Addicted to Knitting

planning for the future

Posted on: December 29, 2007

It has been a very nice vacation! My kids haven’t killed each other and that is always a good thing.

I have been knitting away. Made felted mittens for both the older kids. I followed a pattern in my mitten book I got for my birthday. They turned out okay. Not great but they will keep the hands warm.

Both of the older children are doing Winterama this year. Casey has already went and Rachel leaves tomorrow. This is a 2 day winter camp in the mountains near us. Lots of snow and sledding! Plus some Bible study too. Oh and the food at Camp Bethel is beyond wonderful.

I am still working on my eldest son’s gifts. I cannot believe I am this far behind. My goal today was to clean my room and finish one pair of mittens. DONE! YA! Now I need to do Mat’s fingerless mitts and his slipper socks by wens. I have one of each done so that should be doable.

I am going to set some goals this year for my knitting. I have to get it organized. I reorganized my yarn today when I cleaned my room and made some tentative plans….

My stepdaughter is expecting a girl in March so I set aside some yarn for her…I really want to do the UGG booties and I have the stuff…had it for 3 years…. and of course some hats. I like making hats. They are not a huge commitment yet still a great gift.

I am going to knit 1 dishcloth per week which is possibly possible. I have 5 to do for my sil’s Christmas gift. I gave her a canister of yarn with a poem of promise for dishcloths.

So if I am not here….you know why……..I am knitting. I must avoid ravelry at all costs!

Here are the mitts in progress and Jayden in his earflap hat…..(why didn’t I write down what I did?) He is grandson of my friend who lost her son a few months ago and I am in love with this baby. He always has a smile for auntie Marti…….except when she has a camera in her hand!

I think the planning part is fun, but then I want to cast on right away for everything I have planned! Jayden is a cutie!

Jayden is so cute, even without a smile. What a sweet face!! I love the mittens. Such a pretty color. Planning for a year of knitting is the best way to start the year!

Oh those eyes … Jayden is so cute in his ear flap hat. My Jayden is a girl and with big brown eyes also. I love knitting for little ones too. See you on Ravelry. 😉
