A Christmas Miracle

A Christmas Miracle (or two)

To all those celebrating, Happy Christmas. Two updates to my Ravelry designs is both a Christmas Miracle and my gift to you all!

Two Completed Patterns IS a Christmas Miracle

Last week, I promised that I’d update the Seven-Up Scarf.  Between then and now, someone asked me for a pattern for the most recent hat I knitted with Uneek Worsted yarn. I ended up doing both.

The hat pattern is free (since there is NOTHING revolutionary about it). The Seven Up Scarf didn’t change price. It’s just in the more updated format for my patterns and has some helpful notes about the design.

Other Christmas Miracles

The post office delivered a parcel all the way from Dunedin, New Zealand from James.

Among other things, the special parcel came with these wonderful confections that look like morel mushrooms.

They’re called Fairy Mushrooms.  How much more thoughtful a gift could he send to Thaddeus and I?

Finn has been an angel these days…hoping to not get coal in his stocking.

He’s not fooling anyone.

And if that’s not miracle-filled enough, I also got Christmas cherry pie and leftover-dough cookies from Thaddeus.

I have been truly blessed this year (in even more ways than I wrote about). I am grateful…so grateful.

Current Knitting

I finished the half-finger gloves (based on Aaron’s Choose Your Cable Adventure Glove pattern) and they came out exceptionally well.

Given how quickly I can knit a pair of these, I may include them in future craft show offerings.  We’ll see.

Miracle of miracles, I was also able to test-knit my new hat pattern with another version done in Noro Kureopatora.

Here’s what the top-spiral-decrease section looks like on a less-smooth yarn.

Overall, I’m quite pleased with this revised hat pattern design. It’s warmer, slightly larger and aesthetically more well-balanced.
