Summer Knitting (aka Boring Post).

Knitting and running are my way of meditating / clearing my mind. I sure needed a lot of meditation last summer while both kids were driving me insane. Add to it hours of sitting in a car on a way to upstate NY, Vermont and Canada and back and I have plenty to show for it.

Dress / Vest
Love this pattern although it took me many hours and a lot of ripping until I was happy with a size.

How many of these skirts can I knit, you ask? As many as the number of friends and cousins Julia has.

My favorite hat pattern.

I wish this jacket pattern came in Julia's size.

I used a skirt pattern for a doll and modified it into a toddler size.

Instead of giving a present to a friend when her child was born, I gave it a year later. Never too late for a hand knitted present, right?

The cutest pattern I came across so far. Had to make it for a baby in our family.

Since I was away and had no other yarn, I used the leftover yarn from a turtle to make a sweater and a vest. Not the best yarn to use for the clothes, but it's a machine washable which parents with babies appreciate.

Easy pattern, had to make it. Next time I'll add some stripes, so it doesn't look so boring.

I'm almost done knitting something for David. I need to dry it in a dryer in order to shrink it a bit. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it'll work and I'll post a picture of it next time.

Have a great weekend. If this rain ever stops, our weekend will be filled with soccer practice, soccer game, ice skating lessons, apple picking, drum lesson, swim team practice and going to a local carnival.

Having received one of those hand-knit skirts for Mina, I can vouch for how gorgeous they are. The pictures don't do them justice. They're really lovely! Time to open up an Etsy shop!!
