Catching Up

Recently my friend Robyn pointed out that I had a few projects on Ravelry that had no featured photo, which made me realize that I've also got a fair whack of projects listed as completed that have no proper FO picture. Le Sigh! That's the trouble with being sick for 2 straight weeks, it really messes with your knitting mojo.

Well, I'm not 100% yet, but I'm feeling much better, I've cast on a few new projects, and I took some time to get a few pics of recent finished objects.

First up, Maxime's Sock monkey Hat!!!

Yes, I FINALLY got him to wear it! I'm very excited, I think we've turned a new leaf in the whole "knitwear appreciation" department. I'm stoked.

Knit with Bernat Softee Acrylic goodness ('cause it's a hat for a 2-year old). It was a quick, fun knit.

Also recently completed, the first of the 2 Woolly Wormhead Mystery KALs I worked on in November, Mayrose.

Knit with Olympus Make Make that I bought in Japan last year. I really like it, even though it turned out slightly too big for my taste after blocking (I'm NEVER blocking another hat, I swear!).

And that's that! I'm feeling better, Christmas is coming, and I am unprepared. How about you?

Happy Knitting Everyone!

I love the hat. And to think, I was there when you bought the yarn. Come back! We can shop again.

Glad to kick you in the tiny buttox :)

Cute pics! Love both hats!

Glad you're feeling better, even if you're not 100% back yet. I'm in the same boat. Feeling better, but not quite 100%.

Oh I love the Make Make yarn, gorgeous colours.
Glad you're feeling slightly better, it does take about a week after the worst before you're back to normal I think.
The sock monkey hat is lovely too. Monkey hat for a little monkey!

Christmas? Is it close? Why does my calendar say DECEMBER!?

a) Maxime is adorable. The monkey hat is too.

b) Why do you look good in every hat? I mean, really pretty ocean-colored feather and fan lace berets look good on their own...but you manage to work everything!
