Wow! I like knitting lots of quick knits. So much so that I actually knit 31 projects in the month of January. I should say more accurately, that I finished 31 projects in 31 days. Yes - there were many hats and jumbo Christmas stockings which are all very quick - but still THIRTY-ONE projects is a lot of knitting. I don't think I posted every single on in the blog. You can look at my Ravelry project page (click on the tab that says 2016) to see what I've been up to so far this year.
Now we're on to February. I hope it's equally as good a month. So far, I have quite a few felted hats and felted projects in mind for this month. I hope it goes as planned.
Remember the Size 2 Wonderful Wallaby I knit last year? It's for a friend who has had her first grandchild and I wanted to knit something special that her little darling could grow into. As you know, the Wonderful Wallaby is one of my favorite projects to knit. But it needed something else to give it a little extra pizzazz so I found Hanna Leväniemi's Siksak hat pattern that was featured on the front page of Ravelry on February 1st and knew that was the perfect accent for this gift.
It turned out quite nicely and my Curious George was more than happy to model the finished hat.
I made a pair of children's mittens and incorporated an abbreviated version of the zigzag pattern. I added the crocheted string to go through the sleeves of the sweater so the mittens won't get lost on a toddler. Is this a thing anymore?
Together I think they make a nice set. Now there is some life to the pink baby set.
And my friend was here for Super Bowl Sunday and she loved the set. It's always good to knit the extra mile.
