It had been about six years since I had done any knitting and I forgot how much I enjoyed it! I was even able to finish the sweater I started six years ago in between getting more knitting done for Chase! Well shoot, I guess I didn't take any pictures of the two blankets I knit? Confused I knit a small crib blanket with a variegated yarn that had a teddy bear pattern in it. Unfortunately the pattern really didn't show with the variegated yarn and I guess since I was disappointed with it I didn't take any pictures? Rolling my eyes. Also didn't get a pic of the car seat blanket I made! Again, not very large, just enough to cover Chase on those chilly mornings in Maine. I designed it with a large "buttonhole" for the car seat straps to thread through but evidently it's too much of hassle? Emily has reported however that it quickly became Chase's favorite blankie. Thumbs up So these are the next two sweaters - one made with the leftover variegated yarn from the crib blanket and a sweater and hat with the leftover blue yarn from the car seat blanket.

Chase was wearing the darker blue sweater when they picked me up at the airport over the holidays - wish I had a picture, it's a great color on him with those rosy little cheeks! Lovey dubby
Looking for more projects to knit I found some leftover yarn from a vest I made myself a long time ago - another sweater/hat set for Chase! The color is really bad in this photo but it's a nice "boyish" navy blue and green variegated yarn.

With cooler nights arriving in Maine an emergency request was received for mittens! I actually made three pairs but only have this photo of two pair with a quick scarf I made for Emily, again with leftover yarn from previous projects.

So by this time Emily's already thinking ahead to Christmas and reminded me that Chase was going to need a Christmas stocking! Rolling my eyes. My grandmother knit stockings for all my children so I had to keep up the tradition. Lovey dubby Looking for ideas for the stocking I decided to make Chase a festive hat for the holidays as well!

It fit perfectly and see how cute he looked at the tree lighting ceremony...and he was wearing one of his new sweaters too! Lovey dubby
