So, I'm "stuck" indoors. Cold weather and ice....that's a good reason as any to knit and knit some more.
I got new knitting needles for Christmas. Addi Clicks. I love, love, love these needles and I've been giving them a pretty good work out.
I have a baby shower to attend in a couple of weeks for a baby girl due in early April. The mom-to-be likes hot pink and zebra colors for her theme.
I used some Caron's Simply Soft from my stash in hot pink. I think that the color is called "Strawberry". I used my Addi Clicks and size 10 needles. I need to sew on a button.

I also finished a set of Mother & Daughter hats for my daughter and her toddler daughter. I used Vanna White yarn in the color white.

Yep, the hats need buttons, too. I'm waiting for the weather to improve, so that I can get to my LYS with my daughter and select some matching buttons.
My youngest daughter asked if I could knit her some fingerless mitts? (You know that you have to keep those fingers out in the open and out in the elements no matter how cold it is. One has to keep texting.) Can I? Yes, I can and did. I used Vanna White's yarn in Silver Gray.
I did the 1st mitt via the Magic Loop method and I followed the pattern.

I like the look and the feel of the 2nd mitt, so that I'm going to re-do the1st one on DPNs and work the thumb like the 2nd one.
As soon as I get buttons and get them sewn on, I'll take pics of the baby sweater and the hats. I'm also researching different methods of sewing buttons on knitted items.
