Happy November!

Wow, what a busy few months. I swear I did not forget about you, life has been JUST a little bit busy! In the midst of finalizing a wedding, dealing with some family stuff and a vacation to Las Vegas… I quit the job I’ve been at for 4.5 years and started a brand new one! I’ve loved every minute of it and it was the perfect opportunity and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

With all of that going on, the knitting was lacking just a little bit! I wanted to make sure to get the blog updated with as much as I can remember from the last few months!

Starting things off, for his birthday I knit my dad an Angry Bird. This pattern was great and the only thing I strayed away from was the way the eyes were done. Instead of doing the duplicate stitch eyes, I went ahead and just did a small i-cord that wrapped around.

I couldn’t go to my wedding without a few pieces of hand knit items. So I knit my garter and my socks for the reception. I knew I wouldn’t stay in dress shoes all night so after the ceremony I switched into more comfortable shoes.

The beautiful sock yarn was gifted to me from Jen at Piddleloop back at the end of March when I was having a bad week. It fit perfect with my wedding colors so I had to get them knit up!

The garter was some leftover JKnits from my Wendy Knits KAL from earlier this summer!

My dad is in need of some hats so the week before the wedding I knocked out three hats for him. I don’t have the yarns that I used but each hat was made using the Turn a Square pattern.

It seemed fitting that my October socks should be the breast cancer awareness socks I picked up at Stitches Midwest. I finished them on November 1st but had started them on October 1st.

My November socks are on the needles but they are a secret as they will be a Christmas present. I also have a hat for Aaron and a few Christmas stockings being made.

I promise more updates soon, as I’m settling into life with my husband! 🙂
