Baby boots for my friends’ recent babies.

Two halves of a pair of knitted underpants. The short wide section at the bottom is the part which wraps around the leg, the top long part is the sewn to the other half and goes on the torso. Extend the short wide section down a couple feet long and you’d have pants. They’re really surprisingly comfortable.

Just a little pouch I’d knit. Only took a couple minutes.

A baby blanket. The yellow is cattail pollen I accidentally spilled on it.

A tunic. I love these giant tunics, they’re wicked comfortable, and go down mid-thigh. I was really needing another shirt, I only had three and the one I’d knit out of cotton yarn kept breaking strands and running stitches up from the edges.

I did all of these in the past two weeks.

Also, the blanket all of these except the last picture are on is only half finish, I am knitting that right now. On my list of projects next I’ve got a hiking pack, a couple small cloths for sundrying fruits, some socks, a pair a pants for a friend, a hat for a friend, a pair of felt pants, a tunic for a friend, a couple little pouches and two large sacks for storage, a blanket, three gigantic pullovers, and that’s all I can think off off the top of my head but there’s probably more. Should take me till about the end of the year to finish all that. As of now the only pieces of clothing I wear that aren’t handmade are my boots (although I usually forgo shoes in the Summer entirely), some socks, and one pair of pants. If only I could figure out how to weave straw boots like the Chinese used to do.
