Thing that I have been knitting this summer... with lots of pictures.

Here are some things that I have finished since the last post:
My sweet little girl who loves frogs :)
             This pattern was so cutely named Ribbit by Susan B. Anderson.  I used some Blue Sky Alpacas organic cotton that I had in my stash.  Susan is the master of knitted toys & all things cute!  I really love her work.  The organic cotton yarn is super strong & comes in loads of colors. 

Next, is a sweater that a friend had me knit for a baby shower gift.  I had been dying to buy the book 60 Quick Baby Knits, and being asked to knit this sweater was the perfect excuse!  The book is full of adorable patterns all made from Cascade 220 superwash.

Love the pea pods & tendril details at the top of the hood.

Remember this lusciousness?

 Well, here it is in sweater form!  A true luxury yarn, Madelinetosh (color: winter wheat), came out perfectly in my Climbing Vines Pullover by Joelle Meier Rioux.  The only thing that I changed was the sleeve length due to yardage constraints.  I also need a picture while wearing it, but the summer weather has not been cooperating, and I just wanted to post it now.

A special post about what I made with this yarn coming soon!  Real soon ;)


  1. You are amazing! Those are just gorgeous, such a talent.

  2. Seriously, the details in your knitting just leave me in awe. The froggy is beyond cute. The peapods in the sweater are to die for cute. And the trailing leaves on the oatmeal colored sweater are perfection.

  3. hi, I bought the book to knit the pea pod baby sweater. I am disappointed that the instructions do not include the sweet edging that is pictured on the made up sweater. Would you please point me to instructions as to how to do the edging on the sweater as pictured. Thank you.
