Background knitting.

That's what it is these days. I'm so busy. A good kind of busy taking care of someone I love. But I as still knitting in the background whenever I can. So that helped me to complete 2 projects and start a few others.

What have I got done?

First there's the

I made one in blue a long time ago and loved it. Nice and warm. But ... not fond of the color on ME. I bet it would look good on my dear daughter though. It's certainly warm. And she does the plowing at her house. She's worn the felted mittens I made her all the time this Winter. So I know she'll use the Nomad Hat & Scarf as well.

I also finished some mittens. I hadn't intended to knit these but others in our group were and very excited about 'em. So of course they peaked my interested and I "whipped" some up. I ended out LOVING them!

I feel very "fanciful" when I where them!

And I said I would never do it ... never knit knee highs or boot socks right?


But what knitter doesn't changer their mind? [a number of times]
