Little hats

These are the cute little hats I gave Stacy at her baby shower.  Not much time to expand upon it right now, but pictures are fun anyway.

Christmas Cheer

After getting past my cousin's wife's baby shower this past weekend, I am finally focusing on Christmas. Its my first Christmas in my new house, so monday night I started a pretty white cabled stocking and last night I almost finished it, so I am hoping tonight to get the last of it done and start a second one. I need at least three: me, Riley and Ben. I haven't decided which one is who's yet, but I was originally thinking the white one would be mine. I like white christmas stockings. But we'll see how they all come out. Riley doesn't really care what his looks like, as long as it ends up filled with chew toys.

Depending on how quickly I'm able to whip out these stockings, I may also make one to donate to a charity silent auction that is the weekend before Thanksgiving. Maybe.

All Christmas presents this year have to be small. Not a ton of knitting time left. Lots of hats and things. I think I will have to wait until next year to make myself a tree skirt, there just isn't time.

There is a Talia Vest knit-along starting in the Loops ravelry group that I would really love to join in, if I wasn't so far behind. If only it was starting in January. Oh well, hopefully I'll get around to that at some point. I have 4 lovely skeins of blue and brown malabrigo that might be just lovely for that. I also have a solid navy in another yarn that might be good. Maybe I'll have to swatch and see that looks better in the pattern once I get that far.

Well, I guess I should get moving so I can go home and knit, knit, knit!
