    I just love knitting for my two children! I love to knit sweaters too, so my wee ones have a pretty good wardrobe of cozy sweaters. My mama has contributed to the collection too, and she has made most of their hats and all their mittens. Currently I am working on a few sweaters for myself because I need a style update!

    I do have a wee stash of knits set aside, just in case. I have a few little projects in mind to add to the stash too.

    This year, I am knitting from my stash and trying new stitches and techniques. Most of the things that are not my own style will be packaged away as a Christmas gift. Since I have a large family, my goal is to have a gift for everyone by the time Christmas rolls around!

    Fantastic work! How do you knit so fast without making mistakes? Is it just lots of practice or just what you have always been able to do?

      I make a LOT of mistakes (especially the faster I knit!), I’m just getting really good at ripping and fixing. ;-)

    I always love seeing your finished knits, but what strikes me today, besides those wonderful colours, is that we can almost watch the kids grow up through their photos. Charming, colourful and sweet. In a word…awwwww!

    I do both! I’m trying to knit for myself right now as I gave away almost everything I knit last year to friends and family. Then I want to get started on Christmas gifts for this year and make sure I knit something each month instead of waiting until November to start.
