Honey Bear Knitted Hat
This is the time of year when I dig out my knitting (and then wonder where on earth I left off on many projects). I have a few projects on the go but was able to finish off three different things recently because I chose small projects (hurrah for small projects and the quick sense of accomplishment they bring). I needed some wrist warmers and had had some on the go since last Winter. I finished off my pair and then made a gift pair as well. I'm actually finding them very handy and might need to make myself a "working" pair so I don't get my nice set all grubby. They come very much in handy when whittling or doing archery and so I've managed to get them grubby already.
all some of my thrifted stash of yarn this year. My mom had given me a small skein of hand dyed alpaca wool awhile ago and I couldn't think what to make with it. The colours were pretty....mmm, interesting and I wasn't at all sure they would look nice knitted up.
