Click, click, click goes the sound of knitting needles

Here are a couple of things that have come off the needles recently.

Target Wave mittens, from the book "Knitting Nature" by Norah Gaughan.
Interesting to knit, though the pattern had a little errata issue in the thumb gusset. Of course, I didn't catch it until the mittens were done. And, in normal Camie fashion, I was too discouraged to even rip it out and do it over. They are knit in Alpaca.
A certain, lovely blogmate received these for Christmas.

Below: A hexagon scarf, also from the "Knitting Nature" book. This is knit in Baby Alpaca. Obviously, I love Alpaca. If I had more room in my backyard, I would own a Llama!

By now, I have completed the 3rd hexagon...


Next, I will be starting Little Beanie's 1st Birthday sweater. It is also from the "Knitting Nature" book... It is called Turbulence U Neck. The yarn should be arriving this week. I chose a nice lilac color, since she looks so great in purple. The pattern, has been modified from an adult pattern. I hope I modified it correctly.... Because, as you can see from the mittens, I hate ripping things out.

Oh, you posted the mitts! I don't know how to download my camera, and my batteries are low...I totally suck. Can I borrow your photos for my blog? They are super warm. I will probably wear them when I shovel snow today, seeing as how it hasn't stopped all morning.
They are coolest mitts that I have ever had.
Thank you.
You are so talented, Camie.

heres a thing. a bit off track,

i was watching rocky II this morning, and when he and adrian saw rocky junior for the first time, i actually shouted "thats beanie"
he looked just the same as the photos you posted.
and yes, i know beanie is a she baby, not a he baby! but they do look the spit of each other.
i've spent most of this aft trwling the net trying to find a pic so i could mail you, but to no hope!
i'll shut up now!

love the mitts

My mother-in-law is the knitter in our house. My Mum was a genius, she knitted a Mrs Tiggywinkle from Beatrix Potter for my daughter years back. Still has pride of place on her bedroom shelf

Ooo, that's bad about the mits. I'm with you, though, I loathe ripping anything.

The Turbulence is in my knit queue already. I actually have the yarn for it! That's totally weird for me, I never use the yarn called for in a pattern. Anyway, it'll be fun to see how the baby's turns out. :)

I love the alpaca as well - very nice pattern and I bet it feels heavenly.
