Musselburgh Hat #6

We got yet another round of snow this week and it sounds like there is more coming. I was happy to find an undisturbed spot for a photo shoot. 🀣 Don’t eat or photograph the yellow snow!

I finished another Musselburgh hat with the green yarn that I dyed for my son and I still have some leftovers for baby socks.

I’m think about taking a break from hats and socks to cast on a sweater this weekend. I have a handful that I’ve been wearing daily the last several winters and they need to be replaced.

Pair 142

Greetings! Another week has gone by and our snow is finally starting to melt but we’re expecting more rain, ice, and snow later today. I guess it’s just going to be one of those MidWestern winters.

I knit another heavyweight pair of boot socks. I love these for walking the dog. I have almost enough natural dyed yarn to knit another pair. I think I’ll just add in some bare yarn and call it good.

Musselburgh Hat #5

Greetings from the land of snow! I had a lot of time to knit this hat last week after we received more than 20 inches of snow. It’s so deep that our 90 pound German Shepherd looks like she’s swimming in it. This hat matches the socks that I finished last week. I still have a small amount yarn left over to knit a few pairs of tiny baby socks.

Pair 140

My first pair of sock this year are for my husband’s Christmas socks. Nothing like planning ahead. I’ve also got a Christmas hat started and a needle point decoration in progress for him.
