Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Since tomorrow is Christmas, I figured I could finally show what I have been working on. This is the winter set I made for my daughter. It includes a cable hat, matching handbag, multi-colored scarf and little slippers. I love how it came out and I had to design the bag and scarf to match the hat, so I think it came out pretty good for no pattern! :)

These are regular watch-cap hats. The 2 navy blue ones are for son and s-i-l. The black one is for hubby. I love the band around the bottom of the hat so there is no-rollup. I also changed the hat to a small decrease to make the crown rounder instead of "puckery". The decrease I used made an actual crown to the hat.

The gray hat is for my brother. It's thick and very warm, so when he is out working in the shop, his head should stay warm! I hope he wears it, and that is an "iffy" thing, but it made me feel good to make him something that hopefully he will like.

Well, that's my Christmas knitting. Can't say I am too happy that's all I got done, I still have a sister that I didn't finish her felted bag. Figured I would wrap up the yarn and the pattern and tell her I owed her one! I think she will wait, if now, well then........

Merry Christmas All! I hope you have a very happy one!

They all look great! I knew there was no way I was going to finish knitting Christmas gifts so I didn't commit this year....maybe next year.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
