A Knitting Tale

Ooops! I am late blogging again. Not to worry, I have not been sitting around on my head, no I leave that to my kids!

Head over heels

Please note, no toddler was hurt in the taking of that photo. JSL is strange and actually asks us to flip him upside down. If we do not understand this he will bend over and put his head down and bark at us to grant his wish.

Silly me, I decided to work on a hobby that I have been putting on the back burner recently. Of course I am talking about knitting. With both boys home for almost three weeks before kindergarten started, birthday party preparations (including building Mount Dinocake), time with family, a newly walking 15 month old, and of course reading Breaking Dawn – knitting was put on hiatus.

That is not to say that no knitting has been going on. After my summer bloggy giveaway I immediately set to work to make two M&M cloths for my winner. Since she had two children I made one for each in their favorite color to include in my package. This is what I sent to her (along with some pens that were not in the photo):

I have also been making DW Cloths here and there. Tonight I took out the collection of them that I have on hand that have not been given as gifts (whether for birthdays, just because, weddings, bridal showers, baby gifts. . . ) or used by us. I have thirteen of them in a wide variety of colors.

Here is another view of the thirteen DW cloths that remain.

The 13 that remain unused or givenaway 

Right now I am going to take a break from the DW cloths to knit a scarf for my niece who turns one in a few short weeks. Something I learned last winter was that they do not make scarves for little toddlers and in our neck of the woods, kids need them! I called my sister-in-law up today to find out what colors would be best. After several conference calls from the yarn store we came up with a lilac color. 


Slowly I will play catch up on things that have been going on here, but I wanted to update on my knitty goodness.

    The Bean also will ask to “be upside down.” I wonder what the attraction is?

    BTW I LOVE the lilac color. I’m sure it will be wonderful for your niece.

    Hi Beth! You do such a great job with your knitting. I’ve not knitted since those little looms where you do the dishcloths (I was 9). Wait, I don’t think those count…LOL!

    Can’t wait to see the scarf. I bet that will be cute. I bought a coat on e-bay when Logan was little that has a scarf with it (it buttons onto the coat with a single button). The scarf is what drew me to it. Anyway, I absolutely love that coat. Logan wore it and Lucas has worn it and will probably be able to use it again this year!
