Coming back

I have been thinking for over a month what to do with this blog. I realized that it’s time for me to wake up and start blogging again.
Last year was busy and full of surprises. I finished most of my unfinished projects. Some of them are still WIP, but hope to finish them soon.
My son wanted a knight’s helmet hat. He saw it on Etsy, and asked me if I can make one for him, so I did.
Knights hat
Knight’s helmet hat was one evening project. It took me some time to figure out how to make the visor. I didn’t use pattern and I am very happy with final product. If you ask my son, that is his favorite hat.
One of my WIP projects is a sweater for my son. I am knitting it a bit bigger, so he can wear it next winter. Hope it will fit him once is done. His favorite color is orange. I was not in the mood to knit plain, orange sweater, so I bought dark grey yarn and combined it with orange. I don’t have any photo, but plan to take some as soon as I have time (maybe this weekend).
An American Girl doll set was knitted for my friend’s daughter’s AG doll.
