Of course, Laura Jean had a request which I wanted to fulfill right away. It thrills me that my daughters ask me to knit things for them, when they were much younger they wouldn't dream of wearing anything I knitted.
Here she is in her headband hat, it is a thick, cabled band, she asked for two buttons at the back which was a bit of a departure from the pattern, but turned out great.
I call these my Watermelon Socks, knit on two circulars. I am finessing the toe part of socks, so these have been finished, then undone, and finished and undone, I just want to get the toes right!
What does one do with leftover sock yarn when one is obsessed with knitting socks?
I have started a knitting Club at school, teaching the 4th and 5th graders how to knit. They have really done a nice job, this is one of them, with the scarf that she made! Well done, Madonna!
