My children requested hats this winter. I knit 5 but only have photos of 3. Will try to get photos of the others as well.

For 10 yr old faughter.

For 17 yr old daughter.

For 7 yr old son.
They all picked the colours themselves.

Noro Silk Garden Striped Scarf

This project was a lot of fun to knit. I was using 2 blls of Noro Silk Garden yarn and just alternated balls.

I love how the colours are striping and this yarn is very yummy.

OK, so it is fun to photograph also.

Still more pohotos from this year.

This is the latest shawl I made. This photo is pre-blocking. I will up date with a photo of it blocked next week when I give it to the recipient.
Penguins requested by friend who is going to be a grandma. Not what I usually knit but I am always up for a challenge.

All I had was a pattern for a duck. I altered the pattern to make the penguins and then added hats.

My 7 yr old son helping knit a scarf for his great grandma who is 92.

We even got Dad in on the project. That is my 10 yr old daughter giving him instruction. He did it quite well. I was surprised.

More photos of various shawls I have knit this past year.

Kauni yarn is sooo much fun. This is one of my favorite shawls.
The shape of this one is great. A mystery shawl from Renee.
A stole with beads. You can't see them, but they are red. mystery stole from Melanie.
Garden path shawl from Knit for a friend.
My first attempt at grafting. Next time I will do it looser.

Random Photos

Time to update my blog I haven't been on here in a long time but I have still been knitting, and homeschooling.

These are just some random photos of things I have knit, in no particular order.

This is a section of a mystery shawl that is heavy with beads. It was a lot of fun.
