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.

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:
