Today in knitting

I made a silly list of goals for 2015, and I'm doing really well in one area: knitting. I decided last year to knit Christmas gifts for my family, and it helped me break through my habits of not finishing works-in-progress. So, here's what I've been knitting: dollies, hats, and scarves. I've no pictures of the hat, but here are a few of the others...

These are dollies I made as gifts for two children who were recently baptised as members of my church.

HitchHiker scarf pattern, so named after Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I'm not real clear on the connection, apart from the scarf being designed with 42 points, but whatever. The yarn is from the lovely Miss Babs in Zombie Prom Babette, which is one-of-a-kind-y.

Current projects include secret gift knitting and another dolly (in Camo yarn). So far, I'm on track to finish one project each month in 2015. I'm not doing so well at my writing goals... I guess I can only be successful in thing at a time.

Very cute!! I love love love the scarf-I wish I could knit but I think if I try to learn one more crafty skill my husband might go insane (I have shelves of stamping/card making/scrap booking stuff and then there is my dresser full of cross-stitching stuff. I will just have to envy your mad skills! Nice to see a post from you, I've missed them! :D

Thanks Emily! I really enjoyed knitting this scarf - it's pretty easy and was a nice change of pace from the dollies for a little while.
