Another 22!

I passed out another 22 sets of fingerless mitts yesterday. The girls were very excited, and now the boys are asking for them! I told the boys they will have to wait until after Christmas. I guess my Christmas break has now been planned!

Yesterday I was asked to teach tatting to homeschoolers. The answer is yes! Our plan is to start the week after Thanksgiving. There will be 3 - 5 kids and possibly some parents. I am very excited to share my favorite lace making technique!

Infrequent blogging

I keep thinking I'll blog more often, and it just hasn't happened. I'm enjoying knitting and tatting way too much!

It's been a long time since I've knit a hat, and I decided it was time to get back into hat knitting. I'm using the Hat Knitting 101: Basic Beanie Hat Pattern from Craftsy. The class is presented by Jen Lucas, who gives very clear instructions. The yarn is Red Heart Chic Sheep by Marly Bird. It's a really nice yarn! the color is Velvet.

I'm still knitting wrist warmers for the high school girls. I'm hoping to have my second batch of 22 finished before the Thanksgiving break. I have ten pair finished, so I should be able to meet my goal.

It's time to start tatting Christmas ornaments! This year I've decided to make all of the ornaments the same, sort of an ornament of the year. I'm using my December 17 button ornament pattern. I'm not sure if I like the gold thread with the red and black buttons, but it's what I've decided to do!
