Hey, it's been a while since I've blogged...work and the holidays were extremely busy. I went to Minnesota for Thanksgiving-I finally met my neice, Kira, thecutestbabyinthewholeworld! This was probably the last time I will be going to MN for the holidays since my parents are retiring to Tampa. But hopefully not the last time ever! Too many friends and memories to give it up completely! Anyway, after turkey day festivities, work was crazy, then I went to NYC to take care of Kira while by brother was taking finals and my sil went back to work. Kira was the coolest. I even made a hat for her while I was out there (modified from my Dulaan hat pattern
). I also made a pair of socks Conwy from Knitting on the Road
by Nancy Bush. I LOVED knitting this sock. Oh, the yarn was DELICIOUS, too! I used Sock Hop yarn
from Crown Mountain farms in the colorway, Say a Little Prayer. I also made the Fetching
from Knitty mitts and again the Dulaan coordinating hat for my guy's daughter for Christmas. I am working on the edging for Icarus
and am on the 2nd sleeve for Jawbreaker Cardigan
. I did start a sleeve for the Mariah hoodie, also from Knitty, but I think I made a mistake and may have frog part or all of it. Whew! I have a lot of knittin going on! But I have no pictures! I am a bad project photo taker. But I have to include one photo...
This is a bittersweet covered silo on a farm that was near where Bob placed his trailer where he stayed while he hunted. Yes, he hunts deer, but he is completely legal (has all permits, etc) and he eats all that he shoots. I will take pictures of projects soon and will post them when I have them! Happy Knitting!
