I suppose that's also why December seems to start off a bit of a knitting kick in me. I actually managed to bash out a few knitting bits in the run up the the festive season and I've got a lot more ideas running round my head at the moment too. But I thought I'd share them with you what I've done so far.
First up is a hat that I saw in a magazine and fell in love with straight away. It's 'Have a Ball' and was featured in the January 2012 edition of 'Simply Knitting'. Now I'm not a big fan of variegated yarns but I have a few in my stash and this one just spoke to me for this project. I'm also not very good at looking great in hats, most look quite daft on me. I'm certainly not going to give you a picture, so you'll just have to take my word for it! Basically, this project was doomed from the start, but for some reason, that didn't put me off.
It was quite an enjoyable knit and I like the way the striping worked out but when I had stitched the last stitch and sewn in the last thread, I tried in on and........ yep, I hated it!
I decided to donate it to my Little One, who is modelling it here. These infuriating cute children, they look good in anything!
More on my Christmas knitting coming soon...
