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.
All of these projects I am using my stash. Finally.
