No Excuses

Posted in Finished Objects at 8:26 pm by merknits

I really have no good reason for being away for so long, and being so far behind on my blog reading.  I even had all of last week off from work, and still did pretty much nothing.  But, I did manage to finish some knitted gifts for Christmas!

Pattern: Nathaniel by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Feza Sera, 1.5 balls
Notes: Cute!  I used a thinner yarn so he’s not quite pillow sized, but still a good gift for my squirrel-obsessed sister.

Pattern: Pink Pig by Anita Wheeless
Yarn: Cascade 220
Notes: Another cute, quick gift knit.  I don’t think mine turned out quite as adorable as the one in the pattern picture, but I still like him.

And, I actually knit two gifts and didn’t take pictures.  Crazy, huh?  One was the Jacques Cousteau  hat for my dad and a basic slouchy hat for my sister.  I think I’m ready to take on another larger project now, so I’ve started on the Apres Surf Hoodie .  A bit slow going, but hopefully I’ll have some progress to show soon.
