Secret knitting update 

Tonight I finished knitting my secret project! There is a tiny bit of finishing work, but I feel good having the knitting done, and ahead of schedule.  With these secret projects that involve deadlines, I tend to get them done really early so there’s no last-minute panic! I wish I could do the same in other areas of my life. ūü§Ē

Coming along nicely 

Maybe I like costumes a little too much? Two days into Halloween prep and the Wee Boy’s Fourth Doctor outfit is progressing nicely! The coat and vest have been altered/sewn, and the scarf is already over a foot long.

  I need to put buttons on the vest and coat for sure- yesterday the jacket was out for a test run and was flapping annoyingly in the wind. There are distinct advantages to getting an early start, eh?? No last-minute irritating surprises like flapping clothing!  The hat also needs a wind-proof strap, as it flew off the Boy’s head more than once! 

I highly recommend this scarf pattern for a child’s Doctor scarf- it’s quick and easy, and the stripes are fun! And goodness, I haven’t made a garter stitch scarf since I started knitting over 10 years ago! ūüėč

Little by little

My secret knitting project is coming along nicely, but the slippery yarn plus size four needles have been bothering my hands, so I can only do a little each day. 

I’ve resurrected my mystery KAL hat, and have decided to whom I’ll gift it- I’ll tell you later, but I think it’s a super cool choice. 

I’m about to start the crown, thank goodness! With a recipient in mind, I hope to finish it up soon! Only 21 rows to go.


Tonight at knit night I started and finished a tiny Gryffindor scarf bookmark- a birthday gift for a fellow Harry Potter fan.  I did the fringe when I got home.

The pattern is from Charmed Knits, Projects for Fans of Harry Potter. I used DK weight yarn, so it’s a bit thicker than I’d like, but I didn’t want to but yarn for such a small project so I made do with stash yarn (mystery red cotton, yellow Silky Wool).  I think the recipient will be pleased!
