Dec. projects update

Here are the socks I am working on with that gorgeous yarn!

Aren't these bootie slippers so adorable??? I will add wood buttons to the side.
They are called "Little Red Riding Slippers", even the name is cute.
This is not a difficult pattern, but it is not a beginner pattern either.
You can get it from The drops website - HERE
or from Ravelry - HERE

And I am making this hat for a friend of mine. It is knitting up so nice! I just love working with this yarn! Hmmm I don't know why these turned out orangy, it is a dark red. When it is finished I will try harder to get the true color.

This is one of the best patterns I have used for a hat!!! It is knitting up so nice!
If you have never done cables before and have always wanted to try, this is a great pattern to start with! It is a fairly simple straight forward pattern. And for those of you who are like me - it is pretty easy to alter! You can add or take away because there is a large section with just St. stitch knitting.
This is definitely the kind of pattern you would use over and over.

Get the pattern from Ravelry - HERE
or the Drops website - HERE

New projects for Dec.

So this is what's happening in my little knitting corner of the world -

I am almost done with this cowl "Leadville Cowl" by Annie Watts from Interweave Knits.

And started a simple pair of ribbed socks. If this yarn looks soft and fluffy... it is! Its Acrylic and Mohair. It is just about the softest yarn I have used. I am hoping it makes real nice socks because I just ordered more of it from Smileys Yarns for $1.99 a skein - HERE
The only problem with Smiley's is that your order needs to over $50. so you can't just order one more skein. I usually go in together with my mom.

"Woodcutter Hat" by Interweave Knits

 I ALWAYS buy this magazine, I love it. Every month there are several patterns I love.
I fell in love with this simple hat and decided to make it for myself. It is a great pattern! 5 stars!!!!!
It is very easy to follow and turns out beautiful! It took me about a week to make (I wasn't working on it all the time).

I think this is a hat I will make over and over!

Fun Friday! Thanksgiving edition

Welcome to another Thanksgiving edition of Fun Friday!

I don't know which is harder - Knitting a pie or actually making one!
I do make pie but is not my favorite thing to do.

Aren't these so cute?
