I usually don’t wait so long between posts. I’ve been in a real “finish things” mode for awhile. In July I started a bunch of projects and it took me a while to get them all completed! So here they are!
Some duck feet booties for my nephew due to make his grand entrance in a month or so.
These were intense to knit! I struggled a bit in a few places – at one point I had four needles and two stitch holders being used.
But they are so cute it was totally worth it. If you’re feeling ambitious you can find the pattern here.
The next thing I finished was my August amigurumi-of-the-month. We named him Gus. Short for August. Short for Sir Augustus, General of the Dog Days of Summer. I used Ana Paula Rimoli’s amigurumi book again to make him.
Next up on the finishers list, a couple pairs of socks.
This pattern is called “zirkel” and it’s by Stephanie van der Linden. I used a 75/25 wool/nylon blend to make these. Since they’re stranded (two strings of yarn worked at once) they are double thickness. They will be so wonderful this winter. They look kind of wintery, too.
Then I finished these happy little socks.
The pattern is “Laurel Socks” by Wendy Johnson. These stinkers were so complicated! They look gorgeous, though. I think you can see the effort in the details of the socks.
Now my September amigurumi. A happy apple and his little worm buddy.
This one is another Ana Paula Rimoli creation.
And yesterday I sewed the buttons on a cardigan I actually finished about two weeks ago.
The pattern is called “Miette” and I made it with Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn, so it’s nice and light for late summer evenings. I picked out some cute buttons at Prairie Yarns that make it a sunny, happy cardigan. I really love it.
So it’s been a busy month! No time for bloggin’ – doing too much crafting!
