Sky Alpaca Bobbi Bear pattern and added a little tutu to make him a ballerina bear! I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick rather than the bulky alpaca, but I'd love to do one in Lamb's Pride Bulky and try felting him. Great pattern.

Irish Hiking Scarf

Made for Aaron's dad, Norman, from the Handpaintedyarn.com merino, this is a modified Irish Hiking Scarf with two cables instead of three. I wish I would have bought an extra skein, since it turned out a bit shorter than I expected. Really nice and soft, though.

Janet's Scarf

This scarf was made for Aaron's mom (yes, they all got scarves for Christmas!) out of a variegated purple Manos del Uruguay. The stitch is a modified faggoting stitch.

"Cozy" Scarf

This is a scarf made for Aaron's sister-in-law, Jennifer. I used Plymouth Outback yarn and two repeats of the stitch pattern from Knitty's Cozy.

Kim's Ab Fab Throw

I bought the Colinette Ab Fab throw kit in the ivory colorway to make this throw for my friend Kim's wedding. It was definitely a fun project and relatively quick for the size of the finished blanket.
