Our lovely daughter turns 16 today – and no, I am not going to embarrass her with naked baby pics, or teenager pics, but I will say that it has been an amazing thing to watch her grow into the young woman she is today. Who knew it would be so much fun??
I have been busy with hand work, of course, and have these to show for my efforts:
Hands of Blue by Lucy Hague – a fun knit that I ended up doing 3 times for 2 fingerless mitts! My fault, not the pattern! Knit with Paton’s Classic Wool in denim.
And this little mitten ornament is from Dickens Mittens by The Cross Eyed Cricket. I added some back stitching around the chains and used the #4 braid that I had on hand, but I think it captures Marley’s Ghost quite well.
And these are the first socks of 2015 – Tomar Cable Socks by Impeccable Knits in Cascade Yarns Sporty Stripes. This was a test knit for Luise – look for the pattern to be published later this year.
And now I must go bake a birthday cake – Blackout Chocolate Cake is on the menu today!
