Hi y’all! I thought I would share my progress on my current and recently completed knitting projects. I finished up the baby booties I was working on. Or should I say I scrapped the first pair after realizing I would NEVER finish in time (size US 2 needles = SLOW progress), and then found an AWESOME pattern by Autumn Street called Bitty Baby Uggs knitted on US 5 needles that I knocked out in just 4 evenings. THAT is my kind of knitting project!
I am still plugging away on my first pair of socks…I am making the decreases to the toe of the second sock; somehow that sock is ending up larger than the first? Not exactly sure why, could be my gauge changed, or I did more rows, who knows?! Anyway, now that it is cool enough to actually wear them I have had more incentive to knit on them.
I am using a creamy colored merino wool yarn (Cascade Superwash I believe). I can’t wait to finish it and start wearing it!
I knitted a few items for Christmas gifts this year…a first for me. I knitted a cap and matching cowl for my sister:
I also knitted a cap for my dear BIL. It is the same Boyfriend Hat pattern, but It seemed a little short so I picked up stitches and knitted a couple inches of additional ribbing so his ears would be covered. He is a golf course superintendent and bald, so his head needs covering on the few weeks out of the year it actually gets cold here in south Alabama:
