I made a wee bonnet -- I used one of my favorite patterns (the lacy bonnet from Knitting for Two) but I used fingering weight yarn and US2 needles instead of what the pattern calls for, because I was curious to see what size it would turn out to be. It's not super teeny tiny -- it would probably fit on a large orange.

Kim & Julie -- those are both lovely!!

I'm working on a burial gown. I'm having a bit of trouble w/ the pattern, though. Unfortunately, there are some mistakes in it, but I think the gown will turn OK, anyway. Hopefully, I'll have it done by the end of the day.

Julie -- Is that bonnet pattern online? It's so sweet!

On Sunday, I'm going to sit and knit with a friend, and I'm bringing yarn and patterns to work on these all day. It will add variety, and make me feel good, too.

Oh my GOSH, Julie!!! That bonnet is so incredibly precious!! I think all sizes will be absolutely needed and appreciated, so don't worry at all about that. That is just beautiful.

DotMom, I had major pattern problems with the baby pouch above and it wasn't exactly what I had envisioned, but I think it turned out okay and now I've moved on to a basic basketweave blanket which is much easier!

Julie, the pattern isn't online...it's in Erika Knight's Knitting for Two, which I'm reasonably sure you can find at your local library (since I don't have it checked out at the moment )

Isn't it a great side effect of helping others that it helps us feel better too? I can't wait to see what you make, Ingrid!

Wow, I rarely read the KAL thread because frankly I am such a new knitter trying to KAL is way beyond me yet lol
BUT! This I can do! I have tons of little stash and little projects are wonderful for new knitters.
I bet a lot of us are missing this thread, sadly.
I need an addy to mail to

Thanks!
Kath

Hi Kath!

I'm so glad you looked at the KAL thread and wanted to do this! Thank you! You have a good point that not everyone reads the KAL forum. Maybe if we post occasionally on the Whatcha Knitting thread and say what our project is for then people who don't read the KAL thread will hear about it?

I'll pm you with my address.

Or maybe we can be really sly and put something in our signatures for when we post in other threads? *laugh*

I was wondering what yarn I was going to use for these. I have a lot of dk Encore, but am concerned about the wool factor. I have cotton, but was concerned about the washability/dryability. I donated almost all of my acrylic to other knitting projects.

I was cleaning out my room and, deep under the bed, found a box containing
at least 2 dozen balls of Paton's Look At Me acrylic baby yarn.

This was meant to be!!
