Now that gifts have been given, I can share them on here. I loved having time to make a few gifts this year.
Ravelry project page here. I’ve made this hat a few times; it’s a cute pattern. The red of the yarn is much deeper and bluer than the photos show. It’s Cascade 220 in #9404.
I made these slippers – another pattern I had wanted to try for a while (funny it’s a similar pattern name). It calls for a double strand of worsted, but I used a bulky yarn. The first one I did as the pattern directed (knit flat and seamed) but the second one I adapted and knit in the round. When I make these again, I will definitely do them in the round.
Project page here. These are very cooshy and comfy. I will likely make a pair for myself.
I made two cushion covers for dear Ande. The project page is here.
I made a grey one and a brown one (whippet friendly shades!).
If I made this again, I would also knit it in round as much as I could.
Once I was done my obligatory knitting, I started a pair of mittens for myself. I just finished them tonight:
I’ll post better pics when I can get some in the daylight.
We went for a drive the other night and I grabbed my dSLR to snap some pics. It was interesting! I’ll have to go out again and try it when I have more time to fiddle with settings and focus. I liked these:
I took these freehand with no flash, just ambient light. So they are grainy, but I like it.
I picked up some socks I’d started a while ago, trying toe up, two on one long circular. I’m not sure if I’ll keep going. I seem to spend more time sorting out the tangled cable and adjusting the stitches on the needle than actually knitting. We’ll see.
