Hedgehog Knits

Adventures in knitting from the eastern edge of Canada.

Hmm. I just found out that people have been trying to post comments to my blog, but apparently I had the "moderate" option turned on, and they were unable to post. I have no idea where the messages that were "pending moderator approval" have gone - I've certainly never seen them. I just thought that nobody liked me!

Anyway, I have figured out how to disable the moderation, and should finally be open for comments. Please, feel free!

Here's a little pre-blog knitting. I knit this last spring for friends who were expecting a baby girl, and moving to Yellowknife at the same time. I just received pictures of the little girl, who evidently still has a bit of room to grow in this sweater! I've cropped the photo for the sake of privacy.

The pattern is Devan from Knitty (size 6-12 mo), which is quickly becoming one of my favorite baby patterns. I've done three of them to date. I forget what brand of self-patterning sock yarn I used for the front, but the back and button bands are Sheepjes Invicta. The great thing about sock yarn sweaters for babies is that they're machine washable and hard-wearing, yet still soft and warm. And warm is important when you live in Yellowknife! There are so many great sock colour combinations that you never really do the same sweater twice. The two earlier ones I made were shower gifts in more unisex blue and green shades.

What am I up to lately? Lots of secret Christmas knitting and fun with Kool-Aid dyeing. Photos to come soon!

Grrr. I've got to see if I can track the lost comments down and rescue them. It's nice to have visitors and to know that they've actually been here!

Blogger has been an, um, learning experience!

Hi Kelly, I just "found" you through Jo's blog. Love the sweater out of sock yarn! :0)

Hi Charity. Welcome!

The Devan sweater is a really fun pattern. And I'm easily amused, so watching the colours knit up is endlessly entertaining :)
