End of the Year

Christmas knitting: the ones I managed to photograph before I gave them away, anyway. I made my MIL a neckwarmer and wristwarmers in a beautiful handspun aran yarn she picked at the Local Yarn Store that did not get photographed, but trust me, they were awesome! Here are the wristwarmers I made for my sister to go with a thrifted coat that I bought at the Goodwill. I really wanted that coat. I loved it. Unfortunately, it was a couple of sizes too small, (Not that I didn't manage to button it over the girls and wear it a few times) and a petite (I just said that it had three quarter sleeves! Pathetic, I know). Anyway, I knew, I just knew it would fit my fabulous little sister perfectly. And it did. I'm really, really glad for her. And really, really sad for me. Aaaanyway, her wristwarmers:

Fetching, no? Well that just happens to be the name of the pattern!

Now, this.... THIS makes me super, duper happy! I made my mini me a sweater a la Elizabeth Zimmerman percentage system I've mentioned before. This is it, and I'm so happy with it. It fits her nicely with lots of room to grow and goes with most of her current wardrobe, which is largely shades of pink and purple.

Here's a close up of the yoke, which turned out beautifully, I thought.


  1. Very Very Beautiful! The Lord has truly blessed you with these giftings! Katie made me the most beautiful pillowcases for Christmas! I will have to post a photo on facebook. She has started crochet and for Christmas, her teacher gave her a box full of supplies to start learning cross-stitch. Blessings!

  2. I love seeing little girls getting confidence to create with skill. It's such a feminine trait to make things beautiful.

  3. What a beautiful jumper I love the colours and the work in that yoke
