My 3yo had an operation over a month ago, so I've been in avoidance mode. So I have a bit of catching up to do on my FOs.......
Monkey Socks - These are nice, they were a bit tight on me even though I upsized my needles, so I gave them to Mum. The picture shows the colour fade on the yarn, which I was most disappointed in. I love the bright colours, it's not that I don't like how they've ended up though, it's quite pretty too.
Lovely pattern, love the lace repeat. I would like to try the No Purl Monkeys too.
Two dishcloths for Tracee in a Nappycino pay it forward swap.
Frankenstein from a Monthly Dishcloth KAL group:
Two pair of longies for Nelle: One pair for Silas, I did these with a curly purly waistband and put my increases on the other side of my marker, and also did a full gusset instead of a half. Probably my favourite longies I've ever knitted!
The waistband folds over to get more use from an extendable rise......
And one pair for River - I did the full gusset on this pair too and brought the short rows in each time on the bum, I think they fit much better that way (also did that on Si's pair too).
I did this cotton Tikki dress for Jessalyn, but Brielle wears it as a top now as I increased the bodice thinking the cotton would shrink on washing, but it did not. I put a little cable down along the front increases. I love this it's very darling and soft.
Being modelled by the cheeky monkey. God I love this little poppet, she's just amazing. Considering this picture was taken about a week after she had surgery to create a port in her appendix to do daily bowel washouts (called a MACE procedure), and had a foley catheter in her and all that, she's just amazing......but I digress.
Almost caught up.....gotta wait until some people get their stuff for the next pics :).
