I put my nose to the grindstone yesterday and knocked out two of the seven projects I had on the needles. I wish I could finish two projects like that every day! We knitters rarely get that kind of instant gratification.
The From Norway With Love Hat is so freaking cute I can’t even stand it. I can’t wait to knit this hat again! And its stranded color work! I don’t even know what I’m saying!
Even though it looks amazing on me, this hat is getting wrapped up and given to my sister in law, Emily. I’m sure it will also look amazing on her. She is easily distracted, too, with all those babies running around, so I’ll get to visit it a lot.
When I knit this hat again I’ll use size 6s for the rib and switch to the 7s for the body of the hat. I’ll use the exact same yarn, Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Sport, and probably the same colors! Sapphire Heather, Tidepool Heather, and Wonderland Heather.
I know I’m a little late for Halloween, but do you want to see something TERRIFYING?!
THE INSIDE! GAH! LOOK AWAY!
Also finished up yesterday were my Mary Jane Slippers. The yellow and gray combo is almost too easy, right? Instant cute.
My feet look like they are working overtime because they are. Since these are gifts, I made them a normal size and not a gigantic Dutch girl feet size. SO SMALL! I peeled them off and packaged them up for my friend Colleen.
Now I’ve only got 5 projects going! I’ll try my hardest not to cast on anything else.
Needles: Size 7 16″ circulars and DPNs
