Episode 92

Hello and welcome! I’ve just added a new video to YouTube. You can see it here.

 

I’ve made some progress on some of the projects since recording and thought I would share.

First thing is I delivered the baby sweater gift and it was well received. The new dad is a trainer that comes to our office and holds a bood camp class. We surprised him before class with our gifts. He loved it and said he would take a picture of his wife with it.

I also finished one of the fingerless mitts which will be a Christmas gift for my sister. I used the little Tosh cakes and came up with this order for the color changes but the mitts didn’t use all the yarn. I think I’ll knit another pair with the remaining colors.

Here’s the finished mitt.

That’s about it for now. Here are the other projects I talk about in the video. See you soon!
