Project 4 of 52- Baby Bear

I started this bear in 2007 when I was pregnant with my second baby. I had a little boy, so it sat neglected in a drawer waiting to be loved. I decided to give this to my new niece. I really enjoyed adding girly details to this little bear. All the embellishments came from Nicky Epstein's Knitting on the Edge series.

Project 3 of 52- Summer Shawlette

I wanted to make something nice for my very dear Great Aunt Irene. She is 90 years old, but you'd never really guess it. She is spry and spunky and someone I cherish very much. I chose a nice little shoulder shawl with faroese shaping. I made it out of a pretty silk/merino blend. This was a fun pattern and a nice, easy introduction into faroese shawls. She loved it and said she would pray for cold weather.

Project 2 of 52- Summer Kerchief

It's finally summer here in Minnesota and that means it's time to work in the garden. My long hair is always getting in my face while I dig in the dirt. The perfect little solution is a kerchief.

Project 1 of 52- Anabelle's Baby Blanket

My brother and his wife were recently blessed with a beautiful baby girl. For my first project in my "52 projects in 52 week" quest I decided to make her a little baby blanket. I decided on the Teddy Bear Blanket from Crystal Palace Yarns. I used some durable acrylic yarn for easy maching washing.
