Christmas is Coming

If there seems to be a lack of 'new' images coming on the blog posts, 
just understand that Christmas is coming
and if I show pictures of a current project, 
the Christmas recipient will know what's going on!. 
I could ask you what YOU"RE making for Christmas, 
but then we're back in the same predicament.

Wrist Warmers

Okay, get out some yarn and cast on for Wrist Warmers!
I think I casted on about 48 stitches, worked in a 2 x 2 rib for about 10 inches.  That's 2 knit and 2 purl, worked in the round, on double pointed needles.  Make them as long as you wish, but just make some!  They are so handy for draft-free computer work.!

Emmett's Fall Sweater

Our little buddy, Emmett, recently had his first birthday and received a knitted sweater from his
'Uncle Nate and Aunt Heidi".  Here he is after church, ready for a nap, but also enjoying his Zipper Critter!  I keep the critter in my purse, so when he sees us behind him  in church, he wants to come over the pew and sit with us.  Well, that's the plan anyway.

 This sweater is the famous Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Sweater Pattern.  I added a garter stitch collar of about ten rows and also ribbed stitched cuffs.  They really make the sweater last longer as the baby grows a bit. 

This sweater was made for DaMarion, another little one year old.  He's a little bigger, so I hope it fits for a little while!.
