A heavy work week and sick kids mean no energy to blog over the last few days. Today, the kids were feeling better and I actually got a good nights sleep last night, so here I am, ready to go again.
Tomorrow will be warm and sunny and the kids will be in school and I don’t have to work and-and-and-and I am very excited (can you tell?)
So because I haven’t made much, I want to share the knitted items I made over the holidays. The top picture is of a cowl I made with no pattern. I just kind of winged it. Same with the red cap. I used the meathead pattern for the blue/green/purple one, which we call the gnome hat. I love that my little I-guy not only picked out the yarn, loves his new hat and looks totally adorable in it.
Now I am working on the bandana cowl which is stretching my brain power with all of the short rows. Just when I’ve gotten the hang of them, I have to put it down for a few days. I am also reading Wildwood with the kids, which is a great story. We have been reading one chapter a night and are now onto chapter 7. The illustrations are amazing too.
