Last night I

Linked up with Today's Creative Blog to show what I have been working on lately. I was a bit late getting my post up though and I hope I have not missed to many of you who may have come to see. Much of what I am showing here is what I have been working on in the past couple of weeks. A couple of things went to my grandchildren, but the rest to my Charity knitting. Enjoy.My Grandsons Ben ( #5113) and Cooper (#5216) who live in Dillingham Alaska wearing the hats I made them. They are 100% wool and my daughter reports they stay very warm in them.
Matching mittens for Ben, going in the mail today. Cooper already has his.
Just some cute little green acrylic socks. I will sell these as well as the rest of what I am showing you and donate the proceeds to my Charity which is to help build a church for my friends in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
This is an adult sized hat made from Plymouth Yarns Boku and Cascade wool. It works up like Noro.

A Noro, Cascade wool hat.
This hat is from Cascade wool and silk.
Just a cute little hat from my stash. This is a very fast knit. Took about two hours at the most to complete.
Acrylic Penguin hat. Still needs a pom pom on the top. I do not usually add them, but I think this one needs it, as well as eyes on the penguins. (Sold the Penguins today, December 30th. $25.00)
This is the Plymouth Yarn Boku again. It is 95% wool and 5% silk.
Cascade wool and silk. The silk in this hat and the blue one is from the same skein. It comes from Nepal. A woman there figured out how to take scraps of silk from a dress factory and spin it together to make yarn. She now receives proceeds from its sale.

This is an acrylic baby hat and mittens.
My thanks goes to my little model, Olivia. She is always so willing to help me.

I've been in a sewing mood lately so not much knitting but I have a bunch of projects ready to go and they are mostly hats. You've inspired me! Yours are wonderful. I shouldn't pick a favorite but I really like the penguin one and the ones you made for your grandsons.

I've been wanting to learn how to knit! I just love all the hats you made and the socks are adorable, too! What wonderful gifts!

I saw these on FB - just LOVE that penguin one!

Santa brought me a crocheting book, so we'll see. Life is getting in the way of sitting down to try it. Hopefully soon!

Happy New Year!
