View Full Version : Baby stuffs - short snort and twin set

06-12-2006, 10:26 AM
I've had this short snort done for a little bit (OK, like 2 months), but I've been too lazy to weave in the ends. Jackie inspired me to finally get off my arse and finish...thanks! :blush:

- It was made with Caron Simply Cotton, or something like that. I lost the label.
- Pattern is Short Snort (http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/ShortSnortTank.pdf).
- Since I didn't exactly get guage, it used US 5 Denises and did the math to go with this yarn. The plastic thingy in the middle is from Wal-Hell.

The pic of my little monkey is the best one I could get - she's home sick today with a cold, so we're not in the most cooperative mood. Don't mind her crazy hair, it always looks like that.

A friend from work is preggers with twin girls. I made her this set:


- The pattern is my own - I just made it up as I went.
- I used Rowan Cotton Wool...soooo yummy. The only thing about it is that I blocked the hats twice and my stitches still look uneven. Granted, I was making these hats in the car, so that may be why my stitches look so bleh. :thinking:

Awh, I like your Short Snort - your daughter is adorable!! :inlove:
Isn't that a cute little pattern? I had someone ask me recently where I got mine because she said it looked like something from a matching mother/daughter set. It is a pretty glam little top, isn't it?!

I like how the colors are opposite on the twin set to distinguish between each child - good idea! :lol:

Oh, it's all so sweet! :D

I have that same problem of getting cotton things to look good when I block them. My stitches, too, end up looking uneven. :??

Thanks, everyone! The projects were fun - the short snort was a quick, easy pattern. I was just lazy about finishing it off.

And, yeah, the monkey has a few curls. I love her little afro. ;)
