I've started to crank out some little knits again. I'm determined to get my enormous collection of scraps under control. I've got more scraps than I do full skeins of yarn. It is depressing.
To work on that, I've whipped out a few little ditties this week.
First was a sweet little vest for the Bandit. A Milo - which I've knit before - is super fast and easy and great to wear. I used some bright, vibrant yarn from my favorite peeps - Western Sky Knits - and some miscelanny balls of self dyed yarn to stripe it up a little. I can never get enough stripes!
To finish the skeins of WSK yarn, I made a simple, yet highly effective hat, Basic Winter Hat. I've already made this one before too and find it really great to have in my wool bag (yes, I have a bag of wooly objects in my car) because it fits everyone. I finished the top with some fun little leaves.
Finally, I did a pair of super fast mittens for Reagan. I accidently felted the first pair of made for him. Luckily, they fit the medium boy so no big loss. With super bulky yarn, these came together really fast!
I've had a bad case of startitis lately. I just cast on a pretty cowl - Sylkie, and a hat to use up the last of my Shelter yarn, and of course, endless amounts of hexipuffs to make...oh and that other leg warmer that I can't make myself finish. Oh....and that cardigan I really want to make yet can't decide with what or what pattern to actually do...ah, Knitting is so much fun.
