I have totally walked away from the quilting studio for the last little while. I’ve mostly sat on the couch knitting while family swirls around me. It’s been so relaxing and self-indulgent. Chat a little, watch football, cook a little, watch hockey, knit…the real life of leisure!
This is how the felted hat turned out. I think the crown is a little high and the brim is too big, but it is useable and very, very warm. I’ll put a scarf around the crown and it will look fine. It’s a little fuzzy, but a brush up will even that out and make it look pretty good.
This sweater was started last winter and I didn’t really have much time to knit so it went into a bag and sat until a couple of weeks ago. I got it finished and now I have a nice, new, warm sweater to wear with my warm hat!
And yesterday I started a sweater for my grandson…at least it has some color going for it! If I remain a couch potato for the rest of this week, I may get it done, too. It’s small! But I just guessed at how big his head is, so maybe I should take it over when I see him tonight and see if it will fit!
I got a chemo hat done, too, but I didn’t get a picture of that before I gave it away. Knitting the particular hat pattern that I use is very enjoyable for me, but the reason people need them is crappy! Elann. com is where I got the free pattern and a few things for my yarn stash over the years!
So, I’m off to sit on the couch again, happily knitting away and being just as lazy as the day is long. New ambition will undoubtedly come with the New Year!
