One Down Many More To Go

This is the first Christmas robe, luckily I only have to make one more the other boys requested the 1 hr. pj's--God Bless em'. The pattern is my old standby Butterick 3042, the pj bottoms are McCalls 9638, this is the Wal-Mart fleece and I'm not to impressed with it, I prefer Hancock's.

The bottom fabric is left over from previous years, it's a good match.

This is my most recent project, a Christmas scarf, simple garner stitch the yarn on the bottom is called Whirligig it was on sale at Hobby Lobby, I plan to make a matching hat.

I "finished" the brown sweater, I'm going to frog the bottom because it's not long enough, argh. I wish the color looked like it does in this picture but it's kinda of dull, I'm considering dyeing it once I'm really finished, I ran out of the original yarn and the dye lots are a little off, no one can tell but me but that's enough reason to dye it.

Oh well, gotta run trying to get the Christmas tree up, I think this is going to be one of those years where I'm racing against the clock up until Christmas Eve, when will I learn.

The robe looks great and yes you have been busy... that's a great idea dyeing a project when the color is off... need to remember that.
