The Fruits Of My Labour

As most of you know, I love to knit. However, I rarely knit for myself. This winter my son asked me to knit a hat for him and it ended up being hats for the family. Because I am in Canada and they are in the US it is a little difficult to make sure the fit is right. So I knit up 3 hats and sent them down. The ladybug hat is just adorable on my granddaughter and probably will be too small by next winter. My grandson looks equally cute in the sheep hat but if it is too small next winter he gets to wear the third hat I knit for either his mom or dad. I know why it's too small for my son or DIL. On one of the rounds the stranding was too tight. I'll have to fix that for the next set of hats. Thankfully the winter is over so I have some time to get it done. When I see pictures of the knitting in use it makes it all even more worth while.

I'm busy knitting chemo caps and was asked to try and knit one out of wool instead of cotton. I decided the Four Seasons Tanis kit I bought was the perfect choice. I'm pretty pleased with the results. I'm also working on the Tvåändsstickning (Twined Knitting) mittens. Saturday is the last class and I finished both mittens except for the gloves. Pictures to follow once the mittens are completed.
