Comeback attempt

After a looong absence from blogland, I've decided to try this blogging thing again. I probably don't have many readers left out there anymore, but I'm hoping at least a few of you will find your way back here.

There wasn't that much knitting going on here during the fall, but I'm making up for that now. There's definitely a theme to my knitting at the moment. You can probably guess what we've been doing instead of knitting by looking at the pictures... ;)

Quilt (Square Counterpane with Leaves)

Yarn: Novita Tennessee

I only knit the leaves part of the square and used a much thicker yarn than the pattern called for. The squares are crocheted together, and I also added a matching crocheted border. I'm really pleased with the result.

Top Down Bonnet

Yarn: Madame Tricote Almina

The ears are too cute!

Another pair of Baby Booties to match the blanket above.

Modular Tomten Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann. From Knitting Without Tears.

Yarn: The green is Araucania Ranco Solid, and I used Sandnes Garn Lanett for the buttonband and cuffs. It still needs buttons.

I do have a few non-baby projects on the needles, but I'm saving those for another post. If you're allergic to baby knitting blogs (I know I was before), you'll probably need to avoid this blog until June. These little projects will be popping up in between bigger ones from time to time. Let's just hope I can keep going with this blogging thing. The laziness has been overwhelming lately!

You have been one very busy knitter. The blanket is just beautiful as are the other baby knits too. I look forward to seeing what else you knit too.

Don't worry, you still have readers. I love the blanket. I saw it on ravelry already. Very nice and I'm sure you'll get good use out of it.
