FINISHED KIMONO! Here it is. I have not sewn up the sides yet. I am thinking of weaving a ribbon through the eyelet area on the front--what do think? I also need labels for my handknits. I have not found one I like yet. I want something new and original; I am thinking of just creating my own with some cotton and a single strand of thread or floss--and some creative embroidery. Hummmm...sounds interesting.
Here is my next project to go along with the Kimono--its from this book which is absolutely gorgeous. It has the cutest and easiest patterns. I can really see making most if not all of these
adorable baby/kids hats. I am using a beautiful cotton yarn in solid pink with white accents. Like I said before I really hope that this baby turns out to be a girl!
Here is the pattern that I am using:
Isn't it great! I highly recommend this book to any new, intermediate or experienced knitter!
