The Hippie Homemaker Knits

Fun, Fashionable, Hand Knitted Apparel for the Whole Family....


Or something like that. My mom is having me knit some things for her new fiber arts studio/store, Up and Dyed. Right now I am finishing up my first baby items, a hat and matching mittens:



This is also a great example of Magic Loop Knitting, which is my preferred method for knitting in the round. I never, EVER use double pointed needles, this is so much easier. Here are a couple more pictures of Magic Loop in action:




I would also like to do some adult hats, and some other layette items, such as bibs, baby legs, and maybe booties (if I can master sock knitting). I'm still a beginner, so I am pretty nervous about trying to market my work, but mom is very excited about it, so I guess we're going to give it a try.
