Knit Wednesday

Sorry for the delay with the pictures and don't say I didn't warn you about being underwhelmed, but here they are, the pics of my two finished knitting projects from over Christmas. The first is of one the fingerless gloves that I did for my DD. They came out a little too big for her and I have to take them in. I love the hombre yarn though. Each side of the glove is different. The pattern was from Hollywood Knits by Suss Cousins . A book I just love.

The next is of the roll brim hat that I did for my DH that took way too long. I'm so happy that he has worn it everyday since Christmas so it was worth the time.

I'm almost done with the hat for my DS. Poor thing, his Christmas gift is turning into a birthday gift.

Today was supposed to be my day to meet with my knitting group. After a couple of weeks off I was looking forward to whooping it up with my friends, catch up on town stuff and get back on the knitting track, but due to icy weather schools are closed today. Sigh. To me the weather is not bad enough for a school closing, but whatever. I'll try hard to keep my kids halfway focused on a bit of studying today. Not easy with teens.

That is a lovely hat! I wish I would knit.

Instead of taking those fingerless gloves in, you could send them to me and make her a new pair.

Just saying.

I LOVE the gloves! DD is a lucky of a kinds. Awesome. And DH looks adorable in the hat. Nice job!

FYI--I have picked up the needles you gave me and have officially made it a 2009 resolution to learn knitting. Beware of tutorial requests...

Kwana- your knitting is a work of art! I LOVE the fingerless gloves AND the hat. Gosh... I really love homemade gifts. I bet your gifts from the heart will become favorites of your DF.
As you begin some of your projects will you share? I admire anyone with this talent.
I wish I had the skills to knit. I get too antsy- remember my sewing story? Knitting and crocheting is no better!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

Love those handwarmers. I wish you could teach me to knit. I'm completely intimidated.

Dana said...

Okay seriously EVERYONE has taken up knitting. That hat is too cute, I want one in cranberry. *cough* hint *cough*

Wonderful hat on DH! Thanks for sharing as always!

Kwana said...

Thanks for the comments on my knitting. Clearly not everyone is at it Dana. I've been at it for a few years, but have not gotten that far yet. I seriously learned from books and videos. The hat took a long time but was really easy.

I don't mind the requests at all. N. It will be an excuse to get together.
