Oof. I ate far too much food yesterday (but I’m sure I’m not the only one!). Today my mom and sisters and I are off to a formal tea for a girls-only outing, and I’m bringing along the brown striped scarf, to see if I can get that finally finished at some point today.
I gave the blue and white scarf to my little sister and she loved it! I tried the swirly brown hat on the oldest nephew and the niece and not only did it fit them pretty well, but they both thought it was cool (although I think the addition of a pompom on top helped their enthusiasm a bit). So I guess I’d better get cracking on making two more hats so there’s enough for everyone when Christmas rolls around.
My sister also brought me some gorgeous wool blend yarn in a heathered maroon. I have an afghan pattern I am eying, and this would be perfect for it. So once Sonnet and Seabreeze are finished, and once I’ve got the hats done for the kids, and once I’ve managed to make some good headway into Blaze, maybe I’ll get that started. With all those projects I’m thinking that may not be until January, and at that point I really ought to start on the baby blankets for the friends who are due in April….oh, if only there was more time in the day to knit!
