That's Enough

I've reached my limit. Eight Santa hats with matching booties for The Preemie Project. I began the first hat last Monday (though I didn't post about it until Friday) and finished the last pair of booties this morning. Each set represents three hours of knitting. I consider this time well spent. Knitting for others gives purpose to my passion.

For the rest of the week, I'll continue Knit Unto Others by working on a bereavement set (also for The Preemie Project). I haven't decided which pattern to use yet, but I have decided on the yarn: Plymouth Dreambaby. I was lucky enough to leave the 300th comment on Megan's blog, Woolly Interlude, and win this great yarn along with some beautiful Lorna's Laces.

Thanks, Megan! You must have handpicked this especially for me. It will be put to good use.

  2. Oh, those hats & booties are just too cute!

    Which Lorna's Laces is that? Looks like shepherd sport, perhaps. That's the Vera colorway, isn't it? That's the one I have in the Helen's Lace, which I still haven't done a thing with.

  3. I think the bereavement knitting projects are wonderful. My parents lost a baby before I was born. My mother was only able to hold her once, and that was after she had passed away. After 50 years, she still mourns this loss and talks of holding her baby. I know these mothers and fathers will be comforted by your knitting.

  5. The hats and booties are so cute. You deserve that yarn....the colors are beautiful.

    Thanks for your comment. The shop owner did not design this one.

  6. I know the knit until you run out of yarn or are just too sick of it feeling! Your hats and booties are adorable. And I'm late to comment, but your v-neck cardigan looks fantastic....very professionally finished, congratulations.

  8. How sweet are those hats and booties? Definitely time well spent, you put me to shame I've only done 2 of my Preemie hats. Well done!

  9. Yay for so many hats and booties! And Yay for the beautiful v-neck cardigan - those pictures are wonderful! It looks like it fits you perfectly. I know you must just love it!

    Winning the contest was perfect - getting that Plymouth Dream Baby. I think I have some of that - it's great for PP items. :)
