Hats, slippers, slipper socks, Christmas socks, mittens, pillows, washcloths, towels, soap pouches, ornaments, headbands, shawls, shrugs...http://www.knitlist.com/patterns.htm

The only additional skill needed to make any of these is the ability to read a pattern. Then you can make anything! xxx

My mother knits the most adorable "Snowman Family," and they make such a GREAT gift! When my oldest daughter (25 now) was in college a few years ago, she called Nana on the phone to ask her if she would make her her own snowman family. Since she was at Florida State, my mom did the set in the school colors. So cute!

I just ran to my pattern stash and there it was! I'm going to put it into a PDF so everyone can enjoy it. It'll make a great KAL, so maybe I'll post it there.

There are three in the family, mom dad and baby. They're made with a ribbed "tube" and have a small hat and scarf.

Can't wait for you to see them!

My daughter is making handbags for her grandmothers. They are felted so they hide a lot "design modifications" (flaws). I am doing some clogs and shawls and some bags. I have made some easy slippers too.

I've been waiting for my DD to send me a picture to go with the pattern but, since she's a bit tardy, I'll go ahead and post the pattern anyway. Hopefully, you can get the gist of it. I'll include the photo as soon as Beth sends it out! Give me a second to put it on my website! Be right back....................

OK friends, the pattern is here. My DD is going to send the photo soon and, as soon as she does, I will post it here and the website.

Please include finished pictures to include on the website.

Anyone want to start a thread in the KAL section? I'll join you there. I mean, gosh, I've already got a bazillion WIP's. I might as well add one more......................

Have fun, and thanks for your interest. My mom is so excited that you all want to make these. These have become such a tradition in our family. Now they'll become one in yours!
