Phew, it’s hard keeping knitting secrets, but finally I can share the secret project I’ve been working on. It was for my knitting group’s birthday swap, but my swappee was ill last week and missed knit night. Tonight I was able to present her with….
A jellyfish hat!! This was a fun knit.
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jellyfish-in-the-waves-beanie The jellyfish is lightly stuffed, so it puffs out a little. The farthest right tentacle dangles a little. I love it! I think my recipient does, too.
I finished my latest leethalknits KAL hat!
I started the next hat KAL on Tuesday, but haven’t made much progress due to my wrist needing rest, and the pattern puts some pressure on it. So it can progress slowly but surely.
And the fourth doctor’s scarf is coming along nicely.
It should be done in a few days, with plenty of time to spare!

My birthday was about two weeks ago, but I couldn’t make it to knit night, so tonight I was on the receiving end of the secret birthday exchange!
I can’t tell you how pleased I am with what my friend knit for me, but these photos come close!
Tardis hat! Dalek mitts!! I love them!!!!!
For fun, I decided to gather all my swap gifts from the years that I’ve been participating- I’ve gotten some really lovely things, and I love thinking hog my knitting friends every time I use them. ❤️
Also, my friends can tell that I like blue, eh?
Lately I’ve been doing well at finishing projects! My secret project a few days ago, a bear last night, and a hat today!
I had a little knitting time and realized I was only 13 rows from finishing, so decided to power through!
By 9:30pm I was done.
Neither photo does the yarn justice. It’s very teal- not green, N boy blue, but teal. Also, done. I’m very happy that it’s done. Now I think I only have one WIP left!!?
The Wee Boy’s Dr Who scarf is over halfway done, yay!
My expert (🙄) tips:
1. Attach a tiny pair of scissors, if you have one, to the knitting, for frequent cutting of yarns.
2. Weave those ends in often, to save yourself a big job at the end! I’ve been weaving them in every four color changes or so.
