Finishing up

I finished up several projects.

This is the Wee Fair Isle Stocking. It comes in a kit.

This is what I call the child's tassel hat. I made the second size, but doubled the amount of stitches cast on. I also knit it in a circle, rather than flat. The yarn is Punta Lava Handpainted.

At some point I need to start thinking of Christmas gifts. For this year.

My new friends

I am having fun. A while ago I found a pattern called Korknisser. Finally I was able to sit down and start knitting.

Voila! My new friends! Worsted weight yarn and US 3 needles and about an hour per gnomey. (I am a slow knitter) But, it is something I can finish and I have a bag full of corks to dress.

Aren't they cute?

Betsy is at it again

Betsy is always trying out new ideas. Here are some fingerless mitts she has whipped out using Kid Seta with her yarn stash.

Snow Day

I was going to be at the shoppe today, until I went outside.

I admit it - I am a wimp.

But I shoveled snow on the walk and on our roof.

And Murphy ran around.

Have a great snowy day.
