Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

This isn't really Christmas Knitting. I don't pile that on my back. My daughter asked for one of these, and like potato chips we couldn't stop.
Calorimetry so simple that it confuses us. I did the first one the solid blue with the pattern cast on number 120. It is a bit long, but I like the width. My daughter fell for the Paton's SWS and she picked out two colors she liked. This is really a fast knit. And if your tolerance for ribbing is greater then mine, enjoyable. But after all the ribbing on the Cabled Hoodie and a bunch of these I am off ribbing for awhile. We got the buttons at the house of high class, Wal-Marts. The little headband does keep the ears warm and is fairly non invasive to hair dos. I have very long hair so it isn't a problem. But dd has short hair and she likes wearing them.The two SWS are made using 104 stitches, which seems to fit her larger head better.

Dawn got a high powered camera for Christmas. Her other camera was stolen while she was in Alaska. So she took the pictures

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas

Love the headbands. I need to make a few of those myself. Another few projects to add to my list.

Hope you and your family have a safe and wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. Happy Knitting 2008!

LOL about the potato chips. I really like those in SWS. I keep hearing great things about SWS, I need to pick some up someday.

Ribbing is like seed stitch. Very nice, but also tedious to work.

Hope you're having a wonderful Christmas!

Those are just darling but how do you wear them? OK I"m an idiot today.

Libby the button is is under your hair at the back. I saw someone on Ravelry had it buttoned at the top of their head.
Thank you ladies. Just remember the short row holes are the button holes. So don't be and idiot like me and close the holes up. duh

Hey--- thanks for stopping by the blog!

And, yes my Mom did have surgery but not the GOOD kind I don't think. Assuming any of it is good anyway.

LOVE the cals. I can never pronounce them! :) Very cute!
