Knit Chic

With all the knitting going on, I think I should change the name of the blog to Knit Chic instead of Sew Chic.  Just kidding, but yes, it seems 2012 was the year for knitting for me.  I really do hope to sew more in 2013 because I sure do miss it!

No sewing yet, but the knitting continues....

This cowl scarf, modeled by my daughter, was a gift for my mom.  It suits my mom much better in size than it does Emily.  I liked this cowl so much that I'm half tempted to make myself one.  I particularly like it when worn as a hood.

Yarn: Lion Brand Amazing in the Glacier Bay colorway

This next hat and scarf set was made for my dad, modeled by my son.  I don't know that my dad will ever wear it, but I thought it might be warm for him in the cold Wyoming weather.  (I'm not there, so I'll never know).  

Yarn:  Lion Brand Tweed Stripes

With the remains of the Amazing yarn for my mom's cowl, I made a scarf and hat.  Okay, the whole truth is that I didn't have enough leftover yarn so I had to buy another skein.  I do like this yarn even though it is a wool/acrylic blend.  It's not that fun to knit with (fuzzy and a bit splitty--yes, that's a word), but it is so soft and I love the excitement of watching the colors play out.

And now I think I'm going to go to my sewing room and see if I can make some sense of the shambles there.  My idea of giving Emily free rein of the sewing room has its disadvantages.  :(
