A Great Baby Gift Thank You Photo

 Remember the poncho I knit for my work pal Abby? 
Here is Sloane staying warm in her poncho!
Details:
Sloane: adorable, doesn't sleep much ...
Mother: Nicu nurse Abby...adorable too
Yarn: Two strands of Koigu held together throughout. 
Pattern: Posh Poncho
Details: nice ribbed neck, 
steady increases in first third of poncho,
freelanced the fringe.
Here is another thank you photo from Lynn of her 
boys Mr. Whiskers and Teddy. 
They are adorable and still snuggle buds...brothers!
They were from our foster litter with Lucy Lou ....

There has been considerable knitting progress on two Trap scarves this week. 
The navy/maize is nearly finished.
The Cotton Brown/Red is nearly finished.
Some progress was made on the modular shawl. 

I have to switch things up a bit....
my arm is a tad sore.  I love cotton yarn, but it doesnt give much.
Addi turbos don't help either, I need the 'give' in wooden needles. 
SO: 
I'm going to cast on for socks. 
Somehow socks on wooden straights never hurts. 

Final thought on this October Friday: 
I have to work on my Halloween Black Cat photo for this year.....
because when you love black cats...
well Tis the Season!

That is an awesome thank you baby photo. That kid is soo cute! What a great smile! I love the name of her cat, Mr. Whiskers. I feel like I should make up some kind of bourbon cocktail and call it that, ha!

I think I am like you Kathy in terms of aware of which needles and yarn make me sore or comfortable rather. I think I get aware that some combo makes me feel like I'm "fighting" with the yarn and that's never a good feeling. Here is to happy, relaxing knitting for you. Your traps are great.

I love it when people send Thank You photos! The baby is seriously cute in the poncho.

Knitting with cotton always makes my hands hurt, regardless of the type of needles.

Sloane is adorable! I think she loves her new poncho!

At first I thought one of the kitties in the picture was Uncle Tank.

The baby wearing the poncho...adorable! Cute, cute, cute! I'm with you on preferring knitting with yarn and needles that "give."

The two cats...oh they look so comfortable!

That's a great thank-you, and how nice of her to send it! Love the cute little baby toes sticking out below.

Those cats make me want to take a nap. :)

You are amazing for fostering the kitties. What a reward to see them in someone's home.

What an adorable photo! Isn't it fun to see your knitwear modeled? Wish our cats were friends like that. Cute photos!

Love Sloane and her PANK poncho. What a cutie! Kitties are cute too. Did I tell you I bought yarn for the baby boy blanket on Wednesday?

What a perfect photo of a beautiful baby and her adorable poncho. I want to pick her up and give her a good squeeze!

Sloane is just precious and that poncho fits her perfectly. So sweet! And the kitties are precious, too. So happy that they went to a loving home. Good luck with all your projects. Best wishes, Tammy
