All that secret knitting over the past few months has been received by their respective recipients, so I thought I might share now what I’ve kept under wraps before:
For my sister I really wanted to knit a shawl, but I ran out of time, so this Baktus scarf it was, using some Noro yarn with lovely colour changes, and my favourite sock weight yarn, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Soja.
I also knitted lots of hats. Some of which hopped on and off the needles and were wrapped up and sent off without having their picture taken, but here is one Quynn hat, made for a little friend of mine:
And then I used this pattern as a vague guide for a pile of family hats. My dad got one, too. And I liked the kids’ ones so much, using dark grey with colourful stripes, that I used the leftover to make one for myself after Christmas.
Not knitted, but a sweet little gift: Kaya wanted to make a pillow for his little brother, so I let him draw straight onto the fabric and I then embroidered his car picture.
And finally, not a Christmas present, but knitted over the holidays: A stripey Milo vest.
At the moment I am working on two little bunnies that I am hoping to finish for Kaya’s birthday this week. Two more sleeps, three more legs, four more arms to go. Plus sewing up and stuffing… and bunny shorts and bunny jumpers, if we are lucky.
Hopefully I’ll be able to show you a little preview at tomorrow’s Yarn Along.
