Update On Knitting

This past month I've been getting a head start on some of the presents that I have planned to make for Christmas this year. I've also had to make my own patterns for the hats and fingerless gloves as I couldn't find that right one. Not to mention that I had to teach myself how to do a thumb gusset. You know...where your thumb goes. So I now have two hat patterns, one fingerless glove pattern and now I'm working on the second fingerless glove pattern. It really has been a lot of fun! Here is one of the fingerless gloves that I finished last night:

This matches the hat that I made earlier. Here is a close up of the top of the glove.

Once I get the second pattern figured out and then knitted I'll post a picture of not only that one but of it's matching hat.

Those are really cool! I am knitting some wash clothes to go in with people's presents/stockings. I am only on my second one, but they are so fun to make. Hope to make at least 4 of them.

I love your blog! We have a lot in common, I believe. We will be married 18 years, I am also a "misplaced midwesterner" and I love crafts. Just started knitting but there really isn't a good knitting store around me (to teach and help:-) For now, my daughters and I are making huge chunky squares for a quilt. Your work is beautiful. If you know any basic hat patterns, let me know:-) We would love to make some for cancer patients.
