I took a deep breath and started working on the one that was closest to being finished. Before I knew it, I was down to THREE, then TWO, then ONE!
I hardly ever knit anything for myself, so after the handmade holiday rush, I decided to start a pair of knucks. After I finished one knuck, I started on some baby socks. They had to be made for Miss Emma’s teacher as she returns tomorrow after being on maternity leave. Then I got two hat orders thanks to Joshua’s teacher.
I made a flower power hat in some very soft and squishy Charisma yarn (same kind of yarn I used for Joshua’s afghan). Then I made a Chess Play hat using Fair Isle knitting, a technique that I had never used before. It was quite simple and I love the way this hat turned out. Knit in one of the local high school’s colors, I think it will be the perfect mix of warmth and school spirit!
I’m now left with just one knuck to make. Knitting is my evening wind down so I love having a project to work on. Although I’m not advertising knitting orders, you can certainly email me if you want something made!
