Baby Knits

I told myself that when I finally got my blog up and going I'd post every day. I mean, I'm at the computer all day every day anyway, so what's the big deal about jotting down a few paragraphs right? Roooiiiiggghht. Sheesh. I blame some of you for making it look so easy!

Today, I got nothin'. There's alot going on that would be tedious to try and write about and even more boring to read about, so I'll take the easy street and post a few more of my most recent knits. They're all baby socks using free patterns from the net.

I realize good picture taking is very important if you're going to blog, but I'm not a very good picture The ony decent light I've found in my house is in front of my computer screen. The only willing subject I've found to hold my knits as I photograph them is Garfield, but you knitters will appreciate that Garfield is a cat in sheep's clothing. Next time I'll get a picture of more than his head so you can see what I'm talking about.
The top picture is of some preemie hats and blankets I did last year for a preemie knit charity drive. The hats fit perfectly onto an orange. Can you imagine such a tiny little head?
The very first socks I ever knit was using the pattern below. When I was first learning to knit, I bought Amy's KnittingHelp Cd-Rom. She takes you through every single step of knitting the sock. Watching over her shoulder as she knit, stopping to pause as needed, made it so easy!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Don't be so hard on yourself, girl. You'll get into the swing of it and it's easier.

Those are cut hats and booties! Too cute!

I wish you lived in CT and could come over and teach me to knit socks...I have only done tube styles as I am WAY intimidated by the whole heel.

yours look great!
