So you remember all those leftovers, here is what became of them.
A crazy little hat for Simon.
Just a simple roll brim hat, I aimed for a gauge of about 16 stitches over 4 inches, paired different blue yarns at random and just knitted a stripe or two and then grabbed something new. It knit up quick and was fun, the ends were a bit picky to weave in, but not too bad. I quickly skimmed them under the yarn, this hat only has to last a season not forever.
I've received the most compliments on a knit object ever with this hat. I took Simon on a little yarn crawl after it was made and everyone kept asking what yarn I used, it was a nice boost to my knitting ego :-)
This here is Peter's first Christmas sock. The second has been started. They are the Log Cabin Socks from Handknit Holidays. Hurts my hands to knit them, but they are quick.
Fiona was begging me to take a picture of her, I said ok, but she had to hold still. She said I'll put my arms up mommy. ??? I'm not sure what that has to do with holding still, but she's pretty cute.
Today was a good day, I was up early and had a head start on the kiddos, we were done school early, made brownies and did some major cleaning in the basement. It's amazing how good I feel when I'm productive, I would like to try and make a habit of it.
Also, thanks for all the encouragement about my feeling stretched thin. It means a lot to me and it's nice to know I'm not alone :)
