Sheesh, another week has gone by. Well I do have a very good reason - I have several knitting orders that I am working on completing. I've done a couple of owl hats, a couple pairs of wrist warmers and some cowl/hoods - two for little kids and two for adults.
here's one set that I just finished for a little girl who turned 9 this past week:
Her mom took her hand measurements in her sleep. She told me her had was 15 cm around (not including the thumb) so as I was knitting at the kitchen table I happened to pick up a bottle of hot sauce and found that it was 15cm around, so I used that to size her fingerless gloves. Purple is her favourite colour and she is thrilled with the set.
The one odd thing was I could not get an accurate read on the colour. I tried three different cameras and different settings and they came out wrong - often blue and not purple at all. The yarn as a deep grape colour but I just couldn't capture it.
Anyway that's what I've been doing. Taking advantage of some orders before sales die down in January.
