My knitting has been a little scattered lately. London really wasn't conducive to getting much knitting done. By the time I blogged in the evenings, I was ready to hit the sack, so for almost a week I knitted about 3 rows on the mittens I'd been planning for Elizabeth. I carried my knitting with me thinking the plane ride home (9 hours!) would afford me a chance to get some done. Unfortunately, my needles were deemed weapons, and after patting me down, they were confiscated. :( Needless to say, I have been a knitting fiend since returning home to make up for lost time!
I did finish Elizabeth's first mitten while she was gone for the weekend, but then had to wait for her to try it on before beginning the next mitten. Waiting can be so distracting!
And I became hooked on another project. I decided to give socks another chance with this squishy superwash wool from Cleckheaton. Toddler socks seemed like they might be an easier endeavor, and surprisingly, they went swimmingly well after my last try.
He, of course, wouldn't keep them on for a decent picture since this sock "doesn't match the other one!"
(Excuse the horrid picture below. I didn't get finished with this until after sundown.) I finally put the finishing touches on the baby sweater and hat I'd been working on. This sweet set will be delivered to it's new home this weekend for a new baby that will be arriving soon in my extended family. I thought the vintage buttons worked perfectly on this little kimono.
The great outdoor challenge is a breeze so far with this wonderful (although very hot already!) weather we're having. I didn't take many pictures this evening, but I did catch Finn sniffing flowers again.
