Knitted Gifts - Post #96
We are a little slow to join the bandwagon here at LGS, but better late than never. Kiki made this Kitty Bed for Lily for Easter. It is the perfect size for her littlest pet shop kittens.
I jumped on the bandwagon by knitting this Booga Bag for Lucy for Easter. I made it miniature by using Knit Picks Palette and smallish needles & cut the recipe in half. Just the right size for all those stitch markers she's been making.
Kiki also made these cool wristbands for the girls. The above is part of the Jaywalker pattern made with the mysterious green hand-dyed yarn from Interlacements at the Scottsdale Yarn & Fiber show. It was a "Dyers Special" which apparently means they aren't even sure what fiber content it is.
Lucy's wristband is made from Optimum DK and is Kiki's own lace pattern (coming soon to a bandwagon near you).
Speaking of Kiki's lace patterns, she sent this scarf (her Eleni pattern) to our dear friends in France, Ippolyti & Eleni. The yarn is Baby Ull by Dale.
Kiki also made these cute socks with Ippolyti's name on them. Cascade Fixation of course.
I made this hat for Ippolyti (modeled by Lily).
It has a swirly top. It is some wool we had. I made up the pattern.
I also made Eleni this felted bag. I used the extra yarn Illanna gave me with my Fish bag.
I put this photo of Ippolyti in AZ on the bag.
And closed it with a fancy button.
Kiki can't decide who to give this gift to. It is kool-aid dyed boucle. Maybe she'll keep it for herself.
This pretty pink hand-spun yarn is a gift for me. Kiki spun it from a bat purchased at Tempe Yarn & Fiber and made by Stephanie. It was supposed to be a gift for Illanna, but she was usurped! In Yo' Face!
Lucy made this pillow case for her friend's birthday. She stitched this cloud
and knit this fair isle swatch to put on the pillow case. It says "Hello World".
Back to the bandwagon, we've all joined our first secret pal exchange. We joined the One Skein one. We formed teams Kiki & Lucy vs. Steve & Lily. We love the book, so this should be fun.
Remember we have a big surprise coming up for post #100, this is #96. Hopefully the next ones will come quicker than this one.
Meanwhile. One more gift to report. I surprised Kiki with this new wheel on Saturday. We got it at TYF. It is a Kromski Minstrel. Kiki is still trying to decide a name for it, any suggestions?
Coming soon - post #97 & #98.
