I wanted to show off the things I made my kids for Christmas. I started in December and thankfully I didn't have to make the cowl or else I wouldn't have been able to finish. In fact, I finished up the last hat on Christmas Eve.
I made the Mitten Top Toque for my oldest daughter, who is 11. I let her pick out the yarn, but she didn't know the exact pattern. I think it knitted up nicely!
Here is the front view of the hat. I used Deborah Norvile's Everyday Soft worsted in Parfait. The pattern can be found on Ravelry. I still have a skein and a half left. She wants matching fingerless mittens.
This is the Bandana Cowl which I made for my 8 yr old daughter. Her favorite color is blue, and I knew she'd like the shape of this. I liked making it, it was easy and it knit up pretty quickly. I used Wool Ease for this one.
I made three Toboggan Noggins for my boys. I only got one photo, but you get the idea. I used Wool Ease and Vanna's Choice for them. I added tassels and I think I modified the amount I cast on, but I don't remember. It's all a haze to me now. And I guess I'm not too attached because I'm pretty sure they will lose them in the near future. That's the way boys are!
So I had a busy December with lots of projects OTN. I keep wanting to cast on for other projects, but I really need to finish up the ones I already have. I think 2012 is going to be a productive year for me!
