Excuse the bad picture. My camera got stranded at the shop, so I had to take this with DH tablet. Two sweaters I am knitting on, out of three. A bunch of other things sitting started in baskets around the place. I do not like having more than one project going on but right now, there is no way around it.
I love all of these projects. Each one of them has it’s own charm and has it’s own challenges and keeps me riveted to my needles.
Not the best pictures, but there you have it. Mrs. Hudson’s gingerbread house 2013. We had fun decorating it, as you can see. My daughter baked the gingerbread, I was the “architect” and Callie, my daughter and I decorated it together at the shop, like last year. This will be judged in a competition (last year we made 3rd place) and then auctioned off for charity. It’s fun and we will definitely do it again next year!
My daughter and I came up with a knitting pattern for Jodie’s hat (from the game “Beyond two souls”).
My son has watched the previews of the game and saw this hat. He went to his sister and asked her, if she could knit it for him (he knew, I was too busy, to do it any time soon). She said yes and then came to me for help charting and designing the pattern.
Together we came up with something really, really close to the game hat, if you ask me! My son is happy with the outcome, my daughter has her Christmas present for her brother already done now, and the knitting world has one more pattern!
It was such fun to do this together with my children (my son was an adviser in the creation of this hat). I would do it again in a heartbeat!
