The Christmas Ghost decided that TWO snowstorms, one kid with pneumonia, another kid on her second snow day, and a third in from NYC who apparently has turned into a vampire and a slovenly one at that, was just the right way to knock me off center.
I was able to do some effective stash busting over the weekend. Two skeins of Noro turned into two Turn a Square hats. A bit of red wool left over from the Christmas stockings I just finsished became a Mountain Colors Pill Box Hat. Both patterns were quick knits. My gauge was off, so I was forced to do a bit of math as I did not want to down size the needles. Now the question: who is knitting worthy? Who will not turn up their noses at hand crafted with love warmth? We shall see...
Right now, I have to figure out how to wrap gifts with too many children in the house!
