Perfect Weather for Knitting

Nothing better than staying home on a cold wintery day and snuggling in with a blanket and knitting the day away.  I have had a few of those days this month and knocked out some fun things. 

First with my Baby Sis' birthday at the end of January I knitted her a small pair of those half moon mittens.  The small size fit her perfectly.  I hope they keep her hands warm for years to come.

I also knocked out building block #2 for our monthly knit along.  This month the point was to learn how to read a knitting pattern chart. I didn't have any problem, it was easy to remember.  Natalie end up writing it out.  I don't think she will ever like reading a chart.

Finally, I got annoyed with the pattern I was working on and decided to do something easy.  I dug through my scraps and knitted another antimacassar.  I now have 3 antimacassar hanging out in my home.  I think my goal is to knit 9 of these and then sew them all together and make a throw.  But who knows how this scheme will end.

Here is hoping during all this cold and snowy weather you have stayed warm and cozy in all your wonderful knitted accessories.
