I'm having so much fun with knitting lately! :cheering:

The baby hats are made with carons simply soft, carons dazzleaire, and adora(the fuzzy looking hats).

Pocketbook slippers. (http://www.geocities.com/knitwits_heaven/pocketbookslippers.html)

Fairly easy pattern too. Only took me about 1.5 hours per slipper.

:shock:
...and I thought I might actually be able to resist knitting these immediately.

From the look of the pattern, you adjust the number of stitches in the 2x2 ribbing section to make a longer or shorter slipper - do I have that right?

Yes. They do stretch quite a bit though.

I'm thinking that you could increase 4 or decrease 4 if you wanted to alter the size of them.

Like how they say increase until you get 22 sts on the needle, I'm thinking that you could increase until you have 18 or until you have 26 sts on the needle. You'd have to play around with it a little bit though.

Wow Jenelle, you're just a knitting fiend! Great stuff!

Did you get the Adora at Big Lots? I picked some up there too! LOL I haven't done anything with it yet though. Does it take about one skein per hat?

Is the preemie blanket in Bernat Baby Coordinates? That looks familiar. That's what I started (and have yet to finish) my very first knitting project with!

Yes I got the adora at Big lots. It takes half a skein to make a hat.

And yes the blanket is made from Bernat Coordinates. I have 6 skeins of it and I need to get most of it used!

Big Lots has YARN?! :shock: I rarely go there even though it's right around the corner, but I'll check it out! I also found 2 local thrift stores and posted a wanted message on freecycle! :cheering:

Yup, big lots has yarn. I grabbed 16 skeins of the stuff, and that's a lot of yarn! They also had some weird cotton blend yarn and some novelty yarns.

Thrift stores are awesome to get yarn from. :thumbsup:

You've been busy! Everything looks great. I'm in love with Simply Soft, it's my favorite acrylic.

I'm not sure I needed to know that!

Nice stuff! I love those pocketbook slippers... funny they don't look like slippers in the first pic but look very comfy in the second one. I think I need some of those! (my feet are freezing from the air conditioning at this very moment) :rollseyes:
