It’s now been 6 months I’ve been “stranded in the Delta Quadrant.” As life ebbs and flows with change I find myself with a spot of time and enthusiasm to do a bit of blogging. Here are some projects I’ve worked on since we last chatted in October.
October-baby sweater completed
October-plugging away on toddler cape
That’s my Toby.
November-a scarf for Mike
Winter booties-I’ve been cranking out baby booties like mad with leftover sock yarn
March-my birthday swift
March-baby dress (knit for my cousin’s baby)
Obvious reasonable questions:
Do you have a baby that you’re knitting for? No. My youngest is 9 yrs old.
Do you have a grandbaby that you’re knitting for? No. No grandbabies yet.
Do you have a friend with a baby that you’re knitting for? No.
I just knit whatever pattern I see that I fall in love with, using whatever yarn I love most at the moment even if there isn’t a clear recipient in mind. Lately those patterns have been girl baby things. My knitting philosophy is KNIT WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY. I don’t have to knit to keep my family warm and clothed. I knit because I enjoy it, so I don’t knit practical things for my family, I knit what makes me happy.
What have you been creating while I’ve been away?
