So here's a little knitting show and tell for you:
My one skein Secret Pal is getting this for this month's swap...a skein of Skacel Laceweight Merino Wool. I love this color. I also included some Choxie Dark Chocolate Mints in a matching tin. :)
Some gorgeous Trekking XXL sock yarn that I picked up last week at knit group when I was supposed to only be shopping for my secret pal. Somehow this skein just jumped into my arms begging me to take it home.
..and...this is the hat that I made for my niece, Kaitlin as part of her 4th birthday gift. I made it in the largest size (20" circumference) and it's nice that's it's adjustable with the i-cord that can be taken in and out.
This is the final gift for my One Skein Secret Pal for August (yes, I actually finished a project early!). This is the Drawstring Bag from One Skein. I love how this turned out and I really hope my pal likes it. I am also going to include a few goodies in this bag before I send it off including some awesome stitch markers made by the lovely Anne from This Is Spiffy!
Hopefully I'll have some more finished projects soon but it's getting close to that time of year when I will have to conceal holiday gift pictures. DRAT!
Tonight at knit group I will be working on a baby hat to donate to Save the Children out of a wool/cashmere blend. Next up: holiday and fall birthday gifts.
