It's probably about time that I share what I've done over the last three or so months! I'm only sort of working at the moment which means lots of spare time to destash and make an excessive amount of winter accessories that (hopefully!) won't be needed a few weeks from now.

I've been knitting for years, and somehow this was only the second hat I've made:

I learned my lesson about using smaller needles for the ribbing. I won't make that mistake again.
(Knitty's Fernglade)

Lotus Hat

Tassled Lace Bookmark turned headband

These socks are my first! I found them fairly simple to do and would make more if I ever saw a need.. these were supposed to be a birthday gift for a friend and I kind of just forget to give them to her and acquired them for myself. Excuse the super strange angle that makes my leg look giant.

Knitty's Monkey

These were the glittens from hell! I had so many problems with them. I'm mostly satisfied with the way they came out in the end though. Pretending I even know how to embroider a little bit was more difficult than I thought. (The idea to do so was obviously stolen from Knitty's Knucks. I'm just happy that they're finally done (as of a few weeks ago) and they're quite warm! I followed Knitty's Broad Street Mittens, cept I opted for an afterthought thumb instead and used these instructions for the flip top.

Inspiration for using Sink/Swim came from The Gaslight Anthem, who have an album entitled "Sink or Swim" (which is wonderful and everyone should check out!)

And of course  I need a matching hat! Which is missing an action shot since its a little small and I haven't worn it and I either need to stop avoiding blocking or add some more height to it.

Parrotfish / Pomatomus hat

Knitty's Knucks for mi madre

Spring Beret

Star Crossed Slouchy Beret

And last but not least

Opus Spicatum for my sister.. I LOVE this pattern and definitely want to make one for myself! This was my first real time doing color-work (I've done some double knitting, but I feel like that doesn't count for some reason). I'm so happy with how it came out

So very much love to Ravelry for making it ridiculously easy to find wonderful free patterns from all sorts of generous designers

And I keep fixing every habit that I break..

Wow!  Nice work, all of it!  I like the pink and grey hat and the socks especially.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
