Just because...

Just because I have nothing else to post about - I will show off a lovely picture of little Emily in the hat I knit. I decided to knit her brother, Josh, a hat also (twins - must match). The pattern for Emily's hat is Butterfly Hat. I had a hard time finding a pattern for Josh's hat and finally decided on the Nottingham Hat. Josh's hat, however, still needs to be knit since (so no pictures to post yet).

I ended up giving the bunny I knit to someone I used to work with. She loved it.

I'm still plugging away on the Anisette shawl. I'm almost 70% done - just finished my 13th pattern repeat. On Saturday, Lynn and I went down to the LambShoppe in Denver for their monthly Pajama Jam. We bought yarn for the Aurora Bag. I've already finished one side! The bag will only be for knitting when I can't concentrate on the Anisette shawl as I would like to have it done by the end of July.

Here's a picture of the Rusted Root top I knit for Julie's birthday. She looks great it in. I was thinking about knitting one for myself but who am I kidding. :-)
I've been working on a lace shawl for my friend, Bridgett. Her birthday is today and I thought I would have it done for her birthday, but...alas, once again - another belated birthday gift. The pattern is Anisette. I don't have very good pictures but I'll throw one in just to give you an idea of what it looks like.

Last but not least, I'm knitting a little bunny for a birthday gift for a 3 year old boy. I hope this turns out ok. My last attempt at knitting a toy did not go well at all. For his sister, I have a Butterfly Hat that I had knit last fall and didn't fit the recipient so I had to reknit a bigger version. This is a picture of the (first) small version.
