Knits for me!

It is hard to believe that it is already February! The past week was such a wreck I didn’t have time to think let alone post. I am hoping that life will settle back down now that the week is over. 🙂

Even through life was crazy this week I still got in a lot of knitting time.  I managed to finish my My Tototro Hat. The pattern is Sanpo by MJ Saunders.

My first wearable knitted item I made for myself!


I found this pattern an absolute delight to work. The pattern uses a chart for the color work that was easy to follow. I love the herringbone edge that the pattern uses.

The herringbone edge gave this hat even more character.

My traveling knitting seemed to get a lot of attention this week too. My traveling knitting is simple a small project that I carry along in my tote bag so that if I find myself in a waiting room situation or detained somewhere unexpected I have something to work on.

Well I have been toting around a pair of Afterthought heel socks for what seems like eons.  It has only actually been 3 months and one sock was already knit (except for the heel).  Well I have done so much idle sitting in public that I have managed to finish all but the second heel. 🙂

I can’t even begin to tell you how nervous I was when it came to take the waste yarn out of the first sock! I

I am hoping to have new warm socks to wear by the end of the weekend. Making that my second wearable hand knit for myself! I feel so spoiled right now. 😀
