Aaaaaand we're back. There was a dying computer scare and I've given up on the Blogger app. So I'll bang out what I can before the toddler comes over and dumps my coffee on my keyboard.
It's October, which means kitting is back! Yay! Every year I think that I will continue to knit all summer so I don't suck at it come fall. And every year I tuck it away at the end of March and forget I even know how to knit for six months.
|Please tell me this looks like a Santa hat.|
Hats and scarves are my specialty. I made a blanket once, and by that I mean I made about 2/3 of a blanket intended for my first baby and my mom fixed my mistakes and finished it in time for my second baby. So what.
The toddler needs a fluffy hat to match his brothers' and #2 has been pestering me for a scarf. And of course Halloween is coming up so I'm knitting them head-to-toe costumes. Ha ha ha. Kidding. We lost one of the hats for a costume we already have, so I knitted a replacement and I'm working on the white beauty above for Halloween, too. I have one week, minimal skill, and zero ideas for the costume besides said hat. Can you tell Halloween isn't my jam?
I find knitting to be so relaxing. It can be done while having a conversation or watching TV, which is great. I like the rhythm of it, the sound of the needles clicking. I like turning plain yarn into something. It makes me feel creative even though I'm really not. Knitting is one of the few things I look forward to during the cold months.
The big boys are taping colored pictures up all over the house to welcome our company, which is buying me some time to blog. BUT I see the toddler walking around outside of the designated coloring area with an open marker. So bye! Someday I'd love to put together a legit paragraph of grownup sentences. Today is not that day.
