Stitch Markers


Here are some stitch markers I made. I figured I'd post them in my blog to see what you like, which ones you want (if any) before I make the trip up there. Of course, the trip would be worth it as I would get more yarn LOL.

Anyway, the pic with the 2 sets are the dragonfly ones. I couldn't find the normal charms I use, but I did find the ones I used (obviously). I had to get a little creative!!

The others have charms on them, similar to the ones you have already. I think they all came out beautifully :) Let me know.

The dress...

I am very into coming up with things in my head to knit, and then knitting the item. This dress pattern of mine started out as a top, but evolved into a dress. This is my latest, knit out of Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran, superfine merino, purchased at www.woolymonmouth.com (best local yarn store!!!). I also did a cute little ruffle. I'm working on the belt, need to do the adjustable straps and the undersoaker.

The colors are actually a little different irl, a pretty sage/celery green with a lighter shade for the trims. Hope you like it :)

Outfit for Shay

So, I ended up making an outfit for Shay to give as a baby shower gift. I knit a dress, a soaker/bloomer and a bolero. The natural trim was knit/crocheted out of alpaca and the body is knit using an alpaca/silk blend. The colors are natural and an eggplant purple...unfortunately you can't tell the colors real well.

The outfit was a huge hit...loved by everyone. It's going to be submitted to Oprah as the best baby gift ever!!! Can you believe it?? Enjoy the pics.
