Filling the Hours

Over the break, I did a bit of knitting, but generally avoided it so I could pay more attention to Jeremy. Therefore, I don’t have a single finished project to report yet. But when my fingers were really itching to knit, I worked on my third Flower Basket shawl.

I am also nearly done making Jeremy a double-sided wool hat, which has been speed-knit the past few days to combat the temperature out there in NYC. It’s easy knitting, but knit at a rather tight gauge to be extra warm, so it’s hard on my hands. Plus, knitting a single row on it takes about four times as long as one row on a basic hat. Hopefully he’ll get a lot of use out of it.

Jeremy, the hat should be finished today, and I’ll mail it Monday. Think your cold earlobes can hang on another few days?
