cowls and slippers and hats – oh my!

39 days and counting. 
Feeling good about this years holiday gift knits. Sure, there’s still plenty of time for things to go awry. But I’ve got a plan, and gosh darn it, I’m sticking to it. K.I.S.S. dudes — Keep. It. Simple. Stupid. Surely this approach will garner enough finished objects to spread around the handmade love this Christmas.
Gonna do lots of little things – cowls and slippers and hats (oh my!). Maybe a couple more scarf/neck wraps. If there’s time, perhaps a pair of socks. All in all I’d like to make about 8 to 10 items. As of today, I’ve got 2 cowls done and one hat on the needles.cowls a-plenty
(L to R): Birthday Cowl, Crofter’s Cowl
 
Patterns on the knit list include:
Odessa (hat, currently in progress) to be paired with finished Birthday Cowl
Foliage (hat) to be paired with finished Crofter’s Cowl
Aran Isle Slippers (slippers, duh!) for da boys
Star Crossed Slouchy Beret (hat)
Vegas Sands (cowl)
And finished, but not part of the holiday knit-a-thon, is loverboy’s kewl scarf. Despite a dye lot mis-match (gah!) it looks great. Still working on getting a pic of the scarf on loverboy.sunray in the sun's rays
Psst! Hey Happy Butterfly – notice anything in the background?
We need to meet up soon :)
