Baby Booties.. and MORE Baby Booties!

My boyfriend has a friend whose wife had a baby about three weeks ago.  So I thought it would be a nice gesture to knit something for the baby… totally taking after my mom!!  lol  So I picked out a nice simple pattern for Baby Booties.  I was so excited to start this new and different project… I started last night around 11pm and finished one bootie around 2:30am this morning.  Well, everything minus sewing the sole of the bootie to the instep.  Unfortunately my blue plastic needle, that my mother lent to me, snapped in half last night — somwhere around 1am’ish.  😦  It was a good yarn needle while it lasted…

So while I was at work today, I thought it’d be an ingenuous idea to text message the friend of my boyfriend and have him measure his daughter’s foot… well the bootie was an inch too small!!  😦  So I put that aside and decided to start a whole other bootie, tweeking the directions, adding rows everywhere…. sigh, we’ll see how long this “nice gesture” goes.  lol  Here’s a picture of it!  Good practice though I must say.

My Very First Project

My First Project That I Did Three Years Ago!

I went over my mom’s house this weekend for Mother’s Day and dug out my first project, of which I made for her.  🙂  I previously mentioned this “object” that started out as a scarf, but then magically turned into an apron.  I still, to this day, do not know where those extra stitches came from!  :-O  But it’s nice isn’t it?  lol  Guess who inherited it?  Yes, I Did!  lol

Green Dishcloth

Okay, I finished the green dishcloth!!  YAY!  It came out nice I think, for my first one that is.  I need to work on having the borders and the edge of my dishcloths be the same all the way around — not tighter on one side and lose on the other side,making it look like a bowed effect.  Something to work on…. 🙂  Here’s the final project!!

Dishcloths & More Dishcloths!

GOOD NEWS!!  I started another washcloth and it’s perfectly within my limits of accomplishing.  lol  It’s made of garter stitches, purls, and only 1 YarnOver and 1 FrogLeap (aka psso).  So there’s a small challenge for me; something that’ll make me think and learn at the same time, but easy to complete.  🙂  I’ve also gotten a little bolder And started ANOTHER dishcloth!!  J 

Green DishCloth

This other dishcloth though is really easy.  It’s just made up of purls and garter stitches.  It’s called Wheatfields.  J  And both of these can be found on the link that I pasted in the second to last entry prior to this one.Now I’m able to make a list entitled: “On The Needle.”  YAY!!  Now you KNOW you’re an advanced knitter when you have more than one W.I.P. at once!  Lol  😉  I’m going to take pictures of both later tonight!.. as well as the purple coin purse I finished last week.  STAY TUNED!!

NEXT!!

Well, (sigh) I tried this one particular dishcloth the other night, of which turned into the biggest headache/frustration.  😦  After all the different purls, garters, yarn overs, slip-slip-knits, knit-two-togethers, and whatknots, you should have 6 houses that appear….. O_o   This magic trick definitely didn’t work for me!  😦  I think I have to downgrade from that specific dishcloth unfortunately.  So I’m starting a new one today that’s a lot easier.   I KNOW this will most assuredly boost my morale and spirits up again.  🙂  I’ll let you know how it goes!
