This is a Christmas Gift for my sisters little boy - just in time to get in the mail for Christmas without having to pay more for postage than I did for the yarn.
Used the Caelum Pattern from Ravelry and plan to make another one for my little guy with the same yarn soon!
I have also finished my resurrected Mondo Cable Cardi and made it into a short sleeved vest that will fit Carson's Grandma perfectly - just working on some seaming and button closure for the top! Pictures to come!
I cast on 2 other projects as well:
#1 - the Boyfriend Hat - from the Hat Fit for a Boyfriend Pattern - here is my project link! So far have been knitting on it last night and will tonight while the Boyfriend is working in the evening. Good thing it is a hat and not a sweater or I am sure he would catch me :)
#2 - Cedum - wanted something quick and comfy. We just had a week of crummy weather not that long ago which made me want to cast on something warm. The pattern used Seed Stitch which in bulky yarn makes for a very "skwoooshy" (in loss of a better word) fabric that will be nice and cozy! The pattern is knitting up quick at 12 sts per inch and I already love it!
Picked up a new "fake" tree at the Depot this weekend - the new condo is of course real tree un-friendly - so I found a cute fake one to do the trick. Gingerbread house preparation with the boys starts tomorrow night - I am preparing for a mess and a candy-high 2 year old!
Here is my decorating assistant that thinks that the plant behind him looks much better with lights!
