Wrist Warmers

First knitting project I had to do in school was wrist warmers. I had to draw three designs and then knit one of them.

Well, in general I’m pretty happy with them. It’s my first project with 1,5 mm needles 😀

Teddy bears

When my daughter was 1 month old, I made her a teddy bear. I found a pattern i liked from Debbie Bliss book “Teddy Bears: Twenty-five Irresistible Designs for Knitted Bears

So i chose the pattern and yarns that I liked. Bear is knitted of G-B Wolle Bio-Bamuwolle. Shirt is made of leftover yarn.

When I was expecting my second child I decided to let my daughter choose the pattern and yarn for little baby’s teddy. She chose a pattern from Debbie Bliss book “Nursery Knits.” And yarn… well it’s Katia Mali or Katia Pima Cotton, I really can’t remember. I guess I should fill my ravelry project info page better next time.  One day I will embroider eyes and nose on this teddy.

To be honest I didn’t like to knit those patterns very much. There was a lot of sewing. Actually I changed the first teddy’s pattern a bit so I didn’t have to sew that much. But with the second one I followed the pattern exactly. Won’t do it again 🙂

Baby blanket for my son

I really enjoy crocheting baby blankets. Well, in fact it was second crochet blanket I’ve made. The first one was for my daughter. This time I decided to use 3 colors – white, yellow and blue (turqoise). I love the result 🙂

The square pattern is from a book of crochet squares. I took it from libary and can’t remember the title and author. I used crochet hook 3,5 mm (E) and DROPS Baby Merino yarn (colors 01, 04, 32).  Squares are crocheted together in last row.
