Will be back posting shortly

I can't believe it's been a year since I last posted. A lot has happened in that year: a new house, lots of renos, and my father battling (and still battling) heart problems. Of course, during stressful times I knit...and sometimes more than usual. While Dad was at the hospital, I knitted over fifteen baby bonnets which I donated to the maternity unit. I've also knitted socks and mittens as thank you gifts to our family friend that were so caring, thoughtful, and very helpful. I wish I had taken pictures of all of them, but I only took a few.

These mittens were knitted for Dad's friend when he works outside in the cold. I had no patterns for these, so I made them up. I knitted them with Briggs & Little yarn, which will felt a bit after the first wash, and make them really warm. He was quite happy. I also made this other pair which were a little big on him...
