I’ve been knitting up a storm the past several months. I made matching sweaters for the 4 grandsons in royal blue, navy, and green and light blue. The eldest grand-daughter got a jumper with a cabled top.
Of course, I couldn’t neglect our grand-dog, whose sweater came out too short so I’ll lengthen it so it’s not a “crop top.” It’s my first dog sweater and they’re a bit tricky to do.
I made a vest for my sister Madeline from Noro yarn someone had given her. A hitchhiker scarf for Prita, a bobbles scarf and hat for Esti, and a ruffled scarf for Claudia as a thank you present for attending my memoir writing workshop. I hope it keeps her warm and inspires her writing!
Yet another local yarn store closed. The owners retired to Costa Rica and plan to offer knitting retreats. I will miss them. They could take a ready made sweater or a picture from a magazine and create a pattern. I did stock up during their sale and am now working on a cuff- to -cuff pullover for myself. Plenty of snow day projects!
