holiday spirit

9 days until Christmas!!

Making my way through the Christmas holiday. Every year the girls receive a new Christmas ornament. A little tradition I started for Miss K’s first Christmas almost 10 years ago. So this year I thought it would be extra special if I made both girls their ornaments.

Pattern: Mini Sweater Ornament by Greens and Jeans
Needles: Size 0 since my size 1’s are currently holding another project
Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Cotton for both
Mods: Miss K’s was made as the pattern was written, Miss L’s is suppose to be a dress. I increased every three rounds on hers till I was happy with the little flare.
Cost: FREE! Well, I did buy the yarn sometime last year, but everything I used was already in my stash.
Overall: These were so fun and so simple to make. Probably the best mini sweater pattern I have found. If I can get off my tooshy, I am hoping to make many more for our tree next year.

In other holiday spirit news, the Christmas tree is decorated, stockings are hung with care, and two anxious children patiently await.


I heard that reading by Christmas light is the best way to make the time go by.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
