Here's what's been on the needles:
- Olive's cardigan -- knitting completed, seams all sewn, one ribbon sewn in for the button band, the 2nd one almost finished. Just need to buy smaller snaps; the ones I bought are too large.
- Caps for the Capitol -- one infant cap finished and sewn up, just need to mail it off to Save the Children. I used the same aqua-colored cotton yarn I've been using for all my baby knitting lately.
- Christmas tree ornaments -- little red cotton sweaters, 2-3 inches in size, to hang on the tree. I've been experimenting with different stitch patterns, and yesterday sewed little star-shaped sequins to them for decoration. Five done, don't know how many I'll aim for. These are destined for Art-O-Mat, for sale.
- Scarves -- finished three for Art-O-Mat, in a variety of glitzy yarns from my stash. I showed one in a blue ladder yarn to three friends, all of whom requested one for themselves. So, one of these three is finished; one is halfway done; and one is on the list of things to do.
- Chemo cap -- a friend of a friend has cancer and has lost all her hair from the chemo, so I offered to knit her a hat. Offer accepted, yarn agreed over the weekend -- a snuggly alpaca-silk from Debbie Bliss in a beautiful cream color. It was destined for a cushion cover for my mother-in-law, so I'll have to find something else for that, or buy more (sorry, Catriona!); it's the softest yarn I have, though, so the chemo cap seemed the most appropriate use.
See, I haven't been slacking!
