|Lola loved this bulky cowl I was making out of baby alpaca. This is supposed to be a Christmas present but I have been wearing it all week. I'm just test driving it... yeah that's it... test driving.|
|Another cowl I have made with a simple eyelet pattern and gorgeous Waterloo Wools.|
|The Kaie Beanie, a diagonal slip stitch hat out of bright orange. This photo doesn't do it justice, this colourway from Waterloo Wools is gorgeous.|
|A Forest Queen Hat out of super soft Malabrigo. See the tiny trees and bobbles?|
|My 5-hour baby sweater, that took a bit longer than 5 hours. Don't know who this sweet cardi is destined for yet but it is made of yummy Dream in Colour Classy in a fantastic colourway called "Flamingo Pie".|
Over the past few weeks I also had the opportunities to take 2 knitting classes, one to learn toe-up socks and another to make gloves. Toe-up socks were a breeze and I love not having to graft or pick up stitches. Gloves on the other hand were a bit trickier; knitting all of those finger's can be a bit fiddly.
|So far I have made one toe-up sock and this toe-up slipper which I love. I don't have a case of second sock/slipper syndrome at all...|
|My guy and me as a swiffer duster and a piece of dirt.|
Starting a list of Christmas knitting, so will try to update soon on more WIPs and FOs. Also, a new ornament tutorial next weekend which is super cute!
