my knitting album
Hi!

I have finally made it to put some of my knitting into pictures and some of the pictures onto the internet. I now have an album (started) that I will add things into as I go.
But I wanted to share the status of the day and show what I did. Mainly the pieces that are in the album now were made between February and middle of April and are for my new niece who is just SUCH a cutey!
I made more in January and have been knitting a lot since then. As I said: more pics will follow.

Comments are welcome and here is the link:

Holy moley! You've been busy! Such a lot of adorable knits!

I wish my kids would crank it up and have some more children! I've got 10 grands, but none are babies anymore! No one wants to have more than 2 kids these days. Not like us, where a family with 3 kids was small, 4-5 kids was average, 6-9 was big but not unheard of! The days of double-digits was way before my time, and prolly before the pill, too!

You've really knit a lot of very nice things! Thanks for sharing the album with us!!!

Hi Artlady!

Yup, knitting for babies is so quick and fun. My niece is the first family baby for both my husband's and my family. She lives in the US and was born in November. I didn't get to see her until easter but at the first of January I dug out my knitting again (after long absence from it) and started a hyperactive phase
the rest of my stuff I partially have to take pics of or dig them out.

I will enter more here later.
(my own shirt, sweater, jackets and so on).

@dturner:
Thanks. I have been told in the US that the pieces look very "European".
I partially used left over yarn I had and partially robbed my LYS that became a good friend place again.
the patterns are mostly from magazines I get here in Germany, but partially completely altered (the flower-blue and grey jacket in the beginning was supposed to be white cotton, 1 color and BIG flowers crocheted onto it. But the raglan cut was great. And so on.

Currently I do a loose fitted summer shirt with big holes for myself and a tight knit jeans blue cotton pullover with big cables for myself. both lie on the couch and happily come into existence.

What beautiful projects! The clothesline is a great way to photograph them.

Hi bambi!

thanks to you to. It feels good to show those things around since I won't have much of a chance to see the little girl in them (she lives so far away).
I saw pics in good pattern magazines where they had things hanging on hangers off of chairs, on baby beds, on hooks somewhere. And I thought, the line would just be perfect. The beautiful hangers my mother in law had around made it all together. and the used wooden pins.

You have one lucky little niece! Every one of those little garments are so cute, and I love the stuffed toys too! Great job!!

thanks you two!
I found that the knitting helps me to rid myself of the stress. So helping the baby to look cute and stay warm helps me to come down, be happy and watch TV without being bored (which I would be other ways).

I have made more toys, too. I will have to take pics, I know. I will let you know when they are in!

the bear with back pack is from Laura Long "Irresitible Toy Tales", very cute book!
