Today I'm going to talk about all the crazy knitting projects I have going on at the moment. I have some I have to do, some I want to do, and some I need to get started.
Just in time for the Husker football team to be have its worst season ever, I'm making more ornaments! I've put one at my etsy shop and I'm going to have them on display at my craft fair booths. At least we've still got the volleyball team doing well! I'm planning on branching out and doing some other schools as well. I'll definitely do some OU and Purdue.
I'm also making some baby mitts (thumbless mittens) and socks. I'm having a hard time with the sizing because I don't remember how big (or little) baby hands and feet are. Got a baby (0-6 months)? Will you measure their hand for me? I need to know the length from wrist to tip of the middle finger. On the foot I just need to know the length from heel to toe. Thanks in advance! These will also be in my shop and at craft fairs.
I'm also working on the next Harry Potter scarf for my brother, Joe. He turns 11 next month and he wants a Ravenclaw scarf. My brother, Sam, turned 12 yesterday and his Hufflepuff scarf has been in the mail the past couple of days. Scarves are probably my least favorite thing to knit. Oh well.
I decided I needed a more portable item to knit. The Ravenclaw scarf is my portable right now because it is still small. But when I was still working on the Hufflepuff scarf, I needed to start some socks so I had something to knit at a training meeting I had to go to.
These socks are using a twisted stitch decorative rib and I'm using some Sophie's Toes sock yarn that I got from my Sockret Pal. They are going to be slow going because I really have no deadline for these. They are for me!
Here is a peek at some test knitting. This is my last test knitting project for a while. I can't go into detail at the moment but here is the sneak peek.
I have some other projects on the needle around the house but they are all officially hibernating until I can get a handle on all of these other projects. I'm also working on a ton of cards for my craft fair and my Nov 15th "grand opening" of my etsy shop.
