I guess it’s time, I do have to make the jump officially.  After 17,936 views on this blog…hang on I have to pause for that. 17,936 views on this blog, that’s amazing :-). Anyway, after that many blogs I’m  moving over to my official blog, with a proper logo and proper url. I do hope those that are subscribed will join me and those of you that are my lovely loyal readers will also come and move over with me.

From now on you’ll find me here: www.annatestadoro.com

WIP Wednesday

I’ve actually got something to show you today. I’ve started my biggest project ever, I think. A blanket that I’m knitting as a gift for an upcoming wedding (top secret :-)).

It’s knitted in squares, and in the last three days I’ve managed to knit 3. That was with not much time for knitting, so I actually think that I’ll be able to finish it by the end of August. I’m actually going to be making it bigger than the pattern calls for, but I haven’t quite decided on the finished size, I think I’ll just keep going with the squares until I run out of yarn. It’s quite handy each square uses up one 50g ball of yarn.

So, without further ado, here are the squares I’ve knitted so far.

And here’s the square I’m currently working on.

FO Collection

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2012 by annatestadoro

I wanted to show you a collection of FO’s that I finished  over the last 3 years. The first lot is a set of a blanket, bonnet and booties. I’ve not blogged about these separately yet, but will do so over the next few weeks. This set was made for a friend from school who wanted to give it to a friend of hers. She picked the colours as she didn’t know whether it would be a boy or girl, as a matter of fact I’m still not sure :-). I do really like the colour combo and I think it can work for either boy or girl.

The second set was made for a good friends baby boy, who is actually not a baby anymore, he turns 2 in September. It’s a cardigan, trousers, hat, socks and booties. I’ve blogged about some of these before, but can’t remember exactly when. I made them over two years ago. I remember using up some of the yarn in my stash, hence the different colours, but I do really like them.

And the last set is a jumpsuit and booties that I made for an ex-colleague. She was giving this to a friend. I made the same jumpsuit for Luke, and really liked the pattern.
