Some spring knitting...

Spring is most definitely here now, and the trees have been blooming now for over 8 weeks.
I know the thrill of knitting for some is getting old, and it is now time to bust out the sewing machine and start making cute skirts for summer, but I just wanted to post a few knits that I have neglected to share. I may even find the time to update my Ravelry ( although it is "mama movie time"..so I doubt I will) which is why I posted these in the first place. ....sigh, it has been a long day. Some leg warmers for myself...they have come in SO incredibly handy this spring. I need to make many more. For the pattern I just cast on 40 sts with worsted weight wool...I think I used size 7 dpns...did about an inch and a half of P2 K2 ribbing on the top and bottom and the rest was just straight knitting. I tried them on several times while in progress to make them the length I needed. Simple as pie. I have worn them many, many times and they still stay up very well. Does this look familiar? Seen before here.


And a pointy elfish hat for my little guy. Out of the many, many hats I have made for him since his birth two years ago, they have all been pointed, I just can't resist. Again a pattern that I just made up. I won't bore the non-knitters with the pattern details, but if you do care to have it just leave a comment and I will do my best to get it to you. Does the yarn look familiar? It is part of my guilty stash from this fun day.
..... Now on to some sewing.........athough I am a helpless year-round knitter....
