up to my ears in knitting

Sunday evening I realized I had FOUR knitting projects in progress.  This is so unlike me.  I’m a one project at a time kind of girl.  I start something, finish it, and move on to the next project.  How I ended up having four at one time is beyond me.

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!
