Got a lot of ground to cover since my I stopped blogging regularly. This post will focus on the Christmas knitting.....
I was making hats for people, using a number of patterns that I got from Ravelry.
Little Things designed by the talented Veera Valimaki (who also designed the lovely Gathering Stripes) made using luxury 4-ply from Shilasdair in Skye.
Then I made a few hats for my friends kids....from Maria Carlander's Little Scallop hat - oh and I had fun making pompoms!
And for myself, a Cliff Hat knitted with Jamiesons' yarn from Shetland.
My cousins were visiting from Auckland, New Zealand for Christmas, with their little boy Dan. When he was born I knitted him a Milo which (for age 18 months) which he was still wearing when he came to Scotland this time, aged about 28 months....it was getting a little neat and his mum was sad that it was getting too small, so between the 18th and 24th of December I rustled up another one - made with Rowan Tweed.
All knitted out!
