this week on my needles

These past two weeks have been busy! So. Much. Knitting. I have received loads of custom orders. It's very exciting but is keeping me very busy. I am working on three matching orders of hats, headbands and neck warmers, six koozies, a custom stocking, fingerless gloves and a Mr. Rogers sweater. For the hat, headband and neck warmers I wrote the patterns. I'm happy with what I came up with and will publish on the LGH down the road. I found a darling stocking pattern from a book, and I can't wait to get started on it. It has a ton of colorwork, which I really love. The weird thing about the stocking, it's knit flat. I'm not sure how I feel about not knitting it in the round, but I'm going to give it a whirl. 

I am also working on a new chunky hat with a big faux fur pom-pom. I don't think I will be able to finish them before Christmas, but it'll be a great hat for January. It's soft, warm and luxurious. 

Yesterday I finished up a photo shoot for some darling cable hats I'm going to be adding to the shop for the holidays. I wrote the pattern so I'll be publishing that on Monday and adding the hats to the shop on Wednesday. 

I purchased my very own ball winder and swift, and it arrived this week. I swear it's the best money I've spent in a long time. It's so easy to use and makes winding yarn a breeze. 

My winter class schedule is up at Hill Vintage. I'm going to be teaching three crochet classes; Crochet for Knitters, Crochet 101 and Granny Squares. The Granny Squares class I taught in November was so much fun. I'm looking forward to teaching it again in March. 

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is enjoying the holiday season!
