NaBloPoMo Day 1: Apparently, I’m a giver

It’s National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo for short) and I will be posting every day, or trying to do so. As Phoebe so aptly put it, my Novembers are well documented.

We’ll start, as I think we usually do, with a finished object round up.

There were teacher gifts…


French Press Cozy

A gift for my mother-in-law

finished magrathea

A bunny for a new baby

more bunnies are better

Chemo caps (I only knit the top one and a couple others, a lot of those were knit by friends of mine. Thanks, friends!) donated, again, to The Breast Cancer Connection in Palo Alto.

Chemo Caps

A mouse for my son’s friend

Mouse for W

A scarf in UNR colors for a friend whose oldest son is going there

Husky Stripes

And, finally, a couple of things for me…

A Lintilla scarf

Posh Lintilla

And a Dark Side cowl.

ArtFibers Brogue Cowl

Wow, seven out of the last nine projects here were gifts. I think the last two I finished before this were also gifts. I am either selfless or stupid or overrun with knitting. Anything is possible.

I am not making any promises for this year’s NaBloPoMo. Last year I wanted to post a picture every day but I started Project 365 this year and bailed on that, so no promises from me!

Here’s to a postastic November! Hopefully we won’t have to talk about dryer lint at all this year. Again, no promises.

    Love your knitting projects. I think the mouse is my favorite 🙂

      I haven’t updated since May so it took me a while. 🙂

      I love that blanket bunny and knit one anytime there is a baby to knit for.

        Well, thank you! 🙂

    Hey, one month out of twelve ain’t bad! Only well, OK, it’s bad. But still! Always twirling toward freedom!

    First time visiting! Mayumi sent me here, saying how much she enjoys your blog. I am sooo not a knitter, but I would love to learn. I definitely love the little mouse and the way he peeks up. 🙂

      Thanks! Learning to knit is easy although that mouse is crochet which is even easier than knitting, I think. 🙂

    Wow, lots of knitting! I ❤ the Lintilla scarf… headed to ravelry and possible startitis attack.

      I have her ebook and have knit three of the four. Ironically, Hitchhiker is the only one I haven’t knit yet. Maybe that should be next. 😉

      Oh, I lie, I started Trillian but pulled it out and knit Magrathea instead. I have two to go.
