Ginny from Small Things. For this KAL we post what knitting/crocheting projects we are working on as well as what books we are currently reading. Here is an over-view picture of what I've been up to this week...
Knitting/Crocheting: But you can see that I've made up for the time not reading by playing with some yummy yarn:)
Tidal Sands from Anne Hanson. I just joined in on a Ravelry KAL hosted by The Sampler Girl that is about knitting all the cowls and hats, so this project and my next project fit in perfectly...
slouch hat and my first hat to be knitted in the round. While the yarn isn't the softest in the world, I love how it is knitting up all striped like this and I love the blue/gray/brown colorway. This one will be for me!! Since I joined up with this KAL, umm yesterday (which doesn't officially start until Thursday), I have found a few more cowl and hat projects I want to do for myself as well. We will see just how many sets of needles I can fill up!! :)
In Bloom Beret that I made her (photo HERE), but not so much the color. She had picked out that yarn AND was told that she probably wouldn't like it once it was done, but I made it anyway. That's okay, it gave me a chance to practice this pattern and this one will be a surprise as I haven't shown her the yarn yet. This will be a Christmas gift to her.
I did get the first set of needles I was waiting on so I could start on my hat, I had hoped that I had what I needed to start on another hat for dd. It's a simple hat that has cat ears. She is going to love it!! But I need a size 8 needle on a 16 inch circular, and so I had to order some more needles (another hat I want to do for myself would also require needles that I don't have, so I ordered those too.) Wish we had a yarn shop close so I could shop for those things locally. Anyway, all this should keep me busy for a while:)
Off to see what others have been up too!!
