Today’s Table – Finished Objects

Hi Everyone! Did you miss me? We have lots of adventures to catch up on next week, but until then let me catch you up on all the things I’ve been knitting!

First there was this hat which I made for Himself in a neat 2×2 rib to go with the scarf I’d made him earlier this year.

Now that the weather has finally turned, he’s wearing it all the time!

Owing to the cold weather I decided that I needed some instant neck warmth, so I made this quick and easy cowl out of some alpaca I had lying around.

It is perfectly warm and snuggly, but with no added bulk under my jacket. Just what I wanted!

A colleague of Himself’s fell in love with a hat on Etsy that he was hoping to have for his son when he arrived, and I told him I’d fix him up with that! So here’s the Totoro hat.

It was finished with a week to spare and has the nicest shaping up the back!

I am still working on the giant beaded Aeolian, and am well into the second set of charts now.

But it’s now too unwieldy to take with me when I travel, so I’m making another Catkin in some colours I might wear more often than the teal and pumpkin!

So yes. Everything is grey. Grey like the weather, grey like the sky, grey like the drops of rain falling down the windows. It’s a cozy time of year to be inside with kitties on the lap, knitting needles in your hands, and with warm tea by your side.

How have you been letting the weather inspire your days?
