Three sheep made for secret family name draw (a knitworthy sister-in-law), thanks to Susan B. Anderson, designer of many adorable knits. I preferred to leave off legs since they won’t stand anyway, and sitting sheep shapes are wonderful. (When someone is deemed “knitworthy,” it means they appreciate the handmade and attention/intention put into an item by the maker).
And finally, an Antler Toque from Tin Can Knits, modified slightly by K1 through back loop, P1 rib and two colors, for daughter’s friend.
The hat was actually made twice, because in my making frenzy I inadvertently read pattern for small child not adult. It fits my cousin’s baby well (the one who still awaits his mystery blanket).
May all the made items bring the wearer/owner peace and good health. It’s been a wonderful few days off work forced by power outage and continued intentionally to give myself a break, soak up good tidings from the woods and family, and feel more human.
