Knotty but Nice

This is my first knitted FO for the year 2011 and I’m glad my brother’s commissioned piece kicked me back into the knitting groove. I must say that I really miss knitting in front of the TV at night. Still it requires some form of juggling – squeezing knitting into my schedule has resulted in my other hobby – sewing – taking a backseat. So no toys for now.
The pattern was easy and quick to knit up; I took it with me on board MRT rides to and fro the office but on hindsight, I should have made the ribbing on a smaller needle. For those of you who are looking for a stash buster for those lone skeins of yarns, this pattern is perfect. I made an extra large hat (enough to cover the ears as well) and still had some yarn left (although barely enough for pom poms).
There is still some bit of yarn left to weave in and then it’ll go into the machine for a nice wash before I package it up to put aside until I finish the other projects that my brother wanted. I can’t stop saying it – it feels good to be knitting again!!!! Got me to even adding more future projects to my queue and they include lacework! I miss knitting shawls and socks.
So here’s to a good start to 2011 knit-wise…now to move onto my next piece and waterproof cameras!
