quick knits with stolen time

A few things with school and work got cancelled, so the first two weeks of the semester weren’t as busy as I thought, and I suddenly have time on my hands for a few quick knitting projects :D

Mike requested these to wear in his chilly office.

And then I made myself this hat, knitted sideways in garter stitch.

Was being really woolly that day, wearing a woolly hat and a woolly sweater.

I followed this pattern. It was fun to learn short rows! I decreased the number of stitches because I used a much thicker yarn (super bulky) and much larger needles (10 mm) than called for, and I didn’t do the knit TBL for the top and the brim.

Well, whatever got cancelled mostly got pushed to this week, so things will get busier, but hopefully I will still be able to sit down and knit for a while in the evening.

Have a wonderful week, everyone!
