This is what I have been doing . . .

Other then living in the land of the hat - this is what I have been doing! These knucks are a little bit of a cheater, because I finished them a while ago. My hubby really wanted skulls on his hands, so while flying to VA last week - I gave him the skulls! He wears these all the time. I am already thinking about what to do for his next pair -- after christmas . . .

This blanket is for my MIL - it is the one that my husband rolled all the yarn for back in that old post last sept. - she chose the colors (not my favorite, but she is a big Packers fan). It was really fun and pretty fast to knit. It turned out a little larger then I thought, about 54"x78". The best parts about it are that it is super soft
(thank you, Blue Sky Alpaca), super warm and has a great weight to it! I will be sad to not have it to knit under. Although, I am thinking of making one for Mubs next spring . . .

Back to the land of hats (and knucks) . . . more soon!

great knucks. The skulls are super cool. I think the blanket is pretty too. One of these days I need to find patience to actually knit a large blanket. I used to crochet afghans, before learning to knit. But that was years ago...

wow, that blanket looks great. Your MIL is lucky to have you. Great job on the cycloptic skull. I think it makes the skull look meaner.

Great knucks (I like the skull that is winking). That blanket must be taking forever to make--I've never knit a blanket. Crocheted them and that was slow enough!
