Ok, I have been busily working over here. Not all knitting, but most. On Saturday, S had a birthday party for one of his best little friends, O. She is a princess in every sense of the word, sweet, feisty, lovey…you name it, that’s O. So here she is opening her gift.
Last Friday, we went downtown and S was wearing a way too small hat. It was snowing and I realized that this child really needed a hat. So, on Sunday, I let him pick out some yarn and I cast on for the EarWarmer Hat from Little Turtle Knits. I love this pattern. It is so quick and easy and really fun. I finished it last night and this morning he was very excited to model it for me!
So, do you want to see his sad excuse for a hat that he was wearing? I swear, this is SUCH an improvement!
We got that hat for him when he was 18 months old. That was 2 years ago!!! YIKES! Poor kid.
Now for my WIP’s.
First, when we were in Kansas City, I got some YUMMY yarn. This is Cascade Ecological Wool. I really like it and can’t wait to knit it up.
I have also been feverishly (until I had to make a hat for someone!) working on S’s sweater. I am doing the sleeves and they are SLOW going. I am doing them both at once. I keep telling myself that as soon as I finish the sleeves I’ll be almost done and he will be in the warmth of my love for the rest of the winter. So, I keep knitting 🙂
And finally, those blasted socks. I’ve been working on these socks for a year now. I really want them to be perfect. While we were on our trip, I was getting ready to do the heel when I realized that I’d only cast on 56 stitches. Now, J is skinny, but that is a way too small sock for him. So, I had to rip it out, completely. So, I am working on it again. My new goal is to get it done for his birthday in February. I should be able to do that. That is, if nothing else catches my eye and tells me I must knit it! 😉
So, the holiday’s are upon us and I will be sewing a crown for each of my children, making 2 wands and a fairy skirt. Those are my sewing adventures 🙂
Happy Holiday Knitting and Crafting to all of you!
