Still knitting

I do have some new beads but the knitting seems to be taking my focus at the moment. I started a rather ambitious project (ambitious for me) and it is taking longer than I had planned. My goal is to finish everything that I start before casting on another project. If I am not happy with the direction it is going, I just rip it out instead of letting it sit unfinished. Yarn is too precious to waste! Here are a few of the things I have completed lately. Some of the hats went to my daughter who lives where it is cold and others to a family friend who is going through chemo. The little fingerless gloves will go to my daughter if she will wear them and if not, they are mine. I was very proud of myself knitting a thumb! When I first started trying something besides straight scarfs, I didn't know what I was doing but with the help of books and gracious knitters who write tutorials, I am slowly adding to my stitch repertoire. My studio is beginning to feel lonely and I have promised myself that I will start making beads on a regular basis soon. But for now, the knitting needles are still calling.

Wow, these are all fabulous! What a lucky daughter you have! These are so impressive, the stitches look so difficult.
