More Knitting than you can shake a stick at

What have I been up to? No good to say the least. Finally the holiday is past and I managed to complete all of my knitting goals with a bit extra.

Gifts Given - things I knit for the family.

Almost, but not quite = Project that didn’t turn out how I wanted them to so I passed on making them Christmas gifts. The brimmed hat was in danger of going flying at the first sign of wind. My brother got a London Beanie instead The colors for the Center Square hat weren’t working for me so I knit my dad a skull hat instead.

Crochet - I found out that my Great Grandmother, whom I never got to meet, was into crochet. Here is an exquisite doily done on super small hooks. Hooks that look like they were meant for eye surgery. I’ll make good use of them when my copy of the SnB Crochet arrives in the mail. Also I’m rocking a poncho that has been waiting for me in a closet since about 1972.

Finished and in Progress - Some finally finished objects along with mini projects. A tubey sweater I’ve been working on and off for the past year. A lace sock, a sparkly gold shrug, a hat, and finally the seemingly endless My So Called Scarf.
