Constantly Knitting

Lately I’ve been knitting in every second of my spare time. My mom has requested some knit headbands for a couple of her antique shows this holiday season to put antique buttons and pins on, so I’ve been hard at work with those. Also a couple of my co-workers have asked me to make a few custom items for them. I really love making those small things. Instant gratification and then often I get to see the knitwear in use which means me happy. I’ve got so many knitting plans and a sweater to finish and *cough* secret gifts to make *cough* so when I’m not working or studying it’s been full on knitting mode.

I was browsing the Knitpicks website and I think I’ll be making one or two of these tiny little sweaters for our tree this year.

They’re way too cute and will add a nice personal touch to our tree. We were in Target a few weeks ago and saw some wreaths wrapped in yarn. I figured I could do one myself instead of paying $20 for one. Looks like I’m not the only one with this idea! I LOVE this one from The Pleated Poppy even though it’s not wrapped in yarn, it speaks to me. I’m going to have to plan out what I want to do and make it this week. Maybe one for Thanksgiving and another for Christmas. All of them are just gorgeous. I’m thinking we’re going to have a very yarn covered Christmas…
