FOs for Christmas
I'll start by saying, I hope everybody here had a lovely Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate).

After feverishly finishing my Christmas knitting (all of which DID NOT get done ) I have to say, Shew! hehe. I finished these a few days ago, but I haven't had time to post until tonight after everybody has returned to their respective homes.

The first project is an afghan I made for my sister. (She LOVED it!) The pattern is from a Leasure Arts booklet and it's called 'Exquisite' and I used Caron Simply Soft in Autumn Red. I was skeptical as I was knitting but I think it turned out really nicely.

The second project is Ron's Animal Crackers Hat from Charmed Knits, which I made for my nephew. He's 4, and I made the adult size and it just fit him, so I guess maybe I should check my tension. hehe. The pattern called for Rowan Big Wool, so I splurged and actually used that. I have so much left over, I think I need to make myself one using the pink as the MC, and maybe with bigger needles. hehe.

Anyhoo, sorry for the long post. Here are the pics. Blessings to everybody, and Happy New Year!

I made that same blanket in Bulky Wool - talk about warm - it is a beautiful pattern! I really enjoyed doing it - it was interesting to do. It was a present so I want to do another one for me.

I enjoyed doing this one, too. I'd also like to make one for myself at some point in a lighter color, but not right now. I need a break from the afghans for awhile. I never thought about using bulky yarn - did you still use 2 strands or just one. This was the first time I've used the Simply Soft and I really enjoyed it....the finished afghan is so warm and soft. I didn't want to give it away.
