I have a problem and it affects me all the time when I am knitting. The closer I get to the finish line the less I work on something. The pinwheel sweater has been at this stage for about a week. I have half a sleeve to finish (that and about a million ends to weave in , but that is another problem and another post) = ). Anyway here is the progress.
Well instead of knitting on the pinwheel I have been knitting hats.
This one is a bonnet for Daughter. I based it on Russian Winter from Knitting Nation. I used a strand of Wool of the Andes and a strand of Oh My! (which is a perfect name since that is what you say when you pet it) held together.
That ball of yarn is a purchase from Rhinebeck which is being knitted into a hat and scarf or maybe a combo hat/scarf thingie.
This hat is something I came up with for a family friend. He wanted a black beanie and well the simpler something is the harder it is for me to make right. So my solution is to crochet the band and then pick up and knit the rest. (the horror - I combined knitting and crochet!!!) = ) joking. It came out great and should fit great too. It fits Hubby and they both have the same size- ish heads. yarn: Knit picks Swish in black. size G hook and size 8 dpns
Well that is what I have been up too. I hope everyone has a great holiday and be safe traveling this weekend. I (hopefully) will be knitting and spinning this long weekend.
