Tales of a Perfectionist

Life is more than a quest for perfection, a lesson I'm learning day by day.

I know I haven’t posted anything recently, and I’d like to say I spent all my time knitting.  I spent a little of my time knitting, and more of my time frustrated with WordPress.  There’s nothing wrong with WordPress, I have just experienced quite a bit of user error.  But onto the knitting…

I made a pair of baby pants for a friend.  The yarn was hand dyed with easter egg dye.  I was trying to create a yarn that would have short color repeats and no pooling of color.  I think if I had knitted this in any other size it would have.  This is the first pair I have made using the Adorabubble Baby Britches pattern.  If you are looking for a pattern for baby pants I highly recommend this one.  Melanie has created a unique gusset that doesn’t require grafting.  Someone commented that the color pattern looks like ripples from a rock dropped in water.  Even though they didn’t completely meet my vision I like the way these pants turned out.  Unfortunately, they were lost in the mail.



I actually started these socks at the end of April and finished them sometime in May, but didn’t take a picture until August.  They are 100% superwash wool boot socks custom made for my husband.  My second pair of completed socks!  I used the Bernat Socks for the Family pattern.  Its a free pattern but you have to register and log into their site to view it.

    What??? Lost in the mail. Oh, that is just not okay. What a bummer. Do you think it counts to just send the picture, and it will count as the gift? I hope so.
