Odessa

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 10:19 pm

Pizza for dinner and Bunny bathed and to bed without a fuss. Time to avoid correcting papers for a little while and post about some knitting.

First, and actual finished object (modeled here by one of my students who has really good hair!). I made my first (and certainly not my last) Odessa. I made it as a chemo cap for Cheryl, a colleague fighting lymphoma. I don’t know Cheryl well, but I know that in the few times she taught Bunny before she got sick, she turned him from just a curious kid into a budding scientist. I will never forget his explanation to my father about how roots hold up trees, it was Cheryl’s words coming through him… Full details on my FO page for it.

In other knitting news I have been working hard on Bunny’s Avery and trying not to get distracted by other projects that don’t involve endless rows of stockinette on size three needles. I have a new goal for the sweater, I want him to be able to wear it for the Christmas pageant. Let’s hope this one goes better than all the other goals I set for this project!

I have a full line-up waiting in the wings

  • Christmas stocking for Bunny
  • Hat for mom
  • Buzzy baby set
  • something for me!
