Recent knits.


When I started this post, these were recent knits! Now they're well over a month old...

I have been doing a lot of knitting lately, but it's all Christmas gifts that I can't share here quite yet. But back in October I knitted myself some Halloween/fall socks! They're just plain socks, with the heel from Hermione's Everyday Socks. I love this yarn so much! It's from Murray & Co. Wool Goods, and her yarns are just so beautiful. I bought one of her Halloween sock sets, so the main yarn is called Smell My Feet and the contrasting is The Haunted Mansion. (The name of Smell My Feet made me smile because it reminded me of a home video of me and my brother as kids reciting that rhyme after getting home from trick-or-treating, ha.) 



I also knitted this adorable little bunny for my niece's birthday gift! It was so fun and satisfying, if fiddly at times, but it was also way more time consuming than I expected. As in, I was finishing it up the day before her birthday party. I made multiple little outfits to go with it but am having trouble with photo collages here, so be sure to click the link below to see the other clothes. I'm really happy with how it all turned out. And I used leftover yarn for the entire project! So it only cost the price of the pattern plus a couple dollars for stuffing and a tiny bit of tulle and ribbon.

Random little note: I really miss my blog! I use Instagram quite a bit now, but the inconvenience of typing on my phone irritates me, so I feel like I can never say much. Plus I no longer have unlimited internet, so reading blogs and writing posts myself has become more difficult. I'm brainstorming ideas though...I kind of want a fresh blog start, since I lost all of my Photobucket photos last year. Is anyone here even still reading this, ha?

Edit: Apparently the Photobucket pictures are back, just with a big watermark now? I've been a gone a while, I guess! Just noticing.
