Gift Knitting and Celebrating
Ah, September how I have been waiting for you! This is the month where the weather changes and so do the daily walks. Already the leaves are changing, truly Autumn is a glorious season in my eyes.
Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my white out shawl. I plan on keeping this beautiful knit for me. I use metal needles for my interchangeable sets, so yes, the shawl was knit with metal needles - I do not have problems with controlling the stitches while on circular needles.
I use wooden needles when I am working on double pointed needles but it's mainly for hand comfort. I actually would knit with metal all the time but metal dpns make my hands ache, I think I'm too aggressive.
I wound up some wool yesterday to kick off the holiday knitting. Right this second, I'm planning on hats, but I could change my mind if I tire of hat knitting. I have a few ideas of what patterns to use, I'm still in the thinking stages of these gifts. The projects will start flying off the needles now that I'll be using only one or two skeins of wool per project.
We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary earlier this week. (yay!) All day we joked about how LONG the thirty years were. Honestly, where does the time go? It seems like yesterday we were planning a wedding in three months time so that his one brother could attend the ceremony before he was deployed for a six month assignment.
We had a small wedding (40 people including the wedding party) and nearly all of them were relatives. If I had to do it all over again, I'd still have a small wedding.
Have you started any gift knitting yet? If so what?
