August Socks

This is just a quick little post to share a picture of my socks that I knit for my self challenge to knit one pair of socks each month this year.  These are my socks for August!  I really like the colors in these.

Wait til you see the crazy colors I have for the next pair!

Some Finished Projects

I shared some in progress pictures earlier of some crochet baby blankets I was working on.  Here's the finished items.  I thought they came out great and I liked this picture so much I decided to make it my main picture for my pattern listing.

In addition to these I was also asked to make a lapghan for donation.  This was made with worsted weight yarn and worked up beautifully!  I hope the recipient enjoys it :-)

Now I've been asked to make a couple more of the baby blankets so I will be working on those.  In addition I have completed a couple of rompers and am working on sweaters to go with them.  As soon as they are done and have the buttons sewn on I will share pictures of those too!

Have a Great Day!

Crochet - Hurray!!

Wow, ok so what have I been up to?  I've been knitting socks, designing a knitted baby hat pattern and working on crochet baby blankets that were ordered.  Here are some quick pictures to give you a gist of that all has been keeping me busy!

Socks - I'm still working on my monthly sock challenge and am doing great so far.  Here are my June socks.  I'd show you the July ones (which are finished) but they are blocking atm.

Cherry Blossom Socks

I've also been working on a design for a knitted baby turban and have finally completed the pattern.  Look for it soon in my Peachtree Cottage Etsy Shop

Peachtree Cottage Baby Turban

I also received orders for 3 Avalon blankets.  One as a lapghan (I'm doing that in green and yellow) and two for babies, one in blue and white and one in pink and white.  The blue one is done and the pink one is in the works!  Here are some pictures of them in process.

Til Next Time!!!

May Socks

My May socks are done! These are a ladies size medium (7-8) The picture doesn't quite show the real color. They are a very dark midnight blue! #knitfromstash2015

I've decided to start taking sock orders so if anyone is wanting me to make them a pair of socks just drop me a message :-)

What To Do?

So the other day I went to one of my local yarn shops to help a friend with a crochet issue.  While there I glanced around and stumbled across this yarn that I just fell in love with!

It's a very soft baby DK weight yarn.  The overall tone when looked at from a distance is a rosey peach.  I snatched all of it up!  I have 6 skeins (over 1000 yards), plus 3 skeins of a coordinating rose I can make just about anything I would want to make with it.  However, I can't decide on a project :-(  So I'm looking for suggestions.  Any idea input would be appreciated!

More Socks!

I'm still working on the Knit From Stash Sock KAL and knitting up a pair of socks each month.  What I've found out so far is that I *LOVE* knitting socks!  They are a quick, easy to take with you, project which makes them great for stitch-ins (or waiting rooms, etc.)  Here are the socks that I've made since the last time I showed them to you:

April 2015:

The design for the May socks is really pretty and I'm itching to get started on them!!  I've also nearly completed one of my previously posted "sneak peeks" 

Til next time...Don't get tangled!

Knitting Sneak Peeks

Knitting, blocking, tatting...and watching the rain...this is how my day is going. It's actually quite peaceful smile emoticon I have finished the socks for this month and they are blocking as I type this (I'll post pictures when they are dry). I've started 2 new knitting projects, sneak peek pictures below. Can you guess what they will turn out to be ? ‪#‎peachtreecottage‬‪#‎knitsneakpeek‬
