But before I share the good stuff, here are the completed Christmas knitting projects:
Never Smile at a Crocodile (this scarf is for a good friend's grand-daughter, Belle)
Naran Felted Mittens (these are for Nick)
I'm hoping to have the vest finished this week!
On a more drool-worthy note ... I have been lusting after the Fiddlehead Mittens (designer: Adrian Bizilia) since they hit Ravelry in 2008. Earlier this year I bought a kit for them that included the pattern and the yarn from Tanis Fiber Arts. While awaiting replies about my Hilja Vest, I cast them on.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pattern. The yarn is lovely. The colours are lovely. This is super addictive. I've completed one mitten; it's blocked and drying nicely. I'm going to start the lining tonight ... yes, whilst finishing my Hilja Vest [laughing]. Did I mention they are addictive.
