Post Christmas Summary

I hope everyone had a good holiday season. Mine seemed too short. And since I now sit in front of a computer every day for work, I didn't feel like looking at one over the holidays. I did knit but I didn't even get pics of everything I did. I was in a a "get 'er out" kind of mood. I did get a few pics.
I did a fingerless glove, snood and leg warmer set for my niece.

I knit another snood and fingerless gloves for my sister-in-law. Thing about the fingerless gloves.. they can be used on really cold days over you gloves or mittens to give you an extra layer of warmth. It's -22 Celsius here today with the wind chill. I wore my fingerless gloves over my mittens and I was toasty!
I also knit my great aunt another pair of cable booties because rumor has it the last pair I knit for her are almost worn out. It's a light colour for a slipper type sock but it was all I had on hand, the colour is pretty and I know they are nice and warm with this yarn (knitpicks wool of the Andes)
I also knit my mom a wrap, my step brother felted slipper socks and his wife a snood. I think that's it. It was a pretty short list this year. Next year I'm trying to convince everyone to take the money you spend on gifts for others and buy things for yourself that you really want. I am also starting to try and stock pile some FO items so I can be ready but we'll see how that works out.
I was determined I would knit something for myself over the holidays. I had this baby llama wool that was soooo soft. I don't think I'm allergic to llama so I knit myself a hat. I had a bit leftover so I made a headband too.
The pattern is out of a new book I got for Christmas, One Skein Wonders. I love books like this because how often to you pick up a skein or two of some yarn you really love without a project in mind? I do it all the time.

I have some great things on the go so hopefully I'll get a little more diligent about taking pics and sharing. So stay tuned!
