Making Progress

In July [yes, July], I decided to make four sets of scarves & hats for my grandchildren for Christmas.  I have to admit that although I’ve struggled with picking out patterns and yarns for each, I’ve had a really great time.  As I made each hat, each scarf – I thought about the child for which it was intended; then as I made each thing, I would think fondly of that child – about all the many cool things there is about each one, and how each one just delights me to no end.  (Yes, I’m a Mimi that’s totally in love with my grandbabies!) — It’s been fun.  And while the things that I make for the kids will probably always be thought of as people do about those tacky Christmas sweaters that Great Aunt Lollie knits for everyone, it’s been fun for me – and I bet their mother will make them wear them in front of me, at least once! 😀

Many thanks to all the great folks out there that provided the patterns.  I’ve included your sites on my Free Patterns Page as well.  Thank you Ladies!
