Archive for the ‘snowflake hat’ Category

It’s a miserable day here, rain, high winds, and a huge dog that’s frightened of it all.  Doesn’t make knitting very easy that’s for sure.  Hamish has decided that as well as being scared of sheep, horses, cows, bubble wrap and puppies, he’s also afraid of the wind…….hmmmm scardey dog!

On a side note, I’m working on the scarf for Max’s Christmas, you can’t really see in the picture, but there are oatmeal and white stripes as well as a blue one before the huge blue section.  Once the blue section is a decent enough length I will mirror the oatmeal/white/blue stripes at the other end.  This should go nicely with the oatmeal mittens and the blue snowflake hat.

Ordered a book on circluar knitting, really fancy trying knitting socks and Christmas stockings – had to buy circular needles too!  Can’t wait for it all to arrive as the circ. needle I have is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to long/big to knit with, it’s like 100cm and I only need one that’s teeny for the socks etc lol

Discovered some fab craft blogs this morning, lots of printing & card ones as well as knitting ones – enjoying reading through the back posts – might get another cuppa and read a bit more

So far I’m 1/3 through the second snowflake hat……and then I think it will be onto the next Christmas presents…..so far my list is:

  1. Snowflake hat for baby Max
  2. Bedsocks for Mam & Mother in Law
  3. Hat & Scarf set for Step Dad
  4. Beanie for Brother in Law
  5. Scarf and Beret for Sister in Law

Can’t think of anyone else that would apprecaite or make use of a knitted gift. 
Reminds me, need to get the sewing machine out and get all the “handmade” labels sewn up and ready to attach to all the finished creations

Pictures of all finished creations to follow!

Anyone got ideas of what else would make a good knitted gift?
