Here is my latest baby set, I think I'll still make some booties to go with it, but here is the bonnet and the sweater.

the bonnet pattern I found online, called a box bonnet.

I used that pattern stitch to make the sweater. I think the set is about a 3 month size, I plan on making another one in a "Take me home" size.

Well it seems i'm getting to the point that when I got back to try and make a pattern I've made in the past I can't remember the details of how I did it, So I think I will try to make more detailed posts here.

Below are the hat and booties I made to match the cream colored sweater.

The booties are done on size 8 needles,
K 10 rows garter,
Decrease next and every other row for the next three rows by K2TOG twice for the center stitches, alternate rows are K,
for the eyelet row: K1, YO K2TOG*, repeat across
then do the cuff in a K1, P1 ribbing until its about 2 inches

The Hat is the mock cable pattern but stopped an inch shorter for a smaller size head.

And here is the whole set together!

Here is my latest knit sweater creation! Its the same idea as the typical ones, but done in a K2TOG YO repeat. Unfortunately this stitch is a little wider than expected so the sweater seems to me to be a bit wide, but I still think its quite cute, and it works up in about half the time as the other ones. I think with a little more tweaking this pattern will be a keeper!

light blue scarf!

Here is my second of the "Ye Good Ole Cabled Scarf" pattern. This one I made for the grad student I work for, Yun. She really loved it!Up next is another baby blanket, Crocheted, and probably in the ripple form. Also a few more baby sets! I'll post the pictures as I get them made, things should come faster now, since I've finished my BS in biochemistry, and don't have much on my plate for the next few months!
