Knitting Update

I realized I was seriously behind on showing off my knitting, so here are a few photos of what I've finished in the last month.

A hat for Annika.  It has a neat swirl on top.  It is the Family Rolled Brim Hat.



A hat for Gabriel.  It's OK, but I should have used softer yarn.  I gave it to him on the last day of school before Valentine's day.  


A hat for hubby.  He thinks it's a little short for his liking, but the yarn was so soft and gorgeous. 


And finally, some booties to go with my first ever hat, which I made for a friend's new baby.  These made me wish I had taken up knitting before I had children, so I could make them a bunch of teeny tiny booties and hats and other stuff.  Oh well!


My current project is a shawl for myself.  I'll let you know how it goes!  I'm about a third of the way done.  Hopefully I'll finish while I can still wear it this year!

Jennifer, your knitting is beautiful. I've knitted one project in my life. Also a hat that fits the recipient beautifully. I'm in awe of people like you who can turn out such beautiful projects. Well done!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Oh, I do love that swirled top. What talent. I couldn't knit to save my life. I have to buy my daughter's hats.
