I have been knitting. One was a large project for Knit Picks. I’ll be sending it off next week.
I have a new Nephew. He is a month old now. I had 9 months of knitting time shrunk down into about 3 weeks. He’s adorable and I love being an Aunt to a nephew.
He’s the 9th grandchild so I decided to make a blanket to symbolize that. It’s a small blanket, but I’ve found sometimes I tend to grab the small ones, especially now that my own M is older and just needs a bit of ‘blankie comfort’ The pattern was a made up, modified, basic basketweave. 9 squares, of 9 patches.
I also made him some socks:
I tried making him a cabled hat, but I ran out of time around 3am the night before our trip. So, maybe next time.
And speaking of babies, here is my almost 1 year old (next month)
And lastly, I finished my little scarf/head thing tonight. Knitted from around 175 yards of Knit Picks Pallet. It was an experiement to try and use up some single skeins I have.
It’s not quite as big as I would like, but could work for a head scarf. Right now I’m calling it Thistle Drop but I might end up doing something else with it.
