The Madness Season

Some of the madness from my Thanksgiving weekend...

A green baby dress, made with Knitpicks Essential sock yarn and the ever-loved bone hook. So sweet, so tiny...0-3month size.

A little jacket, made with recycled natural wool singles from some thrift store sweater. This was some of the oldest yarn in my stash! Again, made with the tiny hook. This one is probably more like a 6 month size.

Another baby dress, made with some leftover dark blue fingering wool/acrylic blend. At least, that's what I think it is...I bought this stuff for 100yen a ball from a shop in Japan, quite the bargain for the amount of entertainment I've gotten from it! I used the same yarn to make a dress for a cousin's baby last year, and I still have one ball left that might make a hat. The bone hook was also implicated in this madness.

Last but certainly not least, I used two balls of Knitpicks Wool of the Andes to make a little Red Riding Hood cape, because that's what all the cool babies need. I had to use a bigger hook for this one, and I just sort of made it up as I went.

I'm working on one more little brown sweater now, but I think the compulsion is starting to wane, as I'm not feeling the need to stay up all night working on it. Maybe I'll even make a full-sized garment again soon!
