the beginning of stockings! i’m making my own pattern for these (there will be four at completion) - two white and two red. oh, and i’m kettle dyeing the red. so far so good!
i still have my little color changing scarf i’ve been working on as a break between projects. of course hubs thinks i should be working on his man cowl instead! LOL
i’m taking next week off work so i’m hoping to catch up on a TON of knitting. i would LOVE to button up the opera bonnet and perhaps get that scarf done. even if i just get the strips knitted without getting them sewn together, i’ll be happy. then, the stockings. the first one seems to be coming along nicely… i just have to keep my momentum!
hubs is right in that i need to get going on his cowl. he rides in warm or cold weather and i think a woolly warm cowl will at least help keep the nip out. alizah has some yarn she picked out at nomad, but she hasn’t really said what she wants yet. i may have to choose for her! i had this crazy idea that i was going to make some knitwear x-mas gifts for my dad and his wife this year… let’s hope my fingers haven’t fallen off by then!
