Knitting Mondays: Gift Knitting and a FlÃ¼gel Giveaway
It’s Jillian with a bit of knitting.
We got a new a roof for our house this fall so I am knitting quite a few gifts for winter birthdays and various holidays.
Here’s what I’ve done so far:
I knit a long (80″) infinity scarf for a friend for her birthday. I used Briar Rose Charity, doubled.
This hat and I have had many words. It’s an easy pattern, a cable rib, but it took me four tries to get it right. Now it’s going to be a hard gift to giveaway.
I’ve still got mittens, 3 scarves, a pair of socks and 4 more hats to knit. Go knitter go!
