I know it has been a day or two, maybe a week. I went on an epic journey, consisting of a drive lasting a total of 28 hours and taking approximately 3 days. My amazing grandmother, Freddie, joined me for a good portion of the adventure to go see my brother, Jacob (adorable baby niece Payton’s dad) graduate from college! So so so proud!!
Jacob & Freddie 🙂
Jacob and the most beautiful little lady in the world 🙂
It was so nice to be with family so close to the holidays. Sadly, I won’t be making that trip again for the holiday, but we will be celebrating here in St. Louis.
Don’t worry, I’ve been knitting and finishing things!!
First up, my mom sewed the buttons on that darling sweater. I asked her to help me since they are placed a little close to the mouth of the baby wearing it and I wasn’t going to be the reason for my dear niece to eat a cherry button.
It’s officially finished and it fits!!
Second up, I finished the Black Hat turned Balaclava…
Only I’m not sure the recipient would use it. Bah!
I also finished up the Tweedy Honeycomb Toque for my brother-in-law’s girlfriend, Shayna. I know I was uncertain about it as it was coming along, but I LOVE IT!!!
The pompom just makes it! It’s definitely loosening up…I was very concerned initially because my floats were a wee bit tight.
I’ve put a few things in hibernation.
Never fear, I am still working on my #MEalong (from A Playful Day) Settler Shawl by Libby from Truly Myrtle…Woah! Talk about link-tastic 🙂 I wanted to participate in the #Grinchalong with the Knitmore Girls, but I was also technically knitting gift :(, but they may or may not have necessarily been for Christmas. Oh well, missed that boat.
Anyway, I’m absolutely loving the way this thing is working up! I just got to the cool border stitches and I just feel so cool knitting it! And the colors. And the yarn. And. And. And!
It’s for me. 🙂
I will try to keep this little corner updated, but I’m not making any promises. With short day light and lots of family time, I will probably spend more time unplugged than usual 🙂
Until next time! Happy Knitting!

oh my, a baby in a tiny pink knit sweater, that is just too cute for words!!! And those buttons are perfect!
I think that’s why I just want to knit all the things for her…the knits look infinitely cuter when they are on her!
So much to see, so much to say. That baby … I just want to kiss her cheeks and smoosh those chunky thighs. She’s a beauty!!!! And the sweater’s kinda sweet too! 😀
You’ve got a a lot of beautiful projects on the needles, good luck in trying to finish them. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Thanks! She is the sweetest cutest thing!
Wow so many projects, I can see why you have put some in hibernation. The pink jumper is so adorable and fits so perfect, how satisfying! Settler shawl is looking good, I’m really intrigued to see the finished piece.
Thanks! Hibernation helps with my peace of mind 🙂 I am loving the Settler Shawl too!
