Knitting Fool

Over Christmas I knitted these little beauties and I am just NOW getting to show them off.  Where have I been?!?!?  The girls love theirs so much I had to have a pair of my own ~ and I am happy to say that they are right now keeping my hands warm as I type up this post. ^_^

About a month ago I had the idea to knit a wrap/shawl.  Off to the store I go and three hours later I have needles and some lovely soft cuddly yarn to get me started.  The pattern I chose is Maplehurst and it is a lovely little wrap I found browsing on Ravelry  {a free site with patterns and such for knit and crotchet}

First time using a circular needle and a bit skiddish.  I had to rip this apart three times at different lengths due to dropped stitches, forgot the pattern for a few inches. However I was determined  to finish this project before the weather turned to summer in Texas.

During this project I have found that I really like the cuddly bulky yarn as opposed to the worsted weight.  I also loved watching the girls faces as the piece got longer and longer.  Hubby was so sweet he thought I was some sort of genius for the lovely stripping showing up in the fabric.  I really hated to tell him that the yarn was genius and it was self stripping.
Here it is all done ... 6 balls of yarn later and it is lovely.  I will be sending this out to my Mom for a little just cuz' I love you present.  ^_^  I will be making one for myself  for next winter!
