Ornamental Gift

I heart my Ornamental buddy. She sent the most beautiful felted snowman, hand dyed roving that she dyed herself, and a card!

I've already gotten into the roving and spun a little last night!

Here's the baby outfit. It took about 5 days to knit. ok.. heres the stats... The cardi was knit with Laines du Nord (almost 4 skeins) but I dont remember what colorway. The pattern was . It was an easy pattern but the yarn called for size 3 needles, so it took me for ever. I did not put in buttons, but I attached 2 I-cords to the front to make a cute little tie. The pants were made from TLC cotton (2 sheins) on sz 7 needles. That patterncan be found at . This was a VERY quick knit. I think it took me 4 hours to comeplete. Again, in stead of putting elastic in the waistband, I made a drawstring closure using the leftover yarn from the cardi to make an I-cord. The sizes for both were 18-24 months and fit the baby wonderfully :)

Wow!! I can't believe that it's been a month since my last post! I've been knitting like crazy trying to finish up Christmas gifts. As soon as I get to the end of my list 94875398 more gift requests come out of nowhere. I went form having to knit 4 pairs of kid socks, 1 pair of toddler socks, a cabled hat, and an intarsia scarf with my brother's nickname in it, a hat for my husband and an Ornamental gift to also knitting a belt, another pair of toddler socks, a hat for my niece and nephew(which is not done yet), a scarf for my sister(Not even started), a cardi and pant set for 18-24 mo old(the cardi is almost done and the pants not started yet), and a few sweaters to fit my nieces Brat Dolls. Ugh!

I am hoping to finish the cardi today and get started on the pants this evening. Since my brother's b-day is the 27th, im going to wait till after Christmas to start it. It will be knitted on sz 10 1/2 needles so it will go quick.
The scarf for my sister will be knitted as soon as I find a pattern. She gave me an early Christmas present of Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb in the colorway of Purple Club. She also purchased one for herself in the colorway of Flame. They are so beautiful. And soft. And oh so yummy. Since I only have 1 skein of Flame, I dont know what pattern would look nice and make a decent lenght scarf.

I am still teaching the knitting class on Sundays. It's so much fun to see the children knit and actually understand what they are doing to the point where they can fix most of their own mistakes. They love the class so much that on their way out they are talking about the following weeks' class. It's great!!

I am sending out my Ornamental Gift today. I hope she gets it before Christmas. Most likely she will. I hope she likes it :).

Update: Here's the ornament:). I already shipped it so she should get it any day!!
I have tons of pics to post, but they have to wait until HWDT gets back from FL next week somtime with the digital wire for the cam.
