Well, I’m finally about to catch up on a few life events here. Obviously I can’t write about everything in my life since I last posted. My life has been so crazy that I think I could write a book over my last few adventures.
Now down to the knitting business. Since I’ve been busy moving, traveling, and directing a Summer Mission I have been very behind on my knitting. I do have a few pieces from this spring that I completed and would like to show you, but unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be able to do much knitting until September…
This first piece is my most recently completed project. It is just a free Patons Yarn pattern I grabbed a few years ago from Hobby Lobby. I used Classic Elite Yarns MountainTop Vail. I only used one skein and ended the piece a few inches short because I didn’t have a second skein and didn’t want to pay to have one shipped up to Alaska. It will still look just fine on in the fall. I wanted to knit myself one of these because I thought it would look cute for a more casual/sporty fall outfit. I am kind of excited to wear it with my black North Face shell, skinny jeans, and some Sperry’s.
My second piece I completed in early May for my best friend, CJ, as she was just about to have her second child, sweet baby girl Evie! I cannot wait to get back home in July to meet her. I love every little beautiful picture she sends me of this sweet little blessing. I also am excited for a little bit of free time to knit Luc a little something for the winter! He’s so cute and looks a lot like his mother.
This third piece is a hat that I knit up, I don’t know who I’m going to give this to yet. It’s knit for a little girl about a 2T size. The purple in this is so cute, I imagine it going to a girl with brown curly hair… just haven’t met her yet!
Currently I have a couple of projects on my needles. The first one is a double knit cowl that will be super cute, but I had to set it down because lately I haven’t had a moment to myself to really concentrate on it and I’m a little nervous I’ll make mistakes since I don’t really know how to double knit yet… If you have any tips/suggestions I would love to hear them! My second project is another washcloth. I am making a set for my Mom like the purple one I think I posted before.
