I had just a little yarn left. And this yarn is too nice to turn into dryer balls. A quick search on Ravelry gave me a few options for a headband. Another quick knit! And I love it. It actually fits! And of course all the girls want it. Lucky for me it doesn't fit them. But I know I will be making some in smaller sizes.
Here is the first of hopefully many sweaters knit before Christmas. I have a lofty goal of having a handknit sweater for each family member under the tree. This one will be the most tedious, a pattern with a lot of detail I've never done in a lace weight yarn. What was I thinking? Oh yea I couldn't say no to those green eyes and big smile.
As for the other sweaters, the patterns are picked out and two of the four yarns are ordered. Hopefully to be here before we head to the beach. I plan to get a lot of knitting done while we are at the beach!
