Teal, my darling fifth grader, has become quite the knitter. She learned to purl just this year, yet her stockinette is beautiful! Off her needles recently is the Quick and Easy Owl. For the longest while she complained that she did not like knitting. It’s so fun to see her enjoying it as her skills advance.
Granny has also been showering Wigeon with some darling new knitted sets! The Cool Wool hat, cowl and mittens really couldn’t be any cooler. They are darling and so soft in a chunky alpaca blend. She also knitted the sweetest “Classic Cable” and hat from Top Down for Toddlers. Wigeon insists on wearing sweater and hat as a set all day long!
I have just begun the Turn A Square hat for Mr. Mallard. I’m knitting it with Cascade 220 and self-striping Noro Silk Garden. I was happy to have my color changes look better than in Pintail’s London Beanie with the “jogless jog” the Turn A Square recommends.
What’s on your needles? Thanks for taking the time to visit today!
