No idle hands here! They’ve been busier than ever this month with knitting Christmas presents.
I completed the pom pom baby blanket for my niece that I shared with you before. It used up 5 balls of yarn. And although it wasn’t perfect, each stitch was made with love.
In addition to knitting a dark-cranberry cable cowl for my mom, I also made one in a dusty rose for my sister-in-law.
The purple cowl I showed you before on here is the same style. I ended up keeping the purple one for myself because it was more of an ‘experiment’.
The following two cowls were super-quick to complete. I literally finished knitting 2 cowls in about 5 hours. It’s a fun and easy pattern that I recommend you try.
So, now that Christmas is over, I’m back to knitting another hat. It’s no secret that green is my favourite colour, so now I’m Knitting a Green Beanie.
This was what I completed before working on the Christmas presents. On my public-transit commutes to work, I’m going to do a little each day because I so badly want a swampy-green beanie!
Here’s a closer look at it so far. This shows the brim and a little more of the hat. You can see the beginning of the swirling design.
Hmm…and I don’t think I ever showed you the completed purple cowl. This is what it looks like when lying flat.
It’s so cozy and warm. I like tucking in the bottom and keeping the upper brim up. But I’ve also worn it with the top and bottom tucked in.
It looks better when worn than just lying flat.
I have a question for you! Does anyone know of a specific free knitting pattern to make mittens (for adults, not children)? I’ve looked on Ravelry already, so if you know of other patterns from various sources, please let me know!
Although I only wear gloves, I’m planning to knit mittens because they’re warmer…hehe and because I have lots of yarn to use.
Happy Sunday to all of you! Can you believe that it’s almost the end of the year already?
