Since I always post on facebook, this blog tends to get neglected. I'll try to work on that. I've been knitting a lot. Bug is very much into the Legend of Zelda video games these days. She really, REALLY wanted to be the main character, Link, for Halloween. Between youtube, Goodwill and ebay (and some knitting - the gauntlets) we came up with this:
We're pretty happy with how it turned out. :)
Here's a side-by-side in case you're not familiar with the game. Bug won TWO costume contests for a total of $150 in gift certificates. That's a LOT of Pokemon cards!
I also knit a baby Link costume for my niece's boy. Super-cute.
With the cold weather approaching, I started knitting mittens. These are 2 layers of wool. It turns out that I need the larger size, so Bug gets both of these.
This fall I asked Bug if she wanted me to knit her a sweater. She did, so we sat down and looked at patterns and she loved this one. It was a lot of work, but very fun to make. I still need to get 2 buttons for the collar. (and better photos)
This hood/cowl was made for a friend, but Bug was willing to pose for a photo. I love this pattern.
