I have made a small dent in my MASSIVE unfinished knitting projects pile! I finished a sweater/dress I had been working on. It is modern wear and it is intended for wear with leggings.
The photo with me in it isn’t a good one. But you get the idea.
Need some control top undies with this!
I had a lot of wool left over and I was in desperate need of new mittens.
I knit up a pair and then decided I wanted a fluffy lining for added warmth. So with a crochet hook, I filled the inside with “fringe”.
Once I had the wool hooked in, I split the strands up.
Once that was done I had a Muppet mitt!
Flip the mitt right side out and I have a woolly mitt.
I have lost two pairs of mitts already (and it is only December!) so I put them on a string and now, like all six year olds, my mitts hang out of my sleeve on strings when I take them off. Second childhood….
I blame it on being an empty nester. No little bambinos to dress in cute little outfits. And because I had boys I’ve never had the joy of cute little dresses. So this Christmas, I went nuts and hacked up a babies dress and made a dress for my fur baby.
I think she looks adorable!
I was hunting in a thrift store with this very project in mind when I found a Christmas red dress with hearts and dogs on it. Destiny!
I’ve made some progress on my modern sweater dress. I’ve decided on 3/4 length sleeves and I am knitting them both at the same time on one set of circular needles. I started at the cuff edge and I’m working my way up.
