I chose Cotton Ease yarn because I didn't want it to be too hot. I did have to use a smaller needle size, probably because of the yarn I was using. I added a bit to the sleeves. After I sewed the top seams together I knitted across the ends of the sleeves for 12 rows then I switched colors and put a ribbed cuff the same number of rows as the ribbed part on the bottom. Then sewed up the sides and arms and Voila!

These are 2 of the scarves I made for Knitz 4 Vetz. It is a project for a knit shop called The Knit With. It is in Philadelphia. They are collecting scarves for wounded soldiers in a hospital in PA. Many of the soldiers have skin grafts so they are requesting all natural fibers in the scarves. These are made with Cascade 220 Superwash. It is a lovely soft yarn to knit with and to touch. After using this yarn I am spoiled. It will be difficult to go back to other yarns that are not as soft.

I did this this morning. The headband is wrapped with hot pink knitting ribbon. The flower is crocheted with 100% cotton yarn. I don't remember the brand. The pattern for the flower came from the book "Crochet Bouquet - Easy Designs for Dozens of Flowers" by Suzann Thompson.

I haven't put any new pictures up in a while because I have been busy making dance revue costumes. But, I did manage to finish this white striped prayer blanket. It is knitted diagonally just like a washcloth. 12 rows of white then 2 rows of a different color. It is a prayer blanket for the St. Ann Sewing Seams of Faith.

This is a knitted hat with a spiral brim. I got the pattern here: http://helpinghearts0.tripod.com/id7.html
I had a little problem with it. I cast on 80 stitches like the pattern says for the adult size. For the brim to make the spiral the pattern has to move over one stitch on each round. If you cast on 80 it will move over 2 stitches. You have to cast on a multiple of 6 plus or minus 1. So I did 79 stitches and it worked fine. If you want the spirals to go the other direction cast on 77 stitches. The only other problem I had is that 6 inches from the beginning to start decreasing is too short for an adult hat. I had to go 8 inches from the beginning before I started before I started to decrease. I used Red Heart Soft and size 8 needles.

Keep the wind out of baby's ears! These earflap hats are crocheted with soft acrylic yarn. A tie under the chin to keep it snug. These are newborn - 6 months, 6 - 12 months, and 12 - 18 months. They can also be made for older kids and adults. Low price right now only $10 each.
Here is Bryan wearing his red vestments. We both like the silver trim instead of gold on the front of the red. The red fleur-de-lis on the sleeves and bottom of the alb are really nice with the red chasuble. There is also a stole, which he is wearing but you can't see, a Chalice Veil, and a Burse that all match.

I thought I would try making my crocheted dish cloths a little smaller than I used to. These are about 5 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches. I think the smaller size will be very efficient. The colors I have right now are Hot purple, red, lt. blue, yellow, tangerine, psychedelic, mod green, purple, and hot pink. Just for now I am selling these for 4 for $5.
