My brother asked me if I could knit him a toque that would match his neon green ski pants and black jacket. He texted me a picture and my first thought was where in the world was I going to find neon green yarn. Then I remembered I had some leftover from making mittens a few years ago. Gotta love stash! It's the popular Turn A Square by Jared Flood.
Next up is a classic case of "the cobbler's children have no shoes." During our two weeks of winter Jay was trying to find a hat. It turns out he doesn't own one. Feeling somewhat humiliated, I quickly cast on a Rib-A-Roni with some lovely Madelinetosh yarn. (The hat is being modelled by my son-in-law due to the fact that my husband has decided to grow a beard. This blog is officially boycotting the beard. )
This pattern has been in my Ravelry queue for quite some time. It's Rye, by Tin Can Knits. I knit a man's size with sport weight yarn. This was a quick and fun pattern!
Just in time for Valentine's Day! A Milo with a heart cable pattern. Another great "go to" baby pattern. I made a couple for Lucy when she was little, and now it's Ella's turn.
I was so happy with how this Wee Envelope by Ysolda Teague turned out. It fits perfectly, and I think it really suits Ella.
This last photo isn't something that I knit this month, but I wanted to show you Ella wearing her Christmas Licorice Allsorts sweater. It's still a bit big, but that's okay. It should fit perfectly by the time spring rolls around. Doesn't she look like a wee gnome?
January is just halfway over, so I'm sure there will be more knitting completed before the month ends. What do you have on your needles?
