Recent Knitting Projects

These three items were completed over the summer months.  The first one is a small shawl that I knitted as part of my first KAL (knit along).   I used three shades of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine yarn.  I plan on giving it as a gift to my stepmother-in-law for her upcoming birthday.

I used some of the leftover yarn from the above shawl to knit this child-size hat.  It uses the pattern Selbu Modern by Kate Gagnon Osborn.  It will go to one of my nieces or great-nieces.

Same hat, but top view.
This Jester Hat by Bernat Design Studio, also child-size, was made using left over Patons Kroy Socks Jacquards yarn.

Beautiful work (of course :) Ramona.

I love that shawl. Colors so pretty. Hats are nice too. I am sure they will like their gifts. :)

Both my m-i-l and d-i-l knit beautifully. I should have one of them teach me to crochet ..start easier.

I don't know what it means ..but my m-i-l is always complimenting the tension in d-i-l's work.

D-i-l just made Mr seaSpray and me a cute bird's nest with 6 light blue robin's eggs all knitted. the yarn is the softest yarn a little hairy (don't know what you call it) maybe I will get a pic of it up sometime.

the eggs represent both sons and her and their 3 children.

She is big on knitting socks, sweaters ..all kinds of things. Once even created a dog sweater that a magazine paid her for the pattern to be put in their magazine.

Recently some baby and doll hats.

My m-i-l doesn't knit much now but at one time she and all her sisters did. And one sister ...always knitted a throw for people that were getting married ..like you do with quilts.

Sorry so long. :)
