I have been knitting, and even finishing a few things. Knowing the end of the year is coming soon, I've felt a frenzy to be productive and finish projects that languished during the year.
These have been waiting the longest, over a year. I know they look deceptively simple, but there are little fingers hiding inside those paws and since I always knew they were a gift I'd been less inclined to finish them.
Here they are in progress:
I'm so glad they're done and now I can think about doing a pair for myself!
In the meantime I made a pair of quickies for me:
These are Wonder Warmers from Spincycle Yarns using their single ply worsted merino wool.
I also made a hat for myself:
(Sorry for the dark picture.) It's the Virgo Hat from Spincyle in their single ply worsted merino wool, colorway "rusted rainbow." I call mine the Scorpio hat, since I was born in November.
Lest you think I only knit small things I also finished this:
The pattern is the"Jane Origami Crossover Sweater" from Perl Gray. The yarn is Ottawa from Fleece Artist and it's quite delicious. Hilltop is selling them in kits and I made this one as a store sample.
Thanks to Monica for taking this picture.
Now I am pondering what to knit next... Any suggestions?
