'Merry Christmas' hats

These are the 'Norwegian Star Earflap Hats' by Tiennie and they were a big hit.
I used Wool-Ease. Colours:- Oxford gray and Forest green.
Needles:-Sz#7 circular
I did a diamond pattern on one hat!!
I knit a two colour I-cord.
The wee boys loved their hats!!!
Merry Christmas everyone.
Happy knitting.

Christmas Ball Cozy....

These little knit cozies were made using leftover sox yarn..and they are so cute! I used leftover sox yarn e.g. Claudia, Noro, Red Heart, Trekking, CTH and Opal. Really any self striping or patterned yarn would work! I used Sz#1 DP's and I embellished some with gold embroidery floss. I also knit a little cable on one!!

I loved knitting these and the Grand Poobah made me a little metal tree (similar to a mug tree) to display them....aww..thanks honey!!!

Happy knitting.

The "Jojo" heel

These sox are for my youngest grandson James for Christmas. He's 5.

I knit them mostly on our 5 1/2 hour drive to visit them at Thanksgiving. I really didn't get as much knitting done as I'd hoped...considering it's 11 hours total in the car!!!
Yarn:- Red Heart; Heart&Sole Colour:- Congo. ( I love this colour and I am a big fan of the yarn; for the price, the wash-ability,the colourways for kids and it's also non-splitty.)


I decided to do a short-row "JoJo" heel and I love how it looks. No wraps here!!!!

Pattern:-I just cast on 50sts., and worked a k4 p1rib and carried it down the foot to the toe.

For the heel I used the instructions from a Regia phamplet; No.37.

The 'Grand Poobah" made me blockers for both the boys sizes...did I not tell you we have waaaay too much time on our hands!

Happy knitting.
