|I couldn't share peaks of what I was knitting for Christmas presents before Christmas.|
|The pictures would have given it away way too easily.|
|BUT Now that we're past Christmas I can share with no worries.|
I knit all sorts of Mittens for the Nephews.
In mix-and-match Fair Isle(ish) patterns.
|Sets of three, with a "Universal thumb" that means the mitten can be worn on either hand.|
|And the third mitten means there's a spare if they lose one. |
Which little ones will do.
|I did a pair for their Dad too -- but he only gets two.|
I think he's less likely to lose one. (Watch him be the first!)
|And a Hat for my Sister.|
This is the Baa-ble hat pattern from Shetland Week, but done in Lion Brand Wool-Ease.
I'm calling it "Wash-a-baa-ble" :)
|Of course, then there had to be sheepie mittens too.|
|Like the sheepies on mommy's hat.|
|Or not, maybe just sheep. Crazy-Googley-Eyed Sheep Mittens.*|
(Which are probably being played with like hand puppets right now.)
