Finish Everything on Your Plate....

Or you won't get dessert!



I am so ready for dessert, but I still have bits and pieces on my plate. It's been tough doing all of the finishing on my knits, but I'm getting there. These gloves have been done for a while but needed weaving in of ends and all that. Finally, my second Breakfast at Cafe du Monde Gloves. Love them. Made them for a friend, um... they were meant to be a Christmas gift, but well, this is how it goes sometimes.


Knit in Elann Peruvian Baby Silk and used less than 2 skeins. It was so difficult finding matching ribbon, I finally settled on a pale salmon organza. The contrast is knit with Knit Picks Palette since they didn't have the cream color in Baby Silk when I bought the yarn.

Also, I redid my Stripey Slouchy Beret in Knit Picks Swish Superwash merino. It's a great yarn actually, at a very reasonable price. This hat was inspired by a picture of a Louisa Harding hat, but I just winged it the first time and finally double checked my pattern. The pattern can be found here. The flowers are from Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers knit in Austermann Smaragd Classic.





Since I've been working on a Blythe wardrobe, my ever thoughtful gem of a daughter bought me 2 dress forms for Blythe. How cute is this??


So much has been happening but once again, I've been away for so long. I'll get to everything else later. Let the creative juices flow!

Such cute, little gloves. They may even be cuter than your first pair. I love that you have little mannequins to showcase your knitted goods.
