Norwegian sweater december

(Front of sweater)
My contribution for december.
My little son loves knitted sweaters, and his mom loves knitting them!

I love snowflakes in wintersweaters and hadn't knitted them yet, so after I found this yarn in my stash, I searched for a doable pattern and started knitting and came to the conclusion that I was short on white...

(back of the sweater)

But I had an idea: one of the sleaves got partial red, with a green snowflake, and just a bit white in the background.

Problem solved!

And my little one loves it!

Just like his mom.

Finishing up this pretty little "bowknot bag" in two tone grey. I will line it in Scarlett! I changed the basic pattern just a bit to be more "me". Pattern is by Mindy Vasil.

Hats fpr Wool Aid

Wool Aid provides warm wool items for children in Tibet, Mongolia, and other places with cold winters. I made these hats from worsted scraps left over from other projects. The basic pattern is a free one from Lion Brand Yarn that I found on Ravelry, and it knits up FAST. I added the color work.
