The Woodland in Spring set is almost done, just the elastic waist to put in and the socks to knit up. I have a skein of Selkie by Mosaic Moon to knit into another newborn set for the same customer so I will do the socks and waistbands at the same time. I imagine both sets will be ready to ship by late next week.

I am waiting for some cream 3ply purewool to use as the trim with the Selkie newborn set so I worked on the Barrel of Monkeys longies as part of a trade. I plan to work on the legs a bit today.

Just got back from a weekend away so I have more pictures to add, but this is the picture from Friday. I finished the Woodland in Spring longies, during the trip I weaved in my ends and grafted the crotch gusset -- I haven't put the waistband in yet (forgot to put my elastic in my knitting bag for the trip). More pictures to come!

As promised the start of the Woodland in Spring longies -- this is the first time I have knit this colorway and I am very happy with the way it is working up. I am so glad I ordered more of this colorway when I had a chance! In this picture I am just beginning the gusset I imagine I will be either done with the longies tomorrow or close to it. But for now I am heading to bed early (as hard as it is with the great Women's Beach Volleyball game going on -- go USA!)

The Mosaic Moon Kettle Dyed Rainbow with black longies and hat are done and drying right now. I snapped this picture just before I washed them, when they are dry I will thread the drawstring through.

I also started another newborn set this time on Mosaic Moon Woodland in Spring -- pictures to come soon!

The Blue's Clues inspired longies are ready to ship, these will be heading out to their new home tomorrow with the mail lady.

The Mosaic Moon Rainbow with Black longies are done, I should have the hat finished so these can start drying tomorrow. Hopefully they will be ready to ship by the end of the week!

I also received some yarn today for a trade. This is dyed by WWbN on Black Berry Ridge 2 ply merino the colorway is Monkeys in a Barrel So look for this to be knit up soon!

I began work on a small set yesterday. These are done on Mosaic Moon's Kettle dyed rainbow with black on BFL aran. The colors remind me so much of the Arabian Nights colorway by MM that I knit about a month ago -- there are just fewer jewel tones in it and a bit more purple. Very pretty this set should be really pretty when it is done. It looks a bit wonky in the picture because I am just about to split for the legs.

This newborn set will be heading out today. It knit up beautifully, I ended up using some scrap cream colored yarn for the booties because I was worried I would run out -- when I finished the ties for the booties I had about 12" of yarn left! This set knit up beautifully and I hope the mama's like it!

First I have the gallery picture of that hat, this is heading out to Canada tomorrow.

The Blue's Clues inspiried longies are finished and will be washed and lanolized tomorrow, so they will be ready to ship. Here is the front with a yellow house.

And the back with a paw print on the bum.

Forgot to add this picture! This hat is done and will be heading out to the mama on Friday. My daughter is upset she is in love with this hat and desperately wants one but with "a blues clues mailbox on it" -- she has recently decided she is my design dictator! I will do an official picture outside tomorrow but wanted to get this up so that mama could see it with the tassels (which I adore).

Here is the finished hat for the longies set. Now I am working on a little surprise.

And here is a picture of the progress on the paw-print for the Blue's Clues insipired longies. Nothing too exciting but hopefully by tomorrow it will look more like a paw!

Here are the Blue's Clues longies I am just about to start the green grass on the bottom.

And here is the longies for the newborn set, this picture is a few days old I've grafted the crotch and weaved ends since the picture just no time to post them lately. I also started working on the hat and should have a picture up soon!

Oh and the colorway on this is "Fox and the Owl" from iCrave on Hyena Cart. It knit up beautifully and the hat is coming along nicely as well, this will be an adorable set when it is done.

I've got a bit behind in posting lately but that doesn't mean I'm not knitting!

Here are the Blue's Clues inspired longies just waiting for my long 7's to be freed up so I can begin magic looping the legs.

Next I have the newborn set I am working on, not entirely sure of the colorway or the dyer (I have to remember to ask the owner). I am about half way down the legs, sometime tomorrow I will be done with these and moving on to the cute matching hat, and if I have enough yarn a free cute pair of booties as a special gift to the baby. I'm not sure why but I just can't bear to think of newborns in their cute matching sets barefoot.

And last something I have been working on during the day lately and finished weaving ends tonight a hat using about 2 ounces of yarn a customer sent and some black merino I had on hand (thanks Kimi of A Twisted Stitch). Tomorrow I will get the tassels on and then block them before they head over the border to their new home!

Here are the outback longies ready to ship! They will be heading out today.

I started working on a set of custom longies inspired by Blue's Clues, I should be ready to split for the legs by today. These will have some custom embellishments added with duplicate stitch once they are finished. I am very excited to be working on these.
