Self portrait Monday: February 14, 2011

Happy Monday everyone!
This past week has been pretty productive. I tidied up a large part of the office, where I keep my yarn. It's no where near being clean, but it's a lot better, and Rick is much happier.
I'd been having some issues with inspiration, and hadn't knit much of anything for a little bit. I knit some baby hats (more on this further down) and then a little while later, I saw something online (I can't remember what it was) that told me to make this neck warmer.
It's knit in Homespun (of course) and it's quite a bit different from what I usually make. The grey is ribbed and the yellow is seed stitch. It's long enough to wrap around twice, and wide enough to be wrapped up and over your head while still covering your neck. I'm working on another one in a different colour already.
I've been saying for ages that I need to post photos of my knitted things online, and I am really hoping I'll actually get around to doing it this week. I just need to bribe Rick into doing it. I'm thinking Pho, all you can eat sushi, or Mongolian Grill will be the way to go. (Are you reading this Rick? Or just skimming?)
Now for the hats.
I got a message on Facebook from a lovely lady named Jordyn whom I haven't talked to in ages. She recently had a baby named Jessiah, and asked me to knit him some hats. I happily obliged.
These are two of the three that I made. The third is all dark blue. I made them on my Knifty Knitter, so I'm really hoping they fit him, because there isn't any smaller I could go.
I am going to see them tomorrow to drop the hats off and catch up.

Life is good! Happy Valentine's day to those who celebrate.

  1. Nicole- love the pix! I haven't been around lately. Shame on me. Been doing some crochet projects, myself. Glad to see you are still bending that yarn.
