Things are moving along

Yes, my needles are moving.....

Knitting is still a big crafty, creative area in my life!

I have a few things on the go at the moment.... and a few finished objects.

First is a new Christmas Stocking that has just been flying! Since I mentioned that there are a few babies coming into our life soon, you can probably imagine that a few of these are planned, you may also recall that I dyed several colours of wool to do these.

Teal and Cream. I have to admit it's a bit boring, but I think it's because I have spoiled myself with kettle dyed yarn and the subtle colour changes always make the knitting more enjoyable for me. That being said I think it's rather handsome.This could honestly be done any time now if I just finish the bind off, tack down the flap and block the thing!

Also moving through a new pair of fingerless gloves for the gal who had been giving to me in my Sorority. (Thanks Sarah!) I hope she likes them, but they are her colours...... so I think it will go over well.

Finally I wanted to share the Prospero Hoodie that I have been knitting for my sister's kids. I think it's sufficiently unisex  for both of them to get use out of it, also super-wash wool makes it easy for my sis to care for it. I like the pattern, and I am considering a second. Knitting this has been so enjoyable. The pattern is interesting and the colour is fantastic, not to mention that the yarn is soft and pleasant in the hand.
The body and two small sleeves, almost ready to join. This goes fast when I can find time to devote to it.
I have more things that are still being worked on. Several of the sweaters that I wanted to have done for the fall are still in limbo, but I am ok with that. I have a few new ideas about getting some zippers in there, so hopefully that will be something to show off soon.
Stay tuned for more updates on the projects spilling over the edge of my bins!
