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:

Fudge

 
Fourth graders here are studying the regions of the United States.  One thing they are doing is sending out a bear to travel the country collecting interesting information about where they visit. 
 
Above you will see Fudgie.  He will be greatly missed while on his travels, but he is decked out is his Red Sox gear, so that is a consolation.
 
You know I was furiously binding off those pants moments before rushing to the PO to get stamps for his box/home before they closed. As a result they aren't as long as I would have liked--but he does have butt-shaping, and a hole for his tail and holes for ears.  Luckily he has no bones and does not complain, so he is easy to squeeze into his outfit.
 
Bon Voyage Fudge--looking forward to seeing you in the spring.
