Sitting and watching the Olympics sure has been profitable for me. I'm finishing up some UFOs that have been hanging around for a long time.
This is a knitted hat for a little guy. I have no little one in mind, but I'm betting I can find someone who would like it sooner or later.
Finished this little hat using the remaining yarn from two different skeins. I was so close to running out of yarn that I didn't even have enough yarn for any kind of a tassel on top. Do you think it looks okay without that little touch? Both these hats are toddler size.
It seems like the second sock to this pair I made for myself took about ten times as long to knit as the first one. Why is that? I'm pleased with these . . . and they even fit! The only thing I would change if I use the pattern again is to make the ribbing at the top wider. I'm sure they are going to stay up with no problem, it's just that a wider ribbing would look better visually to me.
Only one more vine/flower panel to go on the spring shower curtain. I started on the third one (shown in the picture) this morning at 9:15 and finished it at 12:15. So now I know it takes three hours to do each one. Amazing that it takes that long, isn't it?
Shower curtain isn't done, of course, but I'm so happy with all the little projects I've been able to finish recently. Gee, if the Olympics were on more often, think of all I could accomplish!
