Linking up with Nicole at Frontier Dreams
Not much to show this week. After 2 finishes in the last few weeks, all I really have now is new starts, which is fun, but they don't photograph very good. Especially since it has been grey and gloomy here for most of the past several weeks. Forecast says sunny for this weekend, and I'm really hoping they are right. I'm all for rainy, cloudy days, but after a while a person really needs to get some sunshine!!
Like I said, I have a few projects just started and they are all for Christmas gifts, and it's kind of funny, but all of them are in almost the same exact stage of 'done-ness'...
Sock Head Slouch Hat started for my daughter and the middle project is Maize Mitts also for my daughter - can you see a pattern in the color that she likes? :) And yes, I posted the Maize Mitts as a new start a few weeks ago, and no, I haven't made any progress on them since. But I included them because they weren't intended to be a Christmas present then - my daughter fully knows about them, but as the weeks past along, I declared all projects on the needles being made for someone besides myself to now be Christmas gifts:) At least the hat will be a surprise - and let me tell you, living in a 700 sq ft home makes it kind of difficult to keep surprises!!
The last project, on the right, probably looks familiar too and that's because I'm making another Lilac Hat. I posted my finish of one for a foster family/friend-of-a-friend HERE, last week. I ended up sending a picture of it to my niece to see if her 4 year old daughter might like one as well. She said, absolutely, that it was even in her daughter's favorite color!! So I am making up another, and it really is a fun one to make too:) This will be the first year we will celebrate the holidays without my niece and her husband and daughter, and also her brother (my nephew) and his wife. They all ended up moving to Washington State this summer - separately and for different reasons, but within a couple months of each other. So it will be kind of weird and my husband's side of the family will need to find a new kind of normal for the holiday celebrations. Thankfully, with all our technology, it is still easy to keep in touch with them:)
That is all from me this week on the knitting front. I do have a few other projects that I'm working on for Christmas presents including some stitching and some sewing, and I'm hoping to post an update of my stitching later this week, so I hope you will join me for that:)
