I love to knit for my grand cherubs!
So while we were at the beach this past week,
I brought along patterns and yarns
for new winter hats and mittens.
Our daughter chose the patterns she liked best
and I got busy.
Both kids have rather large heads,
so I tried Charlie's hat on
when I had completed the band....
just to make sure.
You can find the pattern here.
We chose Lev's hat pattern for Maggie's hat,
and I will modify it by knitting a yellow flower
for one side of it.
It's very difficult to get an almost 10-month old
and an almost 3-year-old to sit still for a photo,
but here's how the hats look, all finished:
I hope to complete the flower this next week -
but first I need some yellow yarn!
I've made great progress with my
Stones and Stripes Shawl!
I knit on it almost the entire
6+ hour drive home yesterday.
My goal is to finish it this next week.
I adore the pattern!
And just because I thought I needed more projects,
I've picked up some new yarn!
I am an avid Knitmore Girls podcast fan,
and boy can Jasmin and Gigi get me in trouble!
Jasmin has mentioned several times
that she loves the Fab Funky Fibres sock yarn
so I just had to get some
....and of course, one skein wasn't enough!
Elaine, the shop owner, is a delight to work with,
and orders are shipped promptly.
I've almost finished my present pair of socks,
so it was time to stock up on more yarn!
I'm also working away on my Sycamore vest,
but haven't made enough headway to warrant a photo.
peace to you!
