Lots o’ Cables

Posted by 2ton Inspired on March 20, 2008

This project has been on and off for a few weeks. I chose it because the final product will look adorable plus I thought the cable ribbed pattern would be interesting enough to hold my attention. Unfortunately it hasn’t. I’ve got about 8 more inches to go (16 inches total so far!) I can’t say much about this except for it’s a baby item for a friend.

Last night I kept telling myself I can keep going and then got sleepy! Knitting never makes me sleepy so I think it’s time for an instant gratification project (like making the Saartje’s Bootees last weekend wasn’t soon enough!).

I’ll probably start working on something Easter related for my nephews. Egg cozies or little bunnies. Kind of last minute but I tend to work well under pressure! Zakka Life Crafts has these cute Bunny Egg Cozies that I think would look adorable in a small basket of eggs. Neatly Tangled posted a pattern for bunny heads that she says were popular with her kids. (Ok so she calls them Bring Spring Bunnies, but they are just bunny heads!)

    LOL. I didn’t want to call them bunny heads because I thought it sounded weird, so I made up a goofy name. The kids really do love them, though. šŸ™‚ And I’m more than ready for spring, lol! Thanks so much for the link. šŸ™‚
