As always, as soon as Fall hits it is a very busy season for me. This year, we upped the anti by attending a couple of craft fairs, and a summer of farmer's markets. Needless to say, by the time the holidays rolled around, I was anxious to fulfill orders on time, and boy did folks keep me busy!
A pair of very large socks - these for men's size 11.5 feet, and let me tell you - that's large. I was thrilled to make these for a friend who was gifting them to her father.
You can find this pattern free online here.
A customer found this pattern online and asked me to make it for a young boy - it was also gifted over the holidays.
I didn't realize this was a popular hat until after I knit it up - it seems there was a fairly large KAL (knit-along) a while back. Check the hashtag #baablehat on instragram, you'll see what I mean!
This pattern was not free - but purchased for me by the customer. You cand find it here.
These two little buddies were made for a first-time customer who raved about them when received. Apparently her husband didn't believe they were handmade by yours truly. I'd say that's a darn good review!
These guys are from a book of patterns by Sarah Keen: Knitted Wild Animals
And that about sums it up! Another busy holiday season behind us, an an exciting new year ahead! Bring it on, 2017!
