Gaptastic, again

gaptastic1

At the beginning of the year I knit up a gaptastic for the shop. I loved it so much, that I decided that I had to knit up another one, for myself. Those mornings standing at the bus stop with the kids in the middle of winter get brutally cold. My thrummed mittens are a staple for standing at the bus stop, along with a trusty hat. Now, I can add this to my wardrobe to keep me warm.

I used up 3 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Solids (color: 640 Fisherman) that was in my stash for a very long time. I do have stuff in my stash that was not purchased at my shop, but acquired before I bought the shop. I used 9mm (US 13) knitting needles. This was a great project to work on while at Sean’s baseball games. I was able to knit & chat with the other baseball moms at the same time. I would definitely knit this project again. It’s a fave of mine now!

Love it! I'll be knitting one for myself before winter hits this year too. I loved the one I did for Dailaesse's teacher this past winter. So cozy!

Love this too! I made one out of some chunky malabrigo I think it was. Wear it CONSTANTLY, and even though it was moss stitch, it was still a fast easy knit. It stretched out a ton though, I think I need to make another!

It looks like it would be super warm.

looks cozy, though I do hope you won"t have to use it for a long time....
