Remember how when we last spoke, I was planning to knit up this adorable little frog for a friend of mine at work? Well let's just say it did not go well. The pattern requires you to start out knitting on double pointed needles, a first for me but not something I thought would be overly difficult. Boy was I wrong! I just can not get the hang of it for some reason. My pal Ashley even spent some time on Sunday trying to tutor me but I found it so frustrating that I just threw the needles down in disgust and starting knitting what I do a best...a HAT!
Here's a photo of the Noedel hat. I knit it up using Spud and Chole Sweater in Grass. I may get creative and make a pink flower for the brim as well.
Hopefully, I'll give the frog another try after he's spent a bit longer in time-out. He earned it.
On my needles right now is the Cowl With a Little Twist. I knit one up for myself last week and liked it so much that I'm making another one for my Mother-In-Law for Christmas.
I also worked on a new hat design last week but I won't be able to share that with you until after the holidays since it's a present for my husband and I know you are reading baby!
