FO: Knitting from Holiday Season 2014 to Now

In the past year, I haven’t been able to post much due to a very hectic schedule.  It’s strange how life will suddenly get so busy that it is dizzying thinking of the things to do and see.  Despite the busy schedule, I have managed to knit a few little items here and there.

FO: Baby V Love

What is a better way to start a new year than with a baby and some hand knitted gifts?

I knitted up one adorable blanket, a newborn hat, a baby bonnet, and two pairs of baby booties. Most of these patterns took less than a few hours to knit and turned out so lovely.

Plus, an adorable baby wreath that can grow with the baby was crafted up for good measure.

FO: Kindness for Baby Karmen

I always meet people who share my name. This is what happens when your parents name you a popular name. I share my name with several good friends, a friend from law school, and one very lucky lady who is due to have her second little girl.

These are the little things that I made for Baby Karmen and my friend.

FO: Baby Gifts Galore

Besides working on the super secret elopement, I have been knitting away at baby things to gift.

A sailboat pacifier clip, a pair of cute blue booties, and my favorite blue blanket were gifted to Z’s former boss and his wife.

The set was almost too cute to gift.

A cupcake pacifier clip, the Xs and Os pacifier clip, and a matching blanket were finished up to be a baby present for a friend to give to her former coworker.

One of my favorite pacifier clips ever!

The variegated yarn matches the cupcake pacifier clip.
