Monday Abundance

People were very productive over the weekend.

Stef came in with this darling little Super Mario Mushroom that Emily designed. It's made from a bunch of Shepherd Sock.

Sam is wearing her latest FO. It's a Zephyr Style pattern knit from our Green Line Worsted in Chagrin. I noticed that it has the same reverse stockinette striping pattern in the sleeves as Emily's shrug did last week. The ones on the shrug are a little wider, but they are fundamentally the same idea. Coincidence or trend??

It has great little buttons too. Some say Paris and others London. I couldn't for the life of me get a close up of them. My camera is smarter than I am today.

Next up are Caitlin's color work mittens. Wow!!

The pattern here is cobbled together from a bunch of different things she's seen around. Numbers from one place, animals from another, palms from yet another etc. Regardless, these make me feel like quite an underachiever.

Speaking of which:

This is Simplest Sweater for Every Baby. I made this over the weekend while I sat in front of the TV trying to get over whatever bug I caught last week. I know it's not fancy, but when I'm not feeling well, mindless garter stitch can be just the thing. And I finished something which gave me a sense of accomplishment. After three days on the couch, I really needed that.

Oh those mitts! I too am clearly an underachiever in the face of those mitts!

Hi Anonymous,

The pattern is called Simplest Sweater for Baby. It's one of our patterns designed by Lorna Miser and has directions for both knit and crochet. I did alter is a little by adding the placket. The yarn pictured here Shepherd Sport in 208 Edgewater.
