More hats

A few more hats to start the year. A baby hat for a friend and another man hat, this one for my husband.
I've been dreaming of starting my Tracery vest.

BIL hat

First completed project of the year. A hat for my BIL to match his son's hat. Finished whilst sitting atop the bleachers at an elementary basketball tournament. Now drying from its bath and soon to ship off.

Leg warmers complete

And I did finish those leg warmers in time. Here they are modeled on my son. But don't let him know I told you that. He said they did feel nice but the colors didn't do it for him.

You can see the one mistake I made. A set of decreases on the wrong side. But I decided my niece would never notice. So I left it as is.

Boy man hat

And here I am wearing a hat I made for my nephew. He loved it so much he said he would never take it off. And he was true to his word, at least for the two days I saw him, except when his parents made him take it off for meals.

Boot cuffs

A gift for my sister. I improvised these boot cuffs using a pattern from one of the new harmony guide books (gotta say not lovin' the new harmony guides). But I like the way the cuffs turned out.

Christmas gifts

Not a lot of knitting this Christmas. One leg warmer down one to go. Then we'll see about other stuff.

Wig

Ack--thought I'd get a post in before the year is over--sad I know. 

I will do a round up of the few projects I have worked on this year.  But for now I was thinking of my wig. 

Six years ago (today) I posted a pattern for a wig.  Though it hasn't been made all that many times (judging from what is posted on Ravelry) I just love the way it has been used. 

You can see some of my wigs, made by others, at the link below:
