W is for Winter Wonderland

Well maybe not a wonderland but the view from my back door this morning. The second snow of the year, roads are closed, traffic is a mess, even the Lincoln Tunnel is closed. I'll be a bit late for work. It's supposed to end soon.

Happy New Year to all my on-line friends, stay safe tonight!

What did you make?

I made a hat for Reese from one of my first handspun yarns. It was sort of a combination of this one and this one.

And then here's my pattern for Evan's mittens.

Three hats for Olivia, made to her specifications. A plain black hat to go with her black plaid coat.

A brown and tan striped hat to go with her brown coat.

And a sort of pink one to go with them both.

I picked the owls.

And since Evan wanted the kind of hat to wear on his head, I got to be a bit creative so I made this one.

My Grand-dog Bentley really didn't care what kind of sweater he got but BDE requested red. I think he looks quite handsome in it.

Finally there were the 26 no 27 Christmas ornaments from this post. One rolled under the tv stand and I thought I had miscounted so I made another. Turns out I did need it after all.

Merry Christmas!

My SIL Mimi and I have been very busy on a project and I've neglected my poor little blog. But I've been knitting away and I have so much to show you and tell you. But now we're pooped, the presents are all wrapped, the cooking is done, the house is pretty clean and we're going to bed. Merry Christmas to you all!
