I've Got Knits!

I am itching head to toe for knitting.  It is like an infestation and I can't knit fast enough.  Problem is the faster I knit the more mistakes I make (the yarn I am using splits very easily).  I don't think I will knit another adult-sized garment for a little while . . . they take too long for gratification!  But then again, crafting something is as much about the journey of creating as it is about the finished product.  If it weren't, then why do we hop onto the next project so quickly?

So my next knitting project is for children.  I am borrowing this book Baby Beanies and hope to make a number of these happy hats soon.  Have you knitted any of these beanies?  Being a beginner, I have just discovered that 10ply yarn is not readily available in Australia.  I've gone on http://www.ravelry.com/ but I am lost and can't seem to find an affordable supplier.  So I will have to adjust two of the beanies to 8 ply methinks.

Then I hope to knit this beautiful number from Harumidori Designs (photograph taken from this website)

Have you knitted anything by Harumidori Designs- her designs look so lovely!

I can't wait to tell you when I get to start these projects and show you my photos!  If you have knitted any of these, please write a comment and tell me what you think or how you went!
