Hi everyone! How are things in your neck of the woods? I’m currently enjoying an extended vacation. Or should I say, staycation. Enjoying time at home with my kids and not working! I’ve been doing a ton of knitting during my break. It’s been wonderful. Allow me to share:
Finally, the bunnies are done! I started these over a year ago (oops) and just recently got the motivation to power through and finish them. They only needed tails, dresses, and assembly. While the finished product is cute and I am pretty much happy with them, I don’t see me knitting these again! So much work for a stuffed animal. One modification I did make was to knit many of the pieces in the round… the pattern calls for you to knit everything flat and seam… wasn’t gonna happen. I’m glad I made that change. The faces are a little funky, but oh well. My girls think they are fantastic, and they were the audience I was trying to please!
I also finished my third pair of Zombie Vixen mitts. These are for a coworker friend of mine. I plan on making one more pair of this pattern and then I’m going to need a break from it, beautiful as it may be. I made this pair with Knit Picks Stroll Tweed – not my favorite for garments as I’ve said but it’s great for accessories.
Now the WIPs…
I started a pair of Christmas socks a couple days before Christmas. I feel a new tradition coming on, new Christmas socks every year! I’m using Lynai Yarns sock in Peppermint Twist. I can’t recommend her yarn enough, it’s so pretty!
And lastly, I’m back on a Mitered Crosses kick. We’ll see how long my streak lasts this time. I’m 10 squares in so far, and I’m guessing I have maybe 20 more to go. Maybe before 2016 is here I will have a blanket? Who knows. They are fun to knit so when I get on a kick to make them I go full force!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Did Santa bring you anything yarny?
