I've been working on this cap for what seems like forever. I've screwed up, ripped back and screwed up again many times. I found an error in the pattern and the designer fixed it and I STILL messed up.

At least this time, I have a lifeline in so I didn't have to rip back to the beginning. But damn, it's frustrating. I decided to put it down for a bit and start on Christmas presents for the kids in my family (Brianna, my friends daughter; Cassie, Jared and Noah, my "grandkids".)

I'm making this for Brianna. She loves her American Girl doll, so having matching sweaters will be cute. I don't know if I'll be able to finish the child sweater in time, though, since the pattern is more advanced than I'm used to. I've just gotten to the part where I have to knit from two skeins at a time on the doll sweater, and it's a bit intimidating. Plus, it's thin yarn, so the bigger sweater will take a long time.

For Cassie, I have some of that crazy, fluffy fun yarn to make a scarf. That I can bang out in less than a day. Jared is getting a bag to tote his toys around in. I'm not sure about Noah, since he's just a baby...maybe I'll attempt my first toy. Or some kitschy Xmas thing.

When did knitting become my life? LOL
