A dear friend held a sewing group where everyone attended and made a Christmas table runner. I LOVE how this turned out! It also made a great gift for my little sister who just bought her first house! I'm so happy for her.

This pattern is called "Black Death", but I've done it here in yellow. The yarn I used this time is much thinner than last time so the shawl took on a different shape, but I still love it!

I'm really enjoying variations of rainbow projects lately. This shawl was made with 2 balls of yarn. One was grey and the other one was full of those lovely colors.

A lonely, somewhat ugly ball of sock yarn is now a hat.

Blue socks for Katherine. She's still wearing through them as fast as I knit them. I'm getting more darning practice but hoping to find the balance.

I've been wanting to venture more into colorwork with my knitting for a while now. This pattern has been in my queue for so long that I finally forced myself to prioritize it. I've been watching the Netflix Slow TV Knitting night and I LOVE IT!! After seeing all of those great mittens and sweaters I knew it was time to tackle the hat.
I really enjoyed knitting it, although, I need to work on the tension of my floats a bit more. I'd even like to try the mittens at some point but south Florida living doesn't really inspire hats and mittens.

Katherine loves hand knit socks. However, she wears them always when at home. As a result, she wears holes in them. I am not a fan of darning holes, so I decided that making more socks would keep them from wearing out as quickly.
