First is a Milo. I'm actually making two. One for each boy, but I've only started on Cael's. He's 4 now, but I cast on the size 3 as that is what he is measuring out to be. I'm going with a grey theme for both. Cael's will be dark grey on top with grey and a multi grey stripping all the way down. And, instead of doing a cable I'm going to do a half linen stitch. I think it'll blend the sold and multi really nicely and just give good texture. For Liam's I'll either do a dark or light grey top and I'm going to incorporate some teal multi in there somewhere. Most likely a stripe. And, his will have the half linen stitch as well. He will be an 18m or so. He's a big guy!
198 Yards of Heaven. And, it certainly was! Right now it looks like something a toddler would wear. It's soooo tiny. I added extra to the lace edge. I still have a wee bit of yarn left to use on a trim on matching fingerless gloves. I'm going to block excessively and hope for a nice size to just wrap around my neck. The yarn is sinful. I've had it for over a year and I was just waiting for the right project. The colors match my new coat perfectly so it was a pattern/yarn/garment match made in heaven.
A Knights Costume. This is for Cael for Christmas. It's a "chainmaille" tunic and hood. It looks a bit big and stretches like crazy. But, I think it'll work and goodness knows kids grow fast. We will get him a wooden shield and paint it blue. (probably from etsy) And I'll make him a sheath to hold his wooden sword that he has.
I have so many knitty plans for the next months. I'm bursting with ideas and excited to have so many things already done for the holidays.
*On a stash note: I'm not sure if I ever posted here that I wanted to use mostly stash this year. It was kinda a new years resolution. All my knitting has certainly waned my collection of yarn. I'll need to look at exact pounds used. But, I do know this. I'm down 1.5 drawers and at least 1/2 of a large rubbermaid tote. That is crazy!
