What I'm Knitting

I've been knitting up my stash and finishing projects.

This Christmas stocking is finally finished.  My PAL who is six months old now will have her stocking for next Christmas.

Also, I finished a prayer shawl and a hat for a friend who is doing chemotherapy.  Because I was so focused on completing the shawl and getting it to her before her next round of chemo, I completely blanked on taking photos.  Here are the particulars:  Red Heart Soft yarn in a yummy warm raspberry color.  I knitted it in an elongated moss stitch which looks something like this:


Twenty-five inches wide, about fifty-five inches long.  The hat was a simple 2x2 ribbing and plain stockinette stitch for the rest of it.  Alas, no photo.  Again, I wanted her to have it to wear to keep her head warm and covered.

Since I am doing grandma duty this week, I will be breaking my promise to not begin any new project because The New Boy who is no longer new and no longer small needs a new Weasley Sweater.  We will be shopping and measuring.  Having a Meema made Weasley sweater is a tradition.  Here he is modeling his first sweater with Uncle Grad Student.

The newest model will likely be dark purple with a blue N.

You have been busy stitching and your new project sounds like it will be very special [and in my favorite color...purple :) ] I just posted a photo of the latest baby hat I made and I think you will be proud of me because the hat looks more like what yours look like:) Thanks for coaching me! xx

Weasley sweater... LOL! ;o) A Meema made Weasley... How LOVELY is that?! The stocking is very pretty--I like the colors. I'm trying to use up my yarn stash too... All the best to your friend in chemo--blessings to her for wellness... ((HUGS))

The new boy is so adorable and of course he needs another Weasley sweater.

Cute picture! The shawl and hat you knitted for your friend sounds beautiful! And it probably feels beautiful to your friend.
