ah, the last minute. May 12, 2008

i sincerely hope that i am not the only one who finishes knitting presents at the last minute, taking pictures on the ground in the driveway of the baby shower or making excuses to go home and wrap a gift before the party. if i am, i will be very sad! : )




this baby hat was knit in a hurry the day before the baby shower. you’d think i knit something amazing and wonderful from all the comments that i got… sometimes i love non-knitters! ^^ i still haven’t mastered (or even figured out) the jogless join. i am starting on a pair of striped socks for me, so i’m hoping to understand it better when i have wider stripes to work with. i guess we’ll see!





i made these for a friend’s birthday. she loves stationary (i do, also) and i knew she would like them and appreciate the work that went into them. i just love how they turned out… i knit the little hearts and sewed them onto notecards, then decorated them with various things. i might have to do this again. it was hard to sew the hearts on straight, but i think a little bit of glue on the back might help for next time.


i also knit a pair of cinderella socks for my mom for mother’s day, but i haven’t had a chance to take pictures. i am getting behind with everything! school is out and i’m at home, but i have been working part-time doing wallpaper removal and painting and it just sucks the energy right out of me! for more details about my projects, please see my ravelry projects page. i hope everyone had a wonderful mother’s day!!

    The baby hat is very cute :) The note cards are awesome. Very clever!!

    I bet you’re glad school’s over for the summer :) My son had his last class today and next finals and then graduation…I can’t believe it.
    He’ll be working at school for the summer, but we will see him more than we have been, which makes me happy :)

    Enjoy yourself…have fun!!!

    The hat is so cute – but the notecards – love them! You should sell them on Etsy!

    No glue on the notecards, that’s cheating! :-)

    Seriously, though, those are nice. Too nice to use… :-D

    Very cute hat, and LOL, and yes I can admit to finishing some FO’s at the last minute, but not that close – the driveway!!!
    Love the cards, very sweet idea.

  5. Oh my gosh, those notecards are adorable! And yes, I’ve been known to still be weaving in ends on the way to a gift recipient’s house!!!

    Love the colors on that hat! The stationary is so pretty; your friend must’ve been so happy to receive them :)
