Knitter's ADD


I'm been knitting. Kinda like a maniac. I knit 6 hats for Christmas presents in a week. Then I stalled out. I started a toddler sweater on a Sunday and finished it the next Sunday. I've knit 1.5 Halloween dishcloths this week. The first one still needs to be bound off, the second one I stole the needles to use for a pumpkin hat that was suppose to be for this weekends trip to the pumpkin patch (that has been called off due to being sick). I bought needles to start my Barn Raising Quilt (no timeline, just whenever I feel like making a square) and needles to knit a pair of socks (yeah, I only had size 2 dpns and I needed 0, good thing Twisted was having a sale)

And I have no pictures to verify any of this.

Oh, I know. I didn't share this:


I started knitting this for Sabrina a few weeks before she was due. I would have had it finished if she had been on time. Oh well. It sat buried in my stash for quite awhile. I found it while I was looking for something else and realized I could finish it for my cousin who is expecting. I think it is my best February Baby Sweater so far. I love how the Socks that Rock turned out after washing and blocking. (Ravelry link)

I think I may try to make one for Sabrina is a worsted weight yarn.

And here's a picture of Sabrina with her Great-Great-Aunt Lou:


This is one of those pictures that I'll cherish forever. When I saw Sabrina sitting there, I yelled "where's the camera?" and at least 3 cameras showed up (including mine). Sabrina really made Aunt Lou's day.
