Create your day

When the leaves start falling

I start knitting!

It has been tricky trying to find time to knit since it is rare that both kids are asleep at the same time.  So I have been staying up late to get some much-needed knit time in.  Fortunately my 6 month old (yes,  she is already that old) is sleeping through the night.

So what have I been knitting you ask? After finishing a hat for my little girl I realized it was entirely too big because I had used the wrong pattern for the yarn I was using.  It was such a rookie mistake that I am blaming it on baby brain. So I took the entire hat apart and reworked.  Fortunately it was very quick to work up.  Here is the finished piece. (Aviatrix baby hat)

I also knit a pair of leg warmers for the little one.  These took me awhile because I was trying to add elastic thread to the back of the top cuff.  I found it to be very tricky, annoying,  and not worth the effort.  One side (the first side I did) ended up being too tight so the top cuff is now the bottom cuff.  Yay for reversible garments!

My current in progress project is a scarf for myself.  I am knitting the Apis dorsata pattern that was published in kitty fall 2005. Here’s my progress so far.
