Neoma Jane's little sister will be here anyday and I finished gifts in the nick of time. Just need to wrap everything tonight and tomorrow they go over the mountains (and through the woods...hehe) to mama. I blogged about the purple blanket here and the sweater here. The pink blanket just finished drying this morning from it's blocking bath ( my ravelry notes can be found here ) :
There's nothing quite as blissful as knitting things for little ones and I feel so lucky to have two goddaughters to make things for. And three lovely nieces who appreciate hand knit things as well. Last year I made them all mittens for Christmas and you could tell they really loved them.
I finally made myself a matching pair (I've been busy!) :
They're Olla Mittens (free on knitty.com) or you can follow the link in my ravelry notes here. I really love this pattern and the embroidery is super easy since Anna has you knit landmarks for the stitching as well as giving a really great diagram in the pattern (much like a kids 'dot to dot' puzzle ~ just follow the numbers). Every girl should have a pair of these.
Go ahead, make yourself some. You'll love them!
Happy Sunday, everybody!
