anything goes items for Joel
The socks are "Baby Cable Socks" by Diane Kostecki and I used Merino Magic for them as well as the hat ("Ashton") by Maxcine DeGouttes, a free pattern on ravelry. I somehow lost the original progress pic of it so took this to show it finished other than weaving in the ends. :) The 2 projects took 44 gms of a 50 gm ball which is 105 meters. The hat reminds me of a Hershey's kiss and was a lot of fun to knit.
The tiny mitts are "Newborn Norwegian Sweet Mitts" by Jennifer Hoel (free on ravelry) and took 6 gms of Patonyle (about 23 yds) and HOURS to knit. Cute, but yikes! I mailed them to Cheryl who told me they fit Joel and are keeping him from scratching his face so the time was well spent. Not going to make 1/2 dozen pair like I originally intended. LOL
