More Knits!

Your comments on my last post made me feel like such a super star, guys :)  I know you shouldn’t blog for comments, but boy do they make my day!  Unfortunately, I have to report that my husband has since cut his hair.  Yes, he was trying out for Jesus in the Passion play, but my wonderful and glorious Valentine’s Day present was this:

A (braided lock) of my love’s hair to always remember it by, because it is now, gone!  Yes, ultimately, I was a fan of the short hair.  But it was a dream of his and I supported it for a year, so that makes me a good wife, right?

Anyways, here are some other things I’ve knit in the past year!

Hat for my sister in law

Hat for a friend

Apple potholder for a housewarming gift for a friend – actually crochet

I actually wrote about knitting baby things here a while ago.  How amazing it was to be able to knit things for my own baby!

This is actually crochet.  And was very time intensive since each little square is done individually and then pieced together.  Which I hate doing.  This took me 2 months of evenings after work and much of my maternity leave the week before I had him. But I finished right before I had him.

“Tex-Ass” wool soaker ;)

Close-up of Baby Sweater…you can see the buttons.

And there’s even more out there! I made a cowl and some coffee sleeves…as well as two more dish-cloths.  I don’t think I took pictures of those though.

So that’s what I’ve been up to!

THE Sweater

Because I know you’ve been waiting with baited breath for..oh man, over a year?!

It was finished by Christmas, although pictures didn’t get uploaded until…today.  Oops.

And here’s the best picture I have of the sweater in action.  I personally think it looks a lot better on the ground, close up, with an artistic eye and nice lighting.  That way you can’t actually see how well it doesn’t fit.  Which is not well at all.  Its a little bulky and a little short.  But hey, I have a loving husband who promised to wear it no matter what so, that’s on him.

And yes, that was Texas, the day after Christmas.
