Still knitting

Even though I knit every day, I’ve been a slacker when it came to taking photos. So, I have some catching up to do.

This is a baby afghan for a neighbor’s first great-granddaughter (she is SO excited!).

I finished this vest for my hubby at the end of our cold weather. He wore it only two or three times, but it’ll be there for next winter.

Then I made two pairs of fingerless gloves, in silvery gray and eggplant. I’m planning to do a church bazaar next fall.


My first bazaar

Even though last Saturday was a rainy day that kept some people away, I was pleased with the success of my first bazaar. I recouped my investment and made enough to register for next year’s bazaar, and also made a profit! I even have a special order for a pair of men’s gloves.

The photos show my table, a closeup of the rack that my husband made to hang the baby sweaters on, and a polar bear wearing a red scarf.

This is Teddy. He’s a tiny bear; his sitting height is 7 inches, and his standing height is 10 inches. He even has his own little red sweater. The tan and red yarns and the stuffing are completely washable.

Baby afghan for Lena

This a a shower gift for a baby girl whose name will be Lena. The color is called “Silly Sprite” (Loops & Threads “Snuggly Wuggly” yarn). I love the color!

Teddy bear T-shirt


This T-shirt has three teddy bear buttons at the shoulder to make it easy to put over the child’s head.
The pale yellow yarn has multi-colored speckles. The blue ribbing is actually lighter than shown in the photos.
This airy pattern makes the t-shirt comfortable for spring.
It would be cute on either a boy or a girl. The size is 18 months.

Vintage Baby Sweater

Blue Retro 1960s Baby Sweater

This sweater pattern is from the 1960s, and it’s still cute! With cables on its raglan sleeves, it’s a classic. It’s size is 12 months.

Starting a Blog to Showcase My Creations

This is my new blog to showcase my knitting, and this is my first post. I hope you enjoy seeing my creations.

I made this yellow baby afghan with a knitted “castle” for a shower gift. The new mother loved its uniqueness.


Knit Castle Pattern

It is knit of washable acrylic yarn and measures about 24 by 36 inches.
