On and off

I’m knitting a paper chain. Yup. You read that right. The fun pattern, well it’s been fun so far, I may change my mind when I start seaming, anyways….the pattern is free.

I figure it will be my party chain, since I am finishing it post-Christmas. Here are some of my colors.

And I’ve made quite a few so far.

As you can see these knit up quick and are great for mindless knitting while watching a movie or curled up recovering from the flu.

Mittens

I met a friend out with her family on a cold night. Her daughters mittens kept falling off, reminding me of the quick reflexes we develop as parents catching items left and right as our children drop everything they are wearing. I don’t know about the rest of you but as a mom of six I have caught more than I care to remember. Anyways, I told her I would whip up a pair of mittens for her toddler with the cord attached that keeps them from dropping completely off. So I plan on giving them to her tonight and I am almost done.

Tis the season to be….knitting?

I found a great pattern for the holidays. Quick knit cabled Christmas trees! I love them. The base of the tree is a wine cork (another reason to love them). So in the spirit of the season I think it’s time to pour a glass of wine and knit a tree.
