Little White Lie
So, I really have been very busy these past few weeks.. but, not busy enough to keep the needles away! Behold, completed surprise project #1. You'll have to go check out Alison's blog for more information on the special occassion. But, here it is, The Babykid Ruffles Shawl:
And, a blocking picture just so you can see what it really looks like...
Pattern: Babykid Shawl by Lana Grossa
Yarn: 6 balls Lana Grossa Babykid in pale pink
Measurements: Approx. 25" by 60", excluding ruffle
Started: December 3, 2006
Finished: January 8, 2007
Other Details: This was a nice project and I loved making the ruffles believe it or not! This project is knit on a US9 FYI.
Here is completed surprise project #2. Yes, its a monkey! This is the only picture I took of Lola (I had to name it, right?!), before it was gifted, so it will have to make do...
Pattern: Cheeky Monkey from Zoe Moeller's Knitted Toys
Yarn: Cascade 220 SW in #808 and #831, Rowan Cashsoft DK in a pale champagne pink color, Dale Baby Ull (used doubled) in white, Black felt
Measurements: This is a huge ass monkey! I didn't measure it before I gave it away, but it definitely came out a bigger than the pattern measurements. I used a US3 rather than a US2.
Started: December 25, 2006
Finished: January 13, 2007
Other Details: This was super fun to knit and came out so cute in the end. There was alot of face shaping that was easliy noticed with the peachy pink colored yarn I used, but its just too cute to care! I am so done knitting with pink and red for a while!
