December is Lots of Teeny Projects Month
December 2nd, 2007 | View Comments
NaKniSweMo is over. I wore Rogue yesterday, decided it needed some finesse in the shaping, and am now re-blocking it. So I guess I didn’t make the deadline. Boo. But I did finish all the knitting in November. So I’ll call it a half-victory.
But I’ve been knitting almost nothing but sweaters (re-knitting old sweaters, in fact) for the last two months and now I really want to cast on for a billion tiny things.
Already in progress, the Haruha scarf:
I wanted a black lacy scarf and had bought some Joseph Galler Superfine Prime Alpaca for this purpose. I had originally planned to design the scarf myself, but then I found this pattern on Ravelry and decided it was perfect.
Other items in the queue for December:
- Another pair of Wave of Babies Booties, after which I will post the pattern
- Anemoi Mittens
- Tillie, if I ever manage to decide on a color
- St. Peter Port Stripes Socks, from Folk Socks
- Snowflake Socks, from the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits
And a hat for my dad (who, after six months of chemo still has a full head of hair), if my mom, dad, and I can ever agree on what constitutes a warm and wearable but not-doofy hat.
Currently, we are at an impasse. My dad likes those hats with furry brims and earflaps, and my mom and I both find those Extremely Doofy. My mom likes this one hat she bought, which I also find Extremely Doofy, and my dad refers to it as a Communist hat. I rather like the ski hat from Never Knit Your Man a Sweater, but I suspect my dad won’t like the top.
Ahh, the joys of knitting for family. If you know of any not-doofy patterns for a man hat, please leave a comment.
