Projects

So now that I have a niece coming in July, and I have some more money to spend of things like yarn and knitting needles, I'm looking for some projects.

I want to make something for Isolde (the name of my soon to be niece), and I'd like to make something for my Sister-Friend Hennifer's little girl, who will be one in July. But I have to find just the right patterns, and yarn. I'd rather not got with the traditional pink for girls, but I do want colors and patterns that are very girly at least for these first projects, because I haven't had girls to make things for before now. Any ideas? Things you think their Mom's would like, both of them are still too small to really care too much themselves. (Hennifer, what do you think?) Any good locations for free knitting patterns? Good inexpensive yarns? Suggestions for more expensive yarns but good for babies? My creativity is zeroing out right now, but I really want to make something. Help! :)

I don't knit so I can't offer advice on patterns etc but for colour schemes how about something in a light green with pink or yellow or even white/cream pattern around the cuffs or bottom (if it's a cardigan). I think this might look pretty and summery. Good luck anyway :-)

Thank you for the comment. That does sound pretty. I found a yarn that creats it's own stripe pattern that I might get, if I can find the color I want at the store. I've also found a little jumper that will be cute and can be made in several sizes. Of course I'd like any more ideas and suggestions that anyone would like to leave.

Post a pic when you've done :-)

Will do, if I ever get started I'll probably post some "in progress" pictures.
