Hi everyone! How was Thanksgiving, USA friends? We had a lovely holiday. I’ve enjoyed the time off of work, taking it easy and crafting like a fiend!
I started another pair of Zombie Vixen mitts. Some of my coworkers were quite enamored with mine and asked if I would be so kind to make them mitts. Normally I am the complete selfish knitter, and such requests would be denied. But these were so fun and fast to knit and these ladies are sort of like the sisters I never had. They are officially knit-worthy! So I agreed to make a few pairs with no deadline in mind. I’m not knitting them in color order. I’ll knit one gray one, then one rust-colored, etc. Just to keep it interesting. I’ve also started a new book. It has me mesmerized and spooked.
I also made a new project bag that is currently holding another new WIP, Clincher. I used the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery’s hoop travel bag pattern. Now I can tote my Walking Dead extreme geekdom with me everywhere I go. The fabric is from Spoonflower. This was my first order from them. I’m happy with the fabric. It didn’t fade in the wash, and it is sturdy (not soft, I guess that could be a good or bad thing).
Lastly, on Thanksgiving, I decided to start a new pair of handspun socks. They are sort of in time out at the moment. I’m using some old size 0 Addi’s where the cord is so kinked up and stiff it’s nearly impossible to knit with. Some Sock Rockets are on the way to me and then I will pick these up again.
That’s all for now. Did you start any new projects over the holiday?
