I had been working away on my Twist Cardigan, but have completely lost interest in finishing it. So instead of finishing the sleeves, I decided to dye some wool for a gift I’ll knit for our school’s principal…
Jaggerspun Zephyr laceweight dyed with Jacquard acid dye #610, Burgundy
This will become a shawl for a great woman, hopefully in time for Christmas.
I also decided to knit up a couple of little gifts for doctors in our lives… First is for the kids’ dentist. I love her! She’s excellent with the kids and so is her staff. They’re always willing to work with us and I would recommend them to any parent with young kids in need of a pediatric dentist.
Pattern: Tooth Fairy Pillow [Rav Link] by MyFairKatie
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver in White, very little
Started and finished on October 15, 2008. Very fast knit. And very cute, too. He measures ~4.5″ tall and 3″ wide.
And for my Gyne, who has the best sense of humor…
Because who doesn’t need a bright pink uterus? The last time I saw the gyne, he asked the typical questions about type of contraception we’re using, etc and I reminded him that we had to do IVF to get the babies we have, so there is no contraception use, his reply was “Oh, the pull and pray method, huh?” Oh yeah. 🙂
Pattern: Womb from Knitty, Winter 2004
Yarn: Cascade 220 scrap, held double
I finished this little thing during the second half of Survivor into CSI last night, making it a 1.5 hour gift knit. WOOHOO!
I’ve begun working on the very odd, but very fervently requested items to be knit for my daughter’s preschool teacher and her assistant. With luck I’ll be able to post on those very soon. Don’t go holding your breath on that… our school auction is Nov 14, so the frantic attempt to create lots of display boards will be getting underway very soon. I forsee a lack of knitting time in my near future.
Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you back here soon!
