Baby Outfits and Illness

I am positive that you have noted my lack of posts of late. I have been battling toxic nodule hyperthyroidism. It has left me exhausted with a general lack of concentration. I continue to knit on a limited basis for now. Actually I continue to tink more than I knit. I received good news early in September that my nodules were benign. I opted to be treated by radiation instead of  by surgical intervention. So if my blogging is spotty that is why.

 I did manage to complete a couple of baby outfits at the end of August for Tracey's baby shower on Sept 4rh. The light pink outfit was knit in Cascade 220 Superwash, colour#902. Pattern"5 hour Baby Sweater"  found at Bev's Country Cottage with a link to the matching bonnet by The Fiber Gypsy. The newborn crochet outfit is comprised of Carrie A. Piper's "Mermaid Flapper" hat, MADuNaier's "2 1/2 Hour Nap" cardigan and Lolly's Crafty Crochet's "Crocodile Stitch Booties". The entire ensemble made with a skein of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, colour Candied.

Owl Hat

Made by JoAnne for her grandson. I'll have to get the link from her as it fits size newborn to adult large and is very cute. FYI she will be making more to sell at her church's fall bazaar.
