Here are a few highlights from the past 6 weeks.
All the boys were home on the same weekend so that we could pick out a tree as a family. I think it's been 5 years since the last time that happened!
The following weekend we had a fun day celebrating with my side of the family. Our family continues to grow with the addition of 2 baby girls in 2012! It was really fun having my niece Morgan and great-niece Aubree even though they were too young to understand what was going on. We ahd extra fun for them.
Jesse's Christmas Hat that I knit for Tom. He got a new winter jacket this year so I made him a hat to go with it. I used Lamb's Pride Worsted.
Fake Isle Hat. I used Noro Kureyon and Cascade 220. I'm not a fan of Noro yarns generally, but the concept of this hat is pretty clever and I couldn't resist! I'll probably make this hat again, but I will use some Lamb's Pride for the solid contrast. The Cascade 220 was a little too thin and made it a little challenging for me to properly tension the stranding.
Moody's Stockings for Danielle, who is Matthew's girlfriend. She is a big fan of the Harry Potter books and movies, so she appreciated the tie-in. I used Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga in Acmon Blue for these.
Alpine Lake in the infinity size for Emma, who is Chandler's girlfriend. I used Lamb's Pride Bulky for this. It came out great and Emma LOVES it :-) The Lamb's Pride may not have been the best substitution as I ended up using a LOT more yardage than the pattern called for, but the end result was beautiful.
I hope you are all well and had a wonderful holiday season too!
