Catch up

I’m getting further behind on items to post.  Sometimes I don’t get past the idea to do it, but more often I come across one or two in the smattering of photos I have and am reminded.

Here’s a Christmas gift for the boys, made from a Spoonflower template

Another hat mishap

This one is almost as good as the last one. First off, it was a Christmas gift. Well, you might be aware that it’s nearly February. Secondly, i delayed in buying an additional ball of wool until after i started decreasing. I thought i could do it with one…at $18/ball i wish i had. Too late (aka stubborn) to go back i continued with 2 inches in single ribbing rather than the double i’d done so far.
After it all, the hat really didn’t fit the recipient well and i’m resigned to keeping it. At least when i’m wearing it i can’t see the mistakes as well as if Brett was.
(And i thought ribbing would avoid sizing the concerns of a felted one)

I was also trying to finish a ribbed hat before the knitting went awol at a family reunion. And i’m still contemplating a wool table runner in tonal reds. (Yes, i do know Christmas has past.)
