Angry eyebrows hat, originally uploaded by Shel Kennon. Bailey’s knitted blue hat from last year is too small. So we picked some acrylic yarn we got at a garage sale (so she can wash it) and picked a pattern from Ravelry. She likes the slouchy hats, so we ended up with Katja Zulu (ravelry link), ...

Hallowig, originally uploaded by Shel Kennon. Actually making good progress on this so far, compared to the rest of the year’s knitting. I’m not managing more than a few rows a day though, because I’ve been working on my Diablo II!

One Project at a time….

It’s been a crazy time for knitting this year. Something about the sprained ankle has made my knitting go kablooey! I started this shawl back at the Loopy Spring Fling and have been working on it ever since. No matter what other project I start, nothing gets completed (other than the fun fur shawl I ...

Ankle update and finished object!

Last night I finished mom’s Sand and Sea Tam (Ravelry link), she really liked how the colors came out. Jesse modeled it for the photos. On the ankle front, I had an ortho appt. today. Got to sit in the waiting room for 1.5 hours while they waited for workman’s comp to fax written permission. ...

Unoriginal hat finished!

I finished this hat the day after starting it. I LOVE it! I’ve worn it on most of my Xmas shopping trips. I was a little worried since wool is typically itchy for me, but this was wonderful! Thinking of making more as gifts.

Works in progress….

After several attempts at the Dwarven Battle Bonnet for Jesse (which he is now refusing to wear!), I had a spate of startities, followed by frog- and ripitis. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t bother putting a project into Ravelry until I’ve got it done! Over the weekend, I finished up some new ...

Jesse’s Battle Bonnet

The battle bonnet is now done! It “only” took four tries, including the ill-fated Dwarven Battle Yamulka, which Bailey stole for her stuffed animals. So, one down and two more to go. Jesse also wants the Blond version and Ben wants one as well. Next up will be some more subtle wrist warmers to wear ...
