Bezzie's Block

As mentioned last week, Bezzie sent me a skein of Kureyon for my blanket. Here it is all knit up. Pretty. Thanks again Bezzie :0) I have been knitting up a storm on the Provincial Waistcoat this week. The left front was finished last night and I should finish the back tonight. I would love to have it finished midweek for blocking, then I can send it off in time for her birthday. I'm really pleased with how the yarn is knitting up, and how little this project is taking. I expect to use only 1 and a little bit of the 2 skeins I purchased. Brooks Farm Mas Acero. Maybe a clapotis for Christmas?

I am starting to think of Christmas gifts already. We only really buy gifts for the children of the family. I would love to make each of them something to wear (from stash, of course) - probably hats, and buy each of them something handmade from Etsy. So, what are your favourite child hat patterns? - I have various ages to knit for, from 1 year to 10 years old.

Happy weekend.

Christmas already! I know, we need to get a jump on it (I think I've only knit one gift so far!). I'll have to try to keep an eye out for cute hat patterns for you!

I love your latest log cabin block. I totally see one in my near future. Yes, I have thought about Christmas too. Looking forward to what hat patterns you come up with, I would love something easy!!!!
