I really tried, but...
Knitting for myself didn't last too long. One project really...
Here are my finished gloves. I even got to wear them out in the car a few days ago. They are nice, but the next pair might have to be on smaller needles. Or maybe I'll get used to the larger knit stitches like my first pair of socks... But I love them all the same.
So once I finished the gloves, I cast on for a hat.
The hat is for a friend who asked me to match a scarf he has. The original hat has been lost, so I used the Yarn Harlot's pattern for the Unoriginal Hat. It was fast and easy and looks great on too!
After the last post, I realized that I never showed you my latest books that I bought before Christmas or my holiday gifts!
Here are son of SNB and a bargain Kaffe book I grabbed for $1.99! I will never use this book, but for that price, I had to pick it up! I have already used the Son of SNB book for the Mistaken rib hat I made for my nephew. My husband loves the argyle scarf on the front. Me too! So there might be a few of those in my future!
These are Christmas gifts from my sister. Royal Cashmere yarn from discontinuedyarn.com in sage with a scarf pattern to use with it, plus the latest Yarn Girls Guide Book for older kids. This will come in handy over the next few years for my younger nieces who are getting older but aren't quite 2 or 4 yet.
