That I remembered to take pictures of. Not pictured is a yellow stocking hat with Grumpy embroidered just above the ribbing, a dark brown and teal Jana’s hat, and two Antler hats like the one directly below – only one black, and the other green.
The Antler hat, yarn unknown.
First Frost Hat – Loops & Threads – Charcoal
Owl scarf (pattern my own) – Paton’s Classic Roving – Grey
Owl Hat – Paton’s Classic Roving – Grey
Cabled Head Band and Flower, based off of linked patterns – yarn unknown, though discontinued
At least for me, though baking is definitely tossed in there as well – banana bread (planned) and peanut butter cookies (requested). Today I want to get my husband’s thick winter hat done, and also relish in the post-holidays knitting frenzy by working on a pair of fingerless gloves for me. Also, tea.
I will be posting about the presents made later . . . some time. Maybe even before the new year.
I like this one enough I might keep it for myself . . .or make another one. I seriously can’t get over the colors and sparkles.
So close, and yet so far . .
Like I said, I freaking love this yarn.
A brief modeling stint.
And that is okay. Kind of. I am squirreling in my projects again. Most of the things I have been working on for myself I have put on hold for a bit, while I get some Yule and Christmas gifts done so I am not overwhelmed closer to the time of. No one likes to be finishing their gifts on the drive to their parents house . . . . which may have happened several times already. This year I will be prepared! Honest. (hahahahahahahaha)
I started another Graham hat this week – Yarn Bee Dazzling
in Sunburst/40. I just could resist the sparkles and colorway.
Fair warning – may be making A Lot of Graham hats for gifts.
I do not know exactly what it is, regardless, it was
a cool sight for our Saturday drive around.
This weekend we spent at my husband’s family’s cabins – Deer Creek Cabins – continuing spring maintenance and post winter cleaning. On one of my jaunts around, I noticed the daffodils came back again. The glacier lilies have sprouts up every where as well. I predict that they will mostly bloom around Mother’s Day.
In further news, I finished the hat I was working on for my Dad – the #LOUDER – as he is a big Sea Hawks fan. I know little about sportsball all the things, but I think he will like this.I messed up a little bit on the on the Beastquake bit, but if you weren’t comparing it to the graph, I don’t think you’d notice.
It is just exhausting chasing those squirrels, so October helped me get started
with the #LOUDER hat I am working on.
It was only sunny for a bit, so I took full advantage of it and sat in the shade
with my knitting and audio book.
Further proof of sunlight.
A friend and I want to learn how to do stranded color work while knitting, so she urged me to actually make a hat that has been in my Ravelry Library for a while – The Fuck It Hat, by Not A Lazy Suzen.
I used Schoppel-Wolle for both the grey and variegated yarn. As this is my first stranded knitting project, there are some things I had problems with, and some things I am not sure how to fix. However, I did know enough to realize that the first incarnation of this hat I had to frog, as it was all puckered – that will not block out and means I had one or both of the yarns too tight.
