I have been knitting up a storm since I’ve been home from college! It’s so wonderful because with all the craziness of school, I really haven’t found much time to knit. Even though I have a whole drawer devoted to yarn… :O
I knit almost every single Christmas gift I gave this year. Here are some of my proudest accomplishments in the past month!
The purple fingerless gloves are from a pattern adapted from Lion Brand, as are the pink mittens and the tan hat. The laptop sleeve is entirely my own design–and it will be a one time project for sure! It is lined with foam and fabric and the whole thing is hand-stitched. The pillow is my design as well, although I did a lot of research for inspiration before starting. The backside has a diamond purl pattern that is not shown. I ran out of blue yarn at the very end and was forced to bind off with white, which I was very disappointed about. But it ended up looking intentional!
I’m so happy I had all this time to make more knittys. I have several more gifts waiting to be knit and sent out (whoops) and hopefully when I get back to school, I’ll retain my drive to make things so I can stock up! This is my most professional-looking batch ever, and I am proud.
Thanks for reading! What winter knits have you been working on?
