I made Fetching for Laura’s birthday present. The yarn is Moda Dea Eclipse 60% extra fine wool / 40% nylon in Linen (2551). I had to do several modifications to get them small enough to fit her 6″ wrists. I used size US 5 needles. I also only cast on 40 stitches (instead of 45), which got rid of one cable repeat around. I did a 3″ thumb gusset instead of following the pattern’s thumb instructions.

I made Ruby for Haley. The yarn is Lion Brand Microspun 100% micro-fiber acrylic in Ebony (153) and Lily White (100), and Patons Brilliant 69% acrylic / 31% polyester in Radiant Red (4942). They were knit on size US 3 and US 6 needles. I made the 3-6 month size and she’s 5 months old now. They look a little stretched in the picture because we tried them on over the socks she was already wearing.

I’m not sure how I feel about the finishing on these. I might redo it.

I made Panta for me. It’s a Finnish pattern someone on Craftster translated. The yarn is Mountain Colors Bearfoot 60% superwash wool / 25% mohair / 15% nylon in Moose Creek, knit with 2 strands held together on US 5 needles.

Joanie’s Camera Case

I finally made the camera case I promised my friend Joanie for her birthday 2 years ago. There was no pattern, I just got the measurements of her camera and went from there.
