A few knit projects

Here are a few things I have knitted recently and not-so-recently:

This sweater was knit from a kit that I purchased through Mary Maxim. It is made with a yarn color called Bubblicious, in reverse stockinette stitch. It was fun to do and my daughter loves wearing her "bubb-o-wish-uth" sweater!

The striped sweaters were knit from a pattern I found in the booklet that came with one of those learn-to-knit type of kits that you can sometimes find at Michael's or Walmart. It was easy for a beginner because it has a boat neck collar so no shaping required, and the even stripes make it easy to sew the side and sleeve seems so they match. The mitten shaped pockets are a hit with the little ones. The dark sweater was a little more complicated, having an attached hood, a button placket at the neck and a pouch pocket on the front. My son loves wearing it!

This poncho was a favorite of my older daughter since she got to pick out the yarn herself. It was knit on really big needles with 2 strands of yarn held together in a simple stockinette stitch with regularly spaced increases. It was a free pattern I found at Walmart or Michael's. Sometimes those are the best!

This little baby sweater is so tiny and sweet. It was from a kit I bought through Mary Maxim and it is knit in one piece from the top down. That's the easy way to do raglan sleeves! These sweaters make such a nice gift for a newborn.

This little sweater pattern is one I bought from Halcyon Yarn. It has a ribbed hood and it zips down the back. Despite the blank look on her face, my daughter was really quite cozy in it!

These oversize mittens are our twist on the old stockings that were hung by the chimney with care! They are knit from a Mary Maxim pattern using Mary Maxim's own Titan bulky yarn. They are about 15 inches long and do they ever hold lots of Christmas morning goodies as you can see by the next picture!

Coming up next, I'll share with you some of the other things I have done with needles and hooks so stay tuned!
