Current distraction, and some finished knitting!

After my very hectic November I decided to treat myself.
Unfortunately I decided to treat myself with one of this years christmas must have gifts for the kids.
However, an early morning hair appointment meant that I was in town for shop opening time, and hit the right shop at the right time, as an unexpected delivery came in, so I have a new toy:

My brain age tonight is 59. Clearly I have some work to do. This will eat into knitting time.

However, in among the hecticness there has been knitting, mainly for other people, so I present:

Tiny knits for a very tiny baby.
Saartje’s Booties (small size) and One Skein Baby Hat (small size)
Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
3mm needles

Wristwarmers for E.
Fingerless Mitts, Interweave Knits, Fall 2005
Debbie Bliss Maya
5mm needles

A toque for T.
Made up hat pattern.
Alpaca with a Twist Highlander
5mm needles

I’ve actually knit this twice – first with 100 stitches cast on, which was too big, and then again with 80, which is better. The yarn is soooooo yummy I really didn’t care. It’s lovely. If you see some, buy it. It’s really soft and squishy and warm.

Slightly bigger booties.
Saartje’s booties. (again)
Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
2.75mm needles

Dublin Scarf for L.
Random stripes in the Dublin colours.
Tivoli Celtic Aran Superwash Wool (they’ve changed the blend somehow, it’s really soft now).
Yarn held double
10mm needles

Phew! I’ve been busy. More to come…
