If you’ve followed along (or read back through the years) you probably know that I do my best not to ruin any gift giving surprises. And I do have a couple projects saved up for later.
Here’s a nice teaser photo of one such all wrapped up
There is another package roughly similar in size, and a very smooshy green brioche scarf that is currently “Out for Delivery” to my 2015 Secret Santa.
But I am not here just to tease about things to come. I also wanted to share a bit of silliness that I completed… a light up Christmas Tree Hat:
I added 30 lights (2 sets of battery powered 15 light strands) and a knit star to this pattern. Now for me… maybe I just have a bit of a smaller head but the actual hat is a wee large and the battery pack is heavy enough to shift it about on my head, but for a holiday road trip to cheer up family… its perfect. (btw… a giant pillar candle makes a fine head stand in)
In addition to revealing the aforementioned Christmas gifts… I have some things in the queue for these lovelies:
I just need to finish the housework and the pair of rather simple socks on the needles first!
