Very simple top-down toques of my own design. Which sounds pretty grand for casting on a few stitches, increasing until it seems reasonable and knitting until the yarn runs out.
Two sets of headbands and fingerless mitts. They’re just plain vanilla 2×2 rib because when you’re carrying a dog most of the time nobody notices what you’re wearing.
Look! I remembered to take a photo of the mitts I made for Foster before they became filthy and soaked. It was close, though; he was on his way out when I screeched, “WAIT!”
When I think of all the knitwear I’ve doled out over the years without ever thinking to take a photo first…sigh. Oh well.
And look again!
Bonus shot of his new hat. I’m finally learning.
Here’s a wet-haired Anna with the scarf she knitted – all on her own – for Papa (my Dad) for Christmas. She made one for Jam (my Mom) too, out of a beautiful hand-painted alpaca blend, but it got away before I could snap a picture. There were a lot of handmade things exchanged here during my one month Journey into the Heart of Darkness (the, um, cold) so maybe we should have a photo session this afternoon.
The good news for Anna is that both Papa and Jam loved their scarves. So much, in fact, that Papa has requested a matching toque. Hmpf. He’s never requested a knitted anything from me.
