Yarn Along

I love the sound of my clicking knitting needles...the rhythm and tone.
The act of knitting is so relaxing.
My hands tell me when I have made a mistake or dropped a stitch.

I have been very busy, 
let me show you guys what I have been working on...

February Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn,
free here on Ravelry.
Knitted with yarn from Arrow Acres Alpaca Farm
3 ply DK Alpaca Yarn
This past week, 
I finished this hat for my great nephew Kalmin for Christmas.

Next are all the cowls I have knitted this year for Christmas presents for my nieces.

I have knitted 5, I will have 1 for each of my nieces for Christmas.
I have used a variety of different yarns, all dk weight.

I made this so long ago, in January I think, also to gift for Christmas.
A Bandanna Scarf and a Donnie Hat

I have knitted and crocheted many more beautiful items this past year,
but this is my Christmas gifting knitting.

I started another 
February Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn,
free here on Ravelry.
I am using the same yarn I used on Kalmins hat from Arrow Acres Alpaca Farm
3 ply DK Alpaca Yarn
This hat is for my great niece Nora for Christmas.
A few months back I gifted her a pretty gray knitted (not by me) sweater.
I think this will look great with it!, my needles have been busy. youngest son is here, we are keeping each other busy.

And on a side note, he is very good at helping me ball yarn...
I told him it is good quality time we can spend together talking, he agreed.
We have balled 2 hanks so far, 
I am looking for more yarn that needs to be balled, he is a great helper!

My mother did crochet so guess what I do, but no way near as good as she did. - Margy

I really love that your son helps you ball the yarn; that is awesome. It would be a good time to talk. You have done a spectacular job on your knitting. You really have become an expert at this and I admire your work. These homemade gifts are the best gifts ever for Christmas. I know they all will treasure these gifts.
