I can’t say I’ve been knitting a whole lot in the past two weeks because Sparkles the puppy has devoured most of my attention and patience… However, I knit a bunch of stuff over the first couple months of school and never reported them!
I finally bought the book “Knitalong” because I had seen so many projects in Ravelry that were way cool. One of which is the pinwheel blanket. I have lots of acrylic yarns and wanted to put some to good use, so I’ve made two so far. Both are made of Lion Brand’s Pound of Love using bubble gum pink, denim, and white.
I decided I’d use some of my stash to make myself a Flora hat, but once it was done it just didn’t look good on me so I gave it to a friend who ADORES hats! She looks really good in it, and her daughters have stolen it often to wear to school.
The same friend I gave the Flora hat to has a coworker going through chemo for breast cancer. I felt like the best I could do was give her a chemo hat of sorts, so I made a Hurricane Hat using some bright pink Malabrigo.
I made a little boheme for a good friend’s 2 year old daughter:
And since I was on a roll with stash-buster knits, I made a tiny little newborn sized Pebble Vest:
Then I learned that one of my oldest son’s teachers is going to be a grandma for the first time in March-ish and I had to make some baby knits for her. I haven’t given these to her yet, but plan to when the Christmas Break is over.
My husband’s work associate unexpectedly had a baby 2 months early, so I made a little preemie blanket for him.
Finally, my oldest son asked for a new water bottle because he was finishing the little one too quickly at school, so this meant he needed a new bottle cozy to keep the condensation off his desk. We came up with this:
Apologies that the picture quality is terrible, but when the sun has been out, I’ve not had the time to get pictures taken. If you’re interested in any of the details of any projects, almost everything is noted in Ravelry on my projects pages. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
