Let it Snow and other happenings

If I didn't make him come in
I think he would sled until his toes fell off.
Couldn't get through a Christmas without an appearance of Simplicity 3042, my old standby. These went to California so they're flannel not fleece. Fleece and LA don't mix. I just used scraps but they came out really cute and festive.

I've been knitting up a storm, another slouchy beret was requested but I made so many last year I'll spare you the pic. I made this caplet loosely based on a free pattern. I used variegated boucle and black red heart.

Love the way this came out. It's very warm and was pretty quick, I used size 15 circular needles and bound off with 17's. Now I know what to do with all that boucle yarn I bought. The red heart along with the boucle worked out great. I received a lot of compliments.

One last Christmas present for my DD, this is McCalls 5981, it's the same pattern I used for my purple "Barney" jacket. I also made myself a jacket out of the same fabric about two years ago. I added belt loops because I learned on mine that a belted jacket without belt loops is annoying.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate.
