The Knitting Bag – Holiday Weekend edition

Hope the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend was lovely for everyone.

Waiting for Rain Shawl

Current Status:  Short Row Take II

Reached the second section of lacework short rows in the car traveling to Thanksgiving festivities. I need to count my stitches to ensure I have 294 before I start the section… counting requires concentration which is (un)surprisingly hard to come by on a holiday weekend.

Here’s a close up of the short row section.

Check out this pattern by Sylvia of Softsweater Knits on Ravelry (where I purchased mine) or visit her website.

Ninja Turtles Inspired Child Hat

Current Status:  Complete

Met my goal of finishing the hat last week. Once I had the color sorted it came together really quickly. I love knitting child hats because they’re such quick knits and they’re so cute. The eyes gave me a little trouble, because I couldn’t figure out what size I wanted them to be. I experimented while watching Netflix’s and eventually came to create a pair that look like a nice match and a good size. I stitched them to the hat, and it’s complete! Super excited to have finished this project.

See a photo of the completed hat here.

Still working on writing up the pattern, since I need to figure out how I actually made those eyes…. I may need to recreate them again to be sure I’ve done it correctly.
