Woodsy Association

 I finally finished these mitts for Red. I started them last year but when I tried to knit the wolf pattern it was a big mess!  So I knit both mitts and tried to duplicate stitch.  I got frustrated and put them away but pulled them out recently so they would be finished while they still fit Red.
 This is the first one I knit and duplicate stitched.  It has lots of mistakes!
This one is much better!

A finish!

Magpie finished her quilt for her little sister.  Isn't she cute??

been knitting

 So apparently, 'tis the season to be knitting.  This is the second edition of a baby hat for the family caboose.  I had to rip out the first edition because it was too small.  This is the best pic I could get because this little girl is never still!
 This is a chevron hat for Magpie.  The pattern is from a Simply Knitting magazine.  Pretty much knitted this one twice as well-the chart was wrong in the magazine.  I really should trust my instincts when I'm knitting.

This is bad pic of a quick scarf I knit for my other niece-two strands of yarn knit together on size 19 needles.  She was thrilled!  Hmmm, all of this knitting is for nieces!  I actually do have one other knitting project to show-I knit dad a new Harry Potter scarf.  Need to get a pic of that one!

First projects of the year!

Magpie decided it was time for us to knock out the tooth fairy pillows for the Mafia.  So we did!

I also figured out my goals for 2014:
  1. Follow the No S diet rules
  2. Finish my Pilgrims quilt
  3. replace my horrible sofa
  4. replace my horrid carpet
Sounds doable!

Look what my sister made me!

Isn't this precious?  My sister made it-she even posted a photo online but I didn't know it was for me!  She also found me a tea cup from Canada (we're half-Canadian).

all that's left

All that's left is to get this quilted by Christmas afternoon!  I really hope I have enough fabric left for the backing.
