WIPS: Various Updates and New Yarn

Well, my big knitting news is that I finished the baby sweater!  And it looks like a sweater! Please,  check it out here -- I'd love some feedback!  I've added a few rows to Catherine's poncho/cape -- this particular project sure is taking me awhile.

I've also added some yarn to my stash.  The purple yarn will probably be a sweater for Catherine.  (I'm on the lookout for an easy-ish child's pattern -- any recommendations?)

Catherine picked out a blue yarn for her giraffe.  I'm going to start working on this as soon as I put the computer down.

This green yarn is going to be a Yoda hat for Porcupine.  Again, I'm looking for pattern recommendations.  I have a baby beanie hat pattern that I like, but I'd like a pattern for the ears.  I like the ears on this Craftsy pattern, but I want to see if I can find one for free first.  (My hubby is a bit of a Star Wars fan, so I have to make sure that the ears are "right".)  

The yarn looks a little bright in this photo -- the above one is much truer. 
Be sure to follow my blog so that you don't miss anything!  I have an awesome hand dyed yarn giveaway coming up very soon, sponsored by Quaere Fibre!

  1. I love all those yarn colors! And a yoda hat sounds perfect for that green yarn. I can't help with the ears though :-)

  2. A friends made this yoga hat for her toddler ( it's adorable and free :). Good luck!

  3. I love crafting. I knit and crochet, not well but I do it and enjoy it. I love yarns and fabrics and can never get enough of them.

  4. Loving all the yarn, and I can't wait to see the giraffe...and the yoda hat (with a wee model wearing it, soon!). Chrissie x

  5. Oh the yarn! I love handspun and dyed yarn. I have heard a lot about ravelry and need to check it out.
