Projects Completed: Mei Tai Carrier and Cowl Neck Scarf

Here it is! After a few days of studying a few pictures and online patterns for the Mei Tai Carrier (or some call it an Asian Baby Carrier), I finally made one myself. Not bad, only took about 2 afternoons to do it. I loosely followed a pattern by Kimber's Ball Baby Overall which had great and easy to follow directions. With this baby carrier, you can carry your baby three different ways- on your back, on the front, or on the hip. I'll get a picture with CJ in it soon.

A few years back I made a scarf for my Dad. He loved it to peices and my mom told me that he kept on wearing it even though the edges were all frayed. So more recently, he asked me to make something like the scarf above. After completing it, he told me he LOVED it and it was exactly what he was looking for: light, easy to travel with, and not needing to wrap it around the neck and instead just pulling it over the head. I liked the one I made for him so much that I made one for myself. I didn't follow a pattern, I just kinda measured and kept count of my stitching. I don't even know what kind of knit stitch I did. I'm glad that I picked up knitting again. I forgot how theuraputic it was.

Ta daaaaa......
