A bunch of stuff to show this week again! Probably too much!
Let's start with the most exciting thing, my order from Knit Picks arrived, my first personally placed order! I got yarn for Christmas gifts, some needles to try (I'm in love with them!), a kit, some yarn to try some tiny toys and a few other things!
Here it is unpacked. Let me know if you are interested in the details of what everything is and I'll stick it in the comments! And this order may or may not be on top of a good sale at Joann's and a good sale tomorrow at Michael's...
Over the weekend I worked a few rows on my neglected ripple, so it gets to be the background this week!
Here is the hat I brought to Knitting class last Wednesday (tonight is my last class) it was going along well and then I realized after the brim I was doing the wrong pattern, I was reading it as one sequence for rows 1 and 3 and another for 2 and 4 but it's actually 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 so I think I'm doing the seed stitch instead of the moss stitch. :(
Here are the two scarves that were in progress last week, and they are now done!
I've been seeing these Newfoundland Mittens around a lot lately and after reading the pattern I realized they weren't too hard so I started my own pair, I think I'll be bringing these to my final knitting class tonight.

When my Knit Picks order arrived I was really excited to try my new needles (I got a try-it set which has 1 pair of interchangeable in their 3 styles) and also a few other sizes for my Christmas projects. I really want to get a full set of their needles now but don't know which to get! I've usually stayed away from wood needles because they are too grippy for me but these I really like!
This is a scarf for either my dad or grandpa, I got 2 browns so we'll see how it ends up! I really like this pattern because it's reversible!
Comfy Bulky Fedora
My mom really liked the fingerless gloves I had made last week so I'm making her a pair too!
Comfy Worsted Jalapeno
And finally, last week I found out that my favorite local yarn store was having a beginners sock class starting this week, and I signed up! My first class was yesterday and there are 2 more sessions. We are making socks from worsted weight and I guess they will be considered more slipper socks, but apparently I will be able to apply the same rules to sock weight yarn so I'm really excited to learn! I'm eying some of this yarn!
For next week I'm just making the tube of the sock that goes to your ankle. I've decided I'm not really fond of the yarn I picked, it's not soft enough for my hands but oh well. I'm just learning! Also, I'm pretty much the slowest knitter in my class and also the youngest haha!
