There has been knitting....LOTS of knitting! Sometime during the holidays, my knitting mojo returned with a vengeance! Again I would have to give a lot of credit to the Harry Potter Knit/Crochet House Cup for lighting a fire under me. I have spent a lot of time knitting by the Christmas tree, which I am not ready to take down yet. :)
this post, and prepping projects for the first month. As I mentioned in my planning post, I am hoping to be as productive as possible between Jan and Feb and then get some things turned in early March but not stressing about it. My first goal was to just finish one project a month and maybe a couple extra's here and there...BUT I hit that mark and more this month! I have begun this term with a bang and I hope it continues as long as I can keep it up!
The first day of the month I seamed in the ends and turned in my Detention post to WIP the First in true Gryffindor style! For this project, I knit a male version of Penelope the Empathetic Monster by Rebecca Danger for the 600 Monsters Strong for Connecticut. I think he came out great and I can't wait to ship him off.
Fingering Weight Baby Mittens by Christine Vogel. These will make great anti-scratch mittens for the baby and they are so tiny and cute! I can't wait for the baby to wear them!
Eviepants All in one booties by Marilyn Porter. I did the mary jane version of the pattern and they were so quick and easy to knit! No seaming, which is my favorite! I definitely plan to knit more of these in different colors and sizes! They were so fun! Then I knit a matching Aviatrix baby hat by Justine Turner to go with the booties to turn in to Flying. This is my goto baby hat pattern and I love how quick the short rows make this pattern and how cute it is!
Owl Two ways (knit version) by Ana Clerc. This was a very quick simple knit and was just what I needed to keep me going.
The project I'm currently working on is the Daphne and Delilah Momma and Baby Monsters by Rebecca Danger for Carmen. This will be part of her big sister gift when the baby comes. She's seen me knitting it but I'll have to hide when I go to seam and finish them. I think she is going to love them!
Hope you enjoyed the knitting post!
