WIP Hallett's Ledge Sweater

After finishing up the Cider Mills sweater I really felt like doing another. I had bought yarn and the pattern for this one. This is a Twist Collective pattern and a bit complicated reading - but so far it is going okay. Also the pattern calls for Rowan tweed but I decided to use a silk base. I think it might give it a dresser look.

FO Vivienne

Project Details:
Started on December 14 and finished on December 18. I used an interesting blend of cotton/milk (Ella Rae Milky Soft).  The button is on the back side and is a little monster.  I'm not sure I would say that the pattern was worth the $4 - but we will have to see once Zooey starts wearing it.

FO Felicity

Project Details:
I used delicious hedgehog fiber. Singles that are silk /merino. Only around 200 yards for this lovely hat. I cast on December 13 and finished on December 14. Super fast. I did modify the pattern by casting on 84 sts.

FO Gnome Hat

Project Details:
I used a nice thick yarn - cascade Eco. It only took a few hundred yards. The pattern has no gauge on it so I just used the recommended needle size. I started it on December 11 and finished the hat on December 12 but had to do the ties (so really December 13). This pattern runs large so Zooey will have to grow into it!

Yep. Another pair just in time for the holidays. Probably one of my favorite patterns to date!

FO - Chair Covers

Our kitchen chairs are a strange shape and regular pads don't cover them well. I decided to recover them before the holidays. I love how they came out!

FO - Dana's Mimosa Top

This is the Mimosa top from an Interweave magazine a few years ago. She started it and got part way through the back. I've finished it for her for Christmas. The only modification to the pattern was to make the torso longer.

FO - New Pattern 2013 Mittens





Zooey's 2013 mittens are finished!  Pattern is free on Ravelry.  I used left over yarns for this and think you could easily make these for any little boy or girl in your life.
