Knitting Bug keeps Biting

The knitting bug has bitten me, and now I'm on a knitting kick. (That may change soon though, because this evening I went to a local quilting guild meeting and had a great time. I was inspired to make a quilt or finish a few of the quilts I've started!)

Right now I am in the middle of not one, not two, not three, but four knitting projects--all on the needles, or soon to be.

In order of priority:

1. Surprise for a certain baby not yet born whose mom might read this blog.

2. Surprise for another baby whose mom is co-owner of this blog. :-)

3. Promised purse for Katie. Yes, Katie, I WILL knit your purse. Soon. Hopefully.

4. Green striped socks which are almost done but keep getting pushed to the bottom of the list.

I have managed to finish a couple of projects. The first is a hat I knit for Heather using this "chullo" pattern I found online. The pattern forms a star-of-sorts on the top of the hat, a nice effect. I have more yarn, and Heather said she would like a matching scarf. I used a wool-soy blend of yarn by Patton. Interesting yarn.

I also knit this simple hat for Mark for Christmas. He likes it!

Lastly, although I did not knit this pink hat for Emily, I have to show it. It was knit by 10 year old Ellen on the Knifty Knitter loom that she received for Christmas. I think she did a great job on the hat! Unfortunately, Emily does not particularly like hats. :-)


  1. and his mommy can't wait to see what you're making!

    Glad you ended up going to the quilting guild!


  2. Your little girl looks such a sweetheart in her new hat!
    Thanks for posting the link to the chullo pattern - i've been looking for one for ages! I've just posted some links on my blog to free pattern sites if you're looking for more projects!

  3. Mother, you're seriously going to knit me a purse?! I can't believe it!
