What’s on the Needles – December Edition

September, October and November were not without knitting. But they were mostly consumed with one big secret project that is now in it’s recipient’s hands, so I can tell you all about it now.Crocheted Flowers on Baby Blanket

Baby Blanket

Paul’s brother and his wife are expecting their first baby in January. We’re so excited to have our first niece! They are decorating the nursery in gray and pink and chevrons, so naturally I had to hunt down the perfect chevron baby blanket. I liked how crisp the stripes were in this lacy variety. I added some little flowers to the corner for a bit of girly flair. Thank goodness I have crochet mentors at Knit Night! If you want to know the specifics, here’s the Ravelry page.Baby BlanketSo expect lots more baby knitting in the future. 🙂

When I finished the blanket, I decided to finish something up for myself!

Sarah's Fingerless Mitts with Pints OnI knit Paul a pair of these Mittens with Pints On for Christmas last year. I had purchased yarn  to make a fingerless pair for myself and I finished those up when the blanket was finished!
Right now I’m working on this hat and cowl set for myself. I wanted a hat that was a bit large so it doesn’t make my curly hair go flat when I wear it. The hat is done, the cowl is started. I’ll post some pictures once it’s finished.

We’re very much enjoying our first Christmas season in our new home! To celebrate we made custom matching ugly Christmas sweaters!

Happy Holidays!
