I will post pics of some of my purchases, but meanwhile, I am posting some items that I have either finished knitting or am in the process.
Fingerless Mitts: I find that they are used more in the spring and summer when the office has gotten so cold because of the air conditioning. My co-workers always want to borrow mine, and they are the wrong color, so I made her a pair of her own to go with her red sweater that never leaves her shoulders in the spring and summer while at the office.
The bank is consolidating some of it's functions into one location and therefore a co-worker lost her job. She loves bunnies, so I made her this little cutie.
My garter-toes socks. I love this pattern!
I've also been working on a Baby Bunny Toddler Dress. Baby Bunny is wonderful yarn to work with, it feels so wonderful, like knitting with butter.
Although I'm knitting to gauge, it's turning out a little bigger than I had anticipated. It was meant for an 18M old, but I believe she will have to grow into it.
I've also cast on for a shrug for me, a very lacy lightweight shrug. Now I don't normally go for a shrug because they typically scream "look at the girls" and I don't need anymore attention there, but I tried on the LYS store sample and it was lovely, even on me. So I purchased GGH Soft Kid at half price (even better) and cast on. The pattern is relatively easy to remember and it's usually not bad as a visiting knitting, although you do have to pay attention, yarn-overs and K2G's and all that. Well, as you have deduced, I made an error and it went into time-out until i could tink it in peace and quiet. I have now tinked and will resume the knitting. But here it is as it stands now:
I've also cast on for a couple of summer tops for me. I will post about them separately.
