FO's & a lazy Sunday

Wow, time flies when you're knitting up storm!

The first is the ribbed baby hat for a friend's baby boy. I'm trying to work thru my stash of Plymouth's Fantasy Naturale. I love this yarn---it knits up quick, is soft & there are so many pretty colors!

This is the little jacket I made to go with the hat. It's knit in one piece, very similar to the MDK baby kimono & knits up quickly! Right now it's blocking & waiting for the button to be sewn on (I placed it on the sweater just for the picture)

Next we have the little booties--BEYOND quick! I had them done in an hour & a half! I need to figure out what ribbon to put thru the teeny eyelits.

And last, but not least, my Jayne Hat. I was in Atlanta over part of Labor Day weekend with 2 friends who were at Dragon Con. We saw lots of these hats & Lisa asked if I could make one for her. Of course, I said yes & had it done in a day. I'm waiting to see how cute it looks on her!
Today we're being lazy---Hunter got up with the Wee One when she woke up at 8 & let me sleep in until 930! They had cinnamon buns for breakfast so I fixed myself Eggs Benedict when I got up. Hmmmm, hollendaise, bacon---what's not to love?? I'm working on my brother's socks & actually need to do a load of laundry. The Patriots game isn't on tv here so I'll be Pats-less today. *sigh* Oh well.

Cute little sweater. Have you tried Margaret Hubert's pattern. It is knit in one piece and is very fast. You only have to sew up the side seams. She also has a cute hat. I have made both several times. You can find it on Ravelry. By the way my son is stationed at Ft. Benning.

I agree, the Fantasy Naturale is a wonderful yarn. I just finished a baby blanket, hat and booties using baby blue.
I haven't knitted for a couple of years (long story I will not tell right now) but I am way back into it.
I am going to finish up some old projects now. I need to buy a camera to take some pictures and will post them.
