She Knits Not

OK, that's not true. I've been knitting a lot. I've got this for my brother and his wife's not-yet-born baby:



And this -for the same baby:





And this (this picture isn't me or mine -mine is in the "almost done" phase):

And several pairs of these -for friends' babies:



But nothing for Christmas. Nothing. I think this year I'm giving myself the pleasure of knitting for other people on my whim. Of course, if I'm not knitting, I ought to be buying presents, which I'm also not doing. But that's another story, and it will be rectified, I promise!

Are you the 000-1 queen? These are so adorable! What yarn did you use for the sweater? It is just too cute.

Brown Sheep cotton fleece -on 6's. Never fear! The booties are on 1's or 2's -whichever I found first. The shawl is sport weight wool, but knit on 8s so that lace has room to open up. The blanket -well, that was insanity. It was knit on 2's in stockinette stitch.

I love the peace wear for the baby. So sweet. I'm hoping I get to see the shawl sometime.

Beautiful work, Andrea! The baby wear is far too cute.

That peace sweater is just the most beautiful thing....

Andrea - this is beautiful work - you are one talented knitter (from someone that took four years to finish a sweater)
