More you say?....

Last week I delivered 3 more Thorpes to Leslie. Did I say how much I love this pattern?Everyone must make at least one!!!Pattern: Thorpe (rav link) free pattern
Yarn: 100% Alpaca (double to get gauge)
Needles: 5.5mm

Julie's shawl is done. The original in the pattern is done in Dawn 2ply Lace, but Julie wanted this one in bamboo and on larger needles. It turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself. Pattern: Leaf Shawl (rav link) by Naturally reduced to 77 stitches
Yarn: Atlante 100% Bamboo by Naturally 50g balls -4
Needles: 5.5mm
Both can be purchased at The Needle Emporium.

And since I had 5 days off in a row for Easter I whipped this up for friends expecting their first baby next month.

Pattern: Babies and Bears (rav link) by Cottage Creations

Yarn: Beehive Baby Sport 85g-- 1 ball
Needles: 3.75mm
I love this pattern and I will definitely make more. The yarn was not my favorite (a little splity), but the colours won me over.

The thorpe hats are so nice - very cute! This has been in my queue for some time, and I really need to try it. But its starting to be warm here, and I don't think I'm going to want to make anything winter related now!
