Double stranded. Merino wool and acrylic. Warm and fluffy. Extra soft. Not too tight. Just perfect. Just for me.

While we were holed up this weekend waiting out a snow storm, I finished up these three quilts. The top one is for Boo, the middle one is for Miss M and the bottom one is for Little H. I am really happy with how they turned out and I really hope the kiddos love them.

I felt so inspired as I declared this the year for a handmade Christmas. I planned out my gift lists and bought supplies. A few months ago, it seemed easy peasy to whip out new quilts for the three little ones. Now as Christmas quickly approaches... I'm freaking out.
I did manage to finish quilt #1. This one is for Boo. It is filled with all of the things he loves. The back is a snuggly fleece with all sorts of balls on it. I hope he likes it and doesn't notice that some of it looks like it was sewn by a drunken monkey. (No offence to any monkeys reading this blog.)

I've been a little obsessed with knitting lately. I've got at least two projects going at all times and I rarely go anywhere without my knitting bag. I knit a lot in the car when while I'm waiting for Miss M to get out of school. In the evenings I can often be found painting new sets of knitting needles. As I looked around my house yesterday, I had to laugh at some of the evidence I saw of my obsession.
A look at my dresser.

It's been a busy weekend. I've got 5 sets of knitting needles and one pin cushion to package up and get out the door, plus a custom order for 3 sets of knitting needles. On top of that I have a few more designs that have been jostling around in my head. I'm not going to be able to rest until I give them a try. I'd better be productive tomorrow!
