Here’s some evidence of the knitting frenzy of the last week or two: The hat, vest, and mitten (no, it’s not an oven mitt) were all completed over the weekend.

As I was working on the vest, I was worried it would be too big, or look like it came from a circus; I was worried that after all that time and effort it wouldn’t turn out. And I had to think, “This must be what parents feel like about their children.”
