A Little Knitting

I haven't done a whole lot of knitting while on this trip because I've been playing with my new ipad mostly.  I have managed to get two more mitered squares finished though, so I'm fairly pleased with that.  Here are the finished squares.

The Travel Sock

As I was traveling yesterday, I did what I always do and started a new travel sock. I was even able to get a good chunk of the cuff knit.  Of course I brought a ton of things to work on while lounging around, but there should always be a travel sock when on the road in my opinion.

I wish everyone a very merry Christmas!  May you find lovely yarn and notions under the tree :)

A Finished Hat

Well, I finished the chemo cap for my friend's aunt.  I tried to publish a post from my phone, but it blew up, so here's the finished hat:
And I pulled out an old WIP from the craft room this morning.  I'll be trying to finish up the Noro mitered squares blanket that I started ages ago.  Looks like I had about 6 skeins of kuryeon in my stash, so hopefully this will be enough to finish up the blanket.

More Hat Knitting

I also worked on the windschief some last night on top of weaving the scarf.  I am now on the final crown decreases and should be able to finish up the hat at lunch today. Here is the progress so far.

Another Project

The great thing about having a loom at your disposal is the ability to make quick gifts that would otherwise take a much longer time. Tonight, a Christmas present for my new boss was started and completed within 2 hours. It was just a simple weave of yellow warp and blue weft for the school colors. Gotta love quick projects!

Another Work in Progress

The next project I am working on is the Windschief hat by Stephen West. I have made the hat before, but when a friend asked me to make a chemo cap for her aunt, I knew this pattern coupled with some lovely malabrigo would go wonderfully together. Colorway is nostalgia and it is being made on size 7 needles.

On a Roll!

I am on a finishing streak!  Finished the sweater, and then today, I finished a project that had been sitting in the bin for almost 3 years.  I had made four flowers after I returned from Korea, then put it aside and didn't touch it for three years.  I'm glad it's finished now, and despite it having more flowers than the pattern called for, it turned out really nice.  Here's the finished doily:

The pattern is the Rose Doily pattern that has been in a lot of booklets over the years.  Here is the Ravelry link: clicky

Finished.  Done.  Complete.

Yes, after months of work and miles of garter stitch, on Thanksgiving day, I completed the pleated jacket.  It's huge, but I am in love with it.  It's warm and soft, and cuddly.  Anyways, here's a picture to prove that it is all finished now!

I also finished another pair of socks for Ms. Phyllis at work, but I finished those quite a while ago now.  I have been super swamped at work recently as there were a lot of changes in my department.  Long story short, I was promoted and given a lot more responsibility, which meant a lot of extra work to sort through as I moved into my new position.  Things have finally calmed down some, we are caught up, and I am getting back to crafting on my lunch break.  So anyways, here's the finished pair of socks:
