Hello fellow knitters
So are your arms, shoulders, fingers, wrists aching too?
Why do we do this to ourselves?!!! Christmas knitting...always sounds like a good idea!
Well, to be honest, most of my knitting isn't for gifts.
A lot of it has been for our farm store, which in turn will become gifts to people I suppose.
It's been fun to see happy people buying up our handknits to gift to others.
Here's what I have been working on this week....
I have worked another skein of the baby blanket for my nephew-to-be.
Love this blanket and how quickly it is knitting up. Thank you Jared Flood for being a genius.
My one and only niece requested a gray slouch hat.
When we were together a few weeks ago she really liked my Spicy Rosebud hat, so I thought I would make her one. I am using gray baby alpaca yarn from our farmstore, held double for a bulkier hat.
I also like to knit the Rosebud hat in Stockinette opposed to the garter in the round. I just like the way it looks. I have made this hat so many times I should be able to do it without a pattern at this point!
Another Rosebud hat. This one is for the farm store. Knitted with dark brown baby alpaca.
I used a single strand for this one. Love how these hats come out. I need to block and then it's ready to make it's debut.
For reading, I started The Book Thief on my nook.
We're reading it for book club. It's been on my list for years now so it's nice to finally be getting to it.
Maybe we'll head out as a group when the movie comes out!
Hope you're all enjoying these last days before the Christmas blur!!!
Just a reminder to the local folks....
