On The Needles

In WindyCityKnits land, it is baby knitting time again. No, no, no, not for me, no more babies around here. But I'm knitting baby berets for my shop and for a cousin's baby shower gift. I just love the look of a beret on a baby and this cotton yarn I'm using is so cushy and perfect.

It's Been Awhile...

I can't believe it's been 2 months since I posted on here. Life has been busy:D

My WindyCityKnits Etsy shop has been doing well and I've added a few new designs. I'm taking some time now to knit for myself and I'm also designing some fall/winter knits as well. It's kind of hard to design warm wool knits in the summer but I'm trying to stay ahead of the game, ha:)  I'm thinking of soft, warm, wool cabled mittens and hats and some convertible glove/mittens.

Really enjoying spending time with my girls and the sunshine. I've also been trying to utilize my crafting skills around my home by sewing some napkins from my bottomless bin of scrap fabric and knitting reusable dish and wash cloths. The 7 year old is having fun helping with that too. I've found a very easy pattern for the napkins here:

Here are a couple of new knits from my shop:

Happy Summer!
