A year after starting it, my beautiful Modern Quilt Wrap is completed. Abby and Emma are modeling it here for me. And so is the chair.
It was a very productive day, and I knitted up a ribbed hat from Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky in orange. It'll make a nice Christmas gift for a school mate, or if he doesn't draw a boy's name, Duncan would love to have it for himself.
Notice the snow? Yep, it's winter all right. It's been snowing most of the last 3 weeks. Now that the ground is good and frozen, it's not melting. Many parts of northern Michigan are having a worse go of it than we are, but we're not too inundated yet. We had a white Thanksgiving, and I'm sure Christmas will be plenty white as well.
So, I've been doing a lot of small projects lately. I've knitted another Meret for a Christmas gift for whomever one of the girls draws at preschool, and I have a little purse I designed for the other name they draw. The school is having a fundraiser this Friday evening, so I knitted up some hats, wristwarmers and a neckwarmer, then pulled several things off the shelves that I'd stockpiled for such occasions. All told, I think I donated 12 knitted items, one of my books, and Art donated two gift certificates for computer repair. Here are a few of the things I knitted up for the silent auction.
