Holiday Knitting Update

Yes, I know that it is waaaaay past time for a holiday knitting update, but since I didn't post at all in December or January, I feel that this post is justified.  So here it goes:

  • Snowflake Hat
  • Snowman Hat
  • Cars Hat (2)
  • Rosebud Hat
  • Fish Hat (3?)
  • Mad Bomber Hat
  • Socks for Layne
  • Stockings (2)
  • Fetching Mitts in purple
  • Gold Scarf for Mom
Not bad, actually, all things considered. 

The Gold Scarf for Mom was supposed to be a gift for last year, but didn't make it.  Brett ate part of the scarf and one of the needles.  Luckily, he only ate the yarn that was near the needle, so I only has to frog about four inches to get to some useable stitches.  However, he completely demolished the needle and I wasn't able to find another set like it.  I ended up purchasing a circular Addi Lace in the correct size, but this isn't working out so well.  While the tips of the needles are pointy, they are not quite as pointy as the now-demolished set.  Additionally, the Addis are gold.  The yarn is gold.  They are near to the exact same color.  This makes it very difficult to knit in light that is not full-on daylight.  I'm sure I'll figure it out.  I *do* have another year.  Almost.

And to finish, a cute picture of the fluffy dogs:
