Projects in Progress

::Projects on our work table or needles.

Katie's projects

I finished the Pebble

And then Abby saw it when I left it on the dining room table and she dropped by. Ah well, no biggie. It still needs buttons of course, so it's not really finished. I'll probably be sewing them on in the car on the way to meet the baby. 

I came up with an awesome, easy way to add beaded designs to my upcoming Baby Moccasin Boot pattern. They still need the leather wrap ties, but here's a snapshot to show you where the design is headed.

I have to say, these are pretty cute. The pattern is currently being tech edited and I'm hoping to release it soon. I'm very happy with this design- almost everyone who sees the tiny boots squeals in delight- and they aren't even on any babies yet. A super-cute pair of boots on a sweet baby? Over the top.

Today I've been knitting a bunch of samples for the next part of the How I Felt series. I'm really excited about this project. Rather than showing the techniques I want to share on a scrap of felt, I'm going to give away a free pattern for a clean, modern accessory then show six different ways to add color, texture and interest. I bet you can guess what the pattern is for when you see the image- 

I've got two more to go and then on to the fun part- felting and embellishing.

Laura's projects

After a few weeks of no knitting I've been itching to get something new started-today I began a shawl for a friend:

The pattern is LaLa's Simple Shawl, and the yarn is Crazy Zauberball. The pattern is easy enough to memorize, and of course it is so fun to watch the colors change as I knit.

My little boy bunny is finished-please don't be scandalized by his lack of pants...just haven't gotten that far yet. He is sitting on our long awaited window trim-also finally in progress!
