Still knitting

Even though I knit every day, I’ve been a slacker when it came to taking photos. So, I have some catching up to do.

This is a baby afghan for a neighbor’s first great-granddaughter (she is SO excited!).

I finished this vest for my hubby at the end of our cold weather. He wore it only two or three times, but it’ll be there for next winter.

Then I made two pairs of fingerless gloves, in silvery gray and eggplant. I’m planning to do a church bazaar next fall.

Fingerless gloves

Fingerless gloves are just the thing for girls and women who like to text. I’ve made two pairs recently. The red ones are my original design and are slightly smaller for a person with short fingers, like me. The teal pair will fit someone with longer fingers.

These two pairs will be on display at our subdivision’s arts and crafts fair in March.

Butterfly time!

Summer is the time for butterflies, and I decided to design and knit a butterfly dish cloth for a friend who loves butterflies. It took three or four attempts before I was happy with my design, although perhaps it looks more like a moth than a butterfly.

It’s been a long time since my last post, but I haven’t been idle. I’ve made two baby sweaters and a baby afghan, among other things. I’ve also been working on the hats and scarves for the shelter for battered women in Illinois. I’ll send my annual box of donations in early fall before it gets too cold there.
