Baby Jumper and socks

While I was ill, I had over a week with no stitching or knitting at all, then I began to feel as if I should do something. The brain wasn't working too well, and I knew I couldn't really concentrate or stick at anything for any length of time. Knitting is the perfect solution.
This set took a little longer than normal as I just couldn't keep it up for any length of time, but the finishing touches were completed yesterday.


I was so proud of my crocheted button border and loops. I'm not sure if they are correct, but it certainly does the job and it stays buttoned up, so I'm happy.

My crochet skills should improve in a couple of weeks. I am booked in to do an hour session to learn how to follow patterns and to do finishing on knitted garments. Hopefully after that, I can actually make some crocheted items.

Now I am beginning to feel on top of things a bit more, I need to get cracking and catch up with a Round Robin and a mail art envelope. I've made a start on the RR, just have to see how much can be done over the weekend.

I have been looking for a good pattern for baby socks to knit for the oodles of friends who are pregnant. What pattern did you use? It's just what I'm looking for.

These are very cute - I did loads of knitting last year but not done any for ages. I do feel the urge to get the needles out again and I have friends who have just had a baby so have a good excuse. So many projects so little time!

Your knitted items are lovely. You really should have an Etsy shop or Art Fire shop to sell them. You knit quickly and beautifully. Glad you are feeling better.
