The Uzbek project
















So, after making Grace's hat, mittens and scarf set, I thought, "Wouldn't it be nice to make a set for each of the four little Uzbeki girls from the immigrant/refugee family we've been working with the past six months?" Great idea, but a little overly ambitious. I spent most of my Christmas vacation knitting little mittens, hats, and scarves in four shades of pink and with various fun yarn accents (Lion Brand Fun Fur and Fancy Fur) for Ruiza, Farida, Albina and Songul. I had hoped to do one for the Nasiba (the mom) and grandma, too, but ended up just giving them scarves. Finally, I knit a goofy hat for Sarvar (the dad). Remind me to start in summer next time I plan to do this much Christmas knitting!
