More projects

Yet another Turn a Square hat, for Jimmy. Gray/blue Malabrigo Dashings for Timberly. Simple Pleasures khaki Lamb's Pride hat for Bobbi. Still to take: Black silk/merino Dashings for Mel, and a Thermis cowl in black to match. They have not come up to the house to get their presents yet. Working on a Calorimetry in the leftover Malabrigo to match TJ's dashings..... then what? I owe Mom a set of Suzie's reading mitts, and I have 2 shawlettes on the needles - for me.

Need to do the thumbs, then Mel's Rowan silk wool DK dashings will be finished. Got about 4 inches of Sean's turn a square hat done. Still to do: hat & fingerless mitts for Mom, and hat & dashings for Cheryl. A small hat or two for Christian. I'm not going to make it.

Another pair of Dashings this time for me...

Made from Manos del Uraguay, olive colorway, a little over 1 skein. Enough left to do a star-crossed slouchy to match. The were for Melissa, but she didn't like the color. There's some variation in the dye, which make them kind of glow. I love em. Doing a pair of black Debbie Bliss alpaca & silk for Melissa now - at the thumb row now. Doing those 2 at a time magic loop, which is WONDERFUL. Any pairs of anything I do from now on will be at the same time. Glad I finished mine though. Snow this afternoon and big storm coming on Tuesday.
