I finished the bag I started for the youngest. She has seen me knitting on it, but doesn't seem too interested in it. I know she will love it though. She is just preoccupied with important things ... like playing with her friends. I did the strap in double knitting, it makes for a very strong strap. I just need to find the right button for the closure. This bag is knit in Cascade 220, I love to felt with Cascade.
I also knit up a little pair of baby socks. The 2 ladies I am teaching to knit socks right now will both be having a baby join their families in the near future, and wanted me to write them a pattern. The one is pregnant, and the other is going to be a grandma. I love baby socks, they are just so darn cute. These are knit in a superwash merino on size 2 needles. They look a little gray in this picture, they are actually an icy blue. I just need to type out the pattern before Tuesday.
I am working on a hat for my daughter's teacher for Christmas present, per her request (the teachers, that is.) I made her a scarf last year, she wants a hat this year, too funny. She is teaching a multi age group class this year so Lauren got her 2 years in a row. I think it was planned so she could get the hat.
