Lot’s of stitching and knitting going on since I last posted.
My finished knitting projects: This is from a mystery KAL on Craftsy. I made this from the kit sent to me when I signed up for the KAL. When I finished it I gave it to my daughter. I liked the pattern so much I purchased some more yarn (the same yarn that I had in the original kit, because it is so soft) and made a second hat for my son. These beaded cuffs were made from a kit that was offered through one of the Craftsy classes “Knitting with Beads”. I gave these to my daughter for her birthday. She has been wearing a black leather cuff lately and I thought these would give her some more options. My favorite it the beige one, it is made with fingering wt yarn. The black one is made with lace wt yarn and this is the one my daughter Rachel seems to wear the most.
Now for stitching projects:
These are the last two rounds of the Band Sampler RR from 2012 which I stitched for 2 of my fellow stitchers.
These are the last bands I had to stitch on my own Band Sampler RR when it returned home to me.
I began this project last year as part of the Crazy January 2012 Challenge. I put it down for more than 9 months and picked it up again at the beginning of this year. I finished it 3 weeks before my daughter’s birthday this year so I decided to get it framed right away and I gave it to Rachel on her birthday in May.
I decided to try doing a loose rotation this year to see if I could get more stitching and knitting finished. I am making a little progress.

I just finished up the second set of baby gifts I have been working on for the last couple months. This set has two pairs of socks, one is for newborn – 3 months and the 2nd pair is for 3 – 6 months. I also knitted a small soft toy. The funny thing about this toy is that it is a pattern for a lamb. But, when I put on the ears it looks like a bunny. I have now modified the pattern for the next time, less repeats of the pattern to make shorter ears and tail. My son thinks it looks like a bear and so the toy is a lamb-bunny-bear.
Now I can get back to stitching my RR’s.

One of the faster knitting projects, besides washcloths.
I had never knitted mittens or gloves before but this project has given me the confidence to go onto full fledged mittens which I started a week or so ago. But I will have to put those aside for now until after Christmas because I still need to finish my Christmas knitting and stitching projects.
