I’m not sure what has gotten into me over the last couple of weeks, but I have been in such a knitting mood. I suppose I pushed myself into it by vowing to finish my mom’s scarf that I promised her for her birthday last year. Her birthday is in 3 days and I just finally finished the scarf last week! I didn’t really expect it to take me a year to finish but I guess I got a little distracted.
Then over the weekend I made three more hats. I made two adorable pink and brown Chunky Knit Beanies, one for Evie and one for my niece Caitlin. I also knit up another Hot Hedd in camouflage for Zach, although with the stretch of the ribbing, it also fits me pretty well.
I love knitting hats because they knit up so fast. To speed things up even more, I decided to try knitting continental style again. I’ve done it before but never could quite get comfortable with it. I never could figure out how to purl continental style. I decided to give it another go this weekend (with some video tutorials at KnittingHelp.com) and I have now been converted. Once I got over the awkwardness and figured out how to hold my hands, I fell in love with it and I’ll never go back.
Next up, I think it is about time I knit something for myself. I have a few ideas in mind, but I can’t decide which one to start on first!
