Knitting for Me
January has been called "Knitting for Me" month. Well, it's February and I'm still baby knitting. Knitters have started to hang a name on the time period after the holiday knitting rush is over. I don't participate in holiday knitting. That kind of pressure could really take the joy out of Christmas for me. I'm all about the joy!
After completing a sweater and blanket for the grandbaby born in November, I'm now smack-dab in the middle of knitting a project for the next baby coming next month. So much so that I almost forgot to take a picture of the scarf I made last fall. It's knitted from a blend of wool and silk, a fiber combination that's a bit glossy and nice and warm. I love, love, love Solo Silk from Brooks Farm in Texas. After the baby knitting is finished I'll be making a shawlette out of their Willow (wool and bamboo). By the time that's off the needles, maybe it will be time to play in the dirt.
