Warning: Knit heavy post.
There is a reward for those of you who make it all the way to the end.
Recently I've completed some knitting projects
and made some decisions about long completed items.
This little pixie hat was completed several years ago with no recipient in mind.
I bought the yarn on vacation in Washington.
The pattern was free with the purchase of the yarn.
I now have a willing recipient, so GB#2 is the proud owner of a new hat.
Next is a cozy little neck warmer.
This was actually almost finished a long time ago.
All the knitting was done but the sewing together up the back was not going well.
So it went into the "I don't want to think about it anymore" spot.
Finally, the other day, I got it back out and made up my mind to make it work.
The cables were not fitting together properly at the join.
I started there and did the best I could and then did the middle.
I am assured by my family that any little goofs will be covered by my hair.
I believe that the saying "Done is better than perfect" fits here.
The next recent finish is a belated Christmas gift.
One end has free form cables and the other has something a little more planned.
Much to my surprise my son, T-Bone, had never received a hand-knit scarf
and asked for one for Christmas.
The color here is much closer to its actual color.
I gave you a sneak peek at this last project in the post about lining my knitting bag.
GB#1 is also the proud owner of a new hat.
And now for your reward for getting to the end of this post...
A couple weeks ago I saw this on my drive home.
The sky looked like it was actually on fire.
I pulled the car over to take the picture. It was absolutely not to be missed.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
