The knitting bug has bitten this past week, in that I am knitting wildly and furiously working on three projects. The first project is a second pair of fingerless mitts for holiday gift giving. I had some loose half skeins in my stash in the same dyelot and knew I could eke out another pair. I'm excited to do a second pair but I'll be glad when I am done with the second pair. I might just be overdosing on the pattern a bit.
I started a sweater for the preschooler in a size 4 and I hope she will like it, I know her mom will love it. I just separated the sleeves from the body and am chugging along with the body of the sweater.
I finally (finally!) got to the the color work part of the pattern of my hat for me. The white and hot pink yarns are from odds and ends. The black yarn is 1 1/2 skeins of baby ull by Dale Garn that I had in deep stash. It is the soft super-wash wool ever.
I should be done with the second pair of mitts today or tomorrow, then I will assess my gift knitting pile and see what else I need to knit before Christmas. I hope I can also start something for me. I have a pullover sweater just waiting for me to cast on!
What are you working on this week?
