So this Friday I actually have something to show you, amazing huh? In fact, I have 4 items to show you. Yes. FOUR.
If you read my posts earlier in the week, you'll know that I've been working on a pair of Baby Booties and a pair of Baby Mittens. I am very pleased to tell you that I have finished both of them!! Wanna see? Of course you do!

My next finished 'object' is actually the biggest project of the week (and actually the biggest project I have ever done!), a Baby Hat. (Can you see a theme going through my knitting this week?!)
For the hat, you must cast on 80 stitches (that took... forever!) and 1x1 Rib 8 rows. That was a real challenge both to my knitting ability and my patience. I ended up frogging it a total of 4 times before I got it right. Now though I can easily say I am a confident r
ibber, ribberer person who ribs. After the rib, I had to garter stitch until the piece measured 13cm, (which was about 29 rows) and then I had a lot of decreasing to do. As I couldn't sleep I finished off the hat at 2:30am!
So there you have it. My Finished Objects of the week. I do hope you've enjoyed looking at them, I know I have enjoyed making them! Before I leave I just wanted to share you with a cute picture of Lilo I managed to snap this afternoon!
I thought the hat on its own was a bit boring, so I dug out some Yellow Double Knit Baby Yarn, and quickly knitting up a flower and sewed it on. Would you like a closer look?
I am extremely pleased on how it turned out, my folks are really pleased to! So pleased in fact, I've been commissioned to make them each a hat for the winter.
To make all these turqouise baby gifts, I used a 100g ball of DK yarn. And after finished all three projects, I found myself with this much left!
After much delibiration, I decided to make my Mum a Mug Cozie. She has been begging for one ever since my Knitted Mug Hugs book arrived. Here is the mug hug so far:
The pattern is very easy to follow, but I do have one problem. To make the buttonhole, the pattern says as follows: "K2tog, K3, yrn twice, K2tog, K2, k2tog." I'm not sure what 'yarn twice' means, could anyone please explain it to me? Thank you :)
The last finished object is a pair of purple baby booties.

Have a great weekend everybody!
