I haven't posted much knitting content lately because I've been knitting gifts.
I tried to give things to people that I've never knit for before.
I gave a fun fuzzy scarf to Sam's teacher:
I gave hats to Sally's teachers:
(They are at science camp this week, in the mountains,
with snow on the ground. With lots of
sixth graders. I thought a new hat would be fun.)
I made hats for my in-laws:
Same color, different pattern.
They have a ranch and have to feed the horses twice a day.
And it gets really cold there.
Finally, I knit a hat for my nephews and my brother-in-law:
These were fun. It's the same yarn (& color) that I
used to make my sister a birthday sweater last year.
The picture doesn't really show it, but I knit
my nephew's initials into their hats.
Geeky knitting, to be sure, but I got a kick out of it.
My mom and I knit up a bunch of hats for
They're so cute!
Thin yarn + small needles = not my favorite project
But I love this picture of it in the morning sun:
