A Blankie for Charlie!

I have been knitting this blanket for sometime now...and I guess its taken so long because its summer. Its so hard to knit in the heat. Plus there is so much to do! This is a blanket for Charlie, my friend Ling is having a baby and I will present her with this blanket at her baby shower. I have some left over yarn so I might make some booties or a small hat.
I really love this border... its just a simple seed stitch but it makes the blanket look so cute! I have an other friend who is also preggers and I plan to make a blankie for her baby as well, maybe next time I will try something more complicated.

The Case of the Giant Sock!

So I got this sock knitting book from my sister for Christmas, The Big Book of Socks ( and I have been scared to knit socks for some reason mainly because of this...
Does this look like a ladies small to you? I guess I need to use sock yarn lol.

Tie Me Up!

Here are four lovely tie up hairbands I made this week.  The top one is a simple lace pattern. The second from the top is an double crochet stitch. The red one is a simple lace pattern with 9mm needles (4mm for the tie ups). The white one is the same lace pattern but using 4mm needles. The grey, blue and white one use a chain with a size 5 crochet hook for the tie up, the red one uses 5 stiches ribbing with 4mm needles.  
I love hairbands.
