New Season, New Kitchen

It has been chaotic around here with the kitchen renovation happening right under my feet. I have kept myself sane with knitting, of course!

Image

Wonderful soft and comfy socks. I think I’ll make another pair!

And a non-knit item for the girl’s birthday, a felt needlecase.

Image

As you can see I still haven’t finished the quilt for the boy 😔

Here she is wearing the skirt.

On her way to see Matilda on Broadway for her birthday. So glad that project is done. It had its own crazy issues. Oy!

Here are the projects I’m working on-please excuse the upside down, sort of, photo, the kitchen is blocked off and I can’t retake it!

Image

This is the one with the cables at the neckline. Yummo! I love working with this yarn. Perfect tension.

And then this wonderful color!

All the pieces are finished, just waiting to be put together.

Then this gorgeous thing:

Yeah, this is the one that’s upside down, but you get the picture, right? It’s called Afterlight, designed by Amy Herzog. I am so looking forward to finishing it up, and wearing these chilly spring evenings. I better get going!

Lastly, I have bungled the socks I am making. As you can see, I have knit past the spot where the heel begins, so I must rip it out….sigh.

Til next time folks…carry on and stay in touch.
