Catching Up

I've been busily knitting.  Here's the summary:

I finished my Balsam shawl.  It turned out beautifully, and I didn't mess it up once.  The designer, Jessica L'Heureux, was so helpful and encouraging.  I wish all designers were as wonderful as she is (and have such well written patterns!)

I made a hat for my dad (with prodding from my mom...).  It's just Red Heart, but it's the size smaller than the one I made for him, and he loves it:

I made another ruffle scarf for Anna's friend at school (who is a Vikings fan, and takes a lot of crap for it):

And I made the Give a Hoot mittens for Anna.

I was going to make her fingerless mitts, but after contacting the designer (per her instructions), waiting weeks, and then getting back a message saying she's now charging for it, these were already decided upon, nearly done, and way cute!
Next up:  winter gear for the kids, and a few gifts for some wee ones that belong to friends.  So I am keeping busy (and out of trouble.  Hopefully!)
