Mery, Merry

Well, I have finally finished my holiday knitting!!! **~~Yay~~**!! Please pardon the the pictures. Today were are having a few "unexpected" squalls so it's dark and randomly snowy. According to the weathermen it was supposed to be sunny! Yah right.

So without further ado.......

Pattern: Classic WWII Watch Cap (rav link)
Yarn: Vanna's Choice in Cranberry
Needles: Size 7 circular and DPN
This was a fast easy knit. I am very pleased with how it turned out.
It is for my father who is a WWII vet so I thought it was appropriate!

Pattern: Thermis by Kris Knits (rav link)
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver in Fall
Needles: Size 6 circular
This is hand's down my favorite cowl pattern. And yes, I really used crunchy acrylic
because the person who is receiving it loves the stuff. Now I need to make one in soft
wool for me!!!

And finally my favorite gift of the season!!!
Pattern: Confection Cowl by Kirsten Kapur (rav link)
Yarn: Gaslight Dyeworks DK in Victoria Falls
Needles: Size 6 circular
I love this pattern and the yarn. Gaslight Dyeworks is so soft and lush. It is beautiful dyed and the skeins are one of a kind....like the recipient!! I even found beads in my stash that matched perfectly so I made earrings as well!

So much prettier in person!

Now I can start some new projects!! I have not made a Thermis for myself yet..... and I have NO hats! Ok, I have ONE hat which I made last year. I think it is time I made a few, I think I am going to need them! And The girls need sweaters! :)

Have a wonderful Holiday whatever you celebrate! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah (even though it is over), Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Boxing Day and have a wonderful Festivus (that's for you Donna!!!)
