To keep my mind off of everything else, I have become an avid knitter. For Christmas, I made a knitted scarf for Drew’s dad, a shawl for his stepmom, knitted and felted mocs for Laine, Papa, Lakin and Addah, and a scarf for Stephanie. I’ve also made a few knitted cellphone cases, a cute little penguin that I decided to give to Drew’s brother, since he’s into Linux. I have a feeling he won’t love Mr. Penguin like I did.
Addah’s felted mocs… from the Little Turtle Knits pattern with LTK yarn in “feisty”:
Lakin’s felted mocs… same as above but with LTK yarn in “grape crush”:
And Laine’s felted mocs… this time in highland wool from Elann.com
These are my favorite thing I’ve made this season…. a LTK braided cap with mittens for Addah, from the same LTK “fiesty” yarn:
Right now I’m working on orange felted mocs for a secret someone…. a felted wool cloche hat for myself and Lakin wants a braided cap like her sister and I think I have just enough left of the skein for one so I may cast on for that tonight.
