Knitty Keen

Knitting, knitting, and some more knitting

Winter has finally settled in and I’m scrambling to find and make hand knits for everyone. Thing 2’s sweater has been sleeveless for weeks so I’m trying to get them done today so I can wash it tomorrow so he can wear it to school on Wednesday. I’m also making him a replacement hat because that seems to have disappeared over the summer. The husband lost his neck warmer, so he needs a new one. I found a slouch hat I knit last year but it really is too big on me. I knit a new one in some bulky yarn from stash, even bought a fur pom pom for it, but after some aggressive blocking it still doesn’t fit properly. I have another skein in the same color so I’m going to knit myself a Barley from it so it’ll be super thick and warm. My nephew’s sweater didn’t get finished for Christmas so I need to work on that too. Once every one is suitably clad in hand knits, I can go back to selfish knitting.
