Being a joiner

It's funny how things work out sometimes. I had just recently read about Project Spectrum and decided to join at the very beginning of April. Despite showing up late to the party, it turns out all my knits in March & February went along with the theme anyway! It was fate.

I feel like I've had these knits done for a while, but things have been too busy to get pictures and all that jazz. But without further ado....

Project: Jaywalker socks for Ms. Dolan
Pattern: Jaywalker Socks
Yarn: Opal in Flamingo
Needles: size 2dpns

I really like the way these came out. Much better than my first pair by sheer fact that they're all of the same yarn. Which by the way, I really like the yarn too.

And now..oh, the baby knits. I am expecting a little niece in June.

Project: Ruby Red Baby Booties
Pattern: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Booties
Needles: size 5
Yarn: Knitpicks Shine Sport in Cherry
Alterations: I did a ssk, rather than the sl1,k1,psso that the pattern calls for. That method looked neater to me.

I had to take a picture on my hand for scale so you can see how teenie tiny & cute this things are. Freakin' adorable.

Project: Cherry Baby Sweater
Pattern: February Baby Sweater, from the Knitter's Almanac
Yarn: KnitPicks Shine Sport in Cherry

I actually bought this yarn for another project entirely, but it wasn't the shade of red I had in mind. It's rather bright, which you can kinda tell from the pictures. But babies need bright colors.

Again, for scale. I can't believe there's going to be another person in my life this little again.

Many more baby knits to come, I'm sure.
