I am done with the super secret baby project. It isn't in the mail yet, but I will show it to you anyway. I am getting a new niece in about a month. So I made her a sweater with a matching hat. I did not truly follow a pattern for either one. I think I can tell you just exactly how I "winged" both of them later on. I made a small flower to put on the sweater. I ended up not using the green one. It was a just too big.
|Oh no! Sideways again!|
The hat is crocheted. It has a fairly open weave to it. I followed part of a Lion Brand Pattern for it. The sweater is knit. It has a single button closure. Short raglan sleeves, fat yarn, big needles--quick knit! I love this sweater! Both are made from some leftover Lion Brand Homespun.
I also made a MONSTER! He's crocheted and I did not follow any semblance of a pattern for him. What do you think?? Little niece girl has a big brother so I figured he needed a present too. Making this little guy was totally fun. It's kind of like drawing a picture (I guess. I can't draw.). I started with nothing and just kept deciding what to add and how to make it. Now I want to make a little girl monster!
Side note: How do I rotate a picture in blogger?? Can it be done?
