December, January, February Knitting!

I guess it's time to catch up on what I've been knitting! I suppose this shows that I prefer to knit than blog. At the beginning of December I was working on another Jean Greenhowe topsy-turnabout doll. I had so many other things going on that I decided to put it on hold and finish it in January for my daughter's birthday, instead of her daughter's birthday.

Now I remember why I don't really like to blog. I have a hard time getting my pictures to sit where I want them to sit. But it's okay. Someday I'll get it! 

 So I made this little turnabout bunny/duck for Elizabeth
I made a bunch of felted ornaments for my family! I made one for everyone with their names. And some for friends too! 

Here are some very warm mitten/gloves for Mary.  This is yarn from her trip to Rhode Island
This was a fun scarf for Mary. 

My niece was so nice to show them off
I made these cool wrist warmers for a friend who sews. So we traded and I did the warmers and she made a fleece outfit for my hubby! Turned out great! I also made a cute little llama for Dr. Dan. but I didn't get a picture of it. 
This is Alexander's Lion!
These are my son-in-law's mitten/gloves. Which starts me out for the year. I plan to make something like this for all my son's and son-in-laws this year. 

A dragon for Bradley 
So this brings me up to January 11......... So here I am thinking................................................................................................. Okay, I'm done thinking... What's next?
The doll for Tina was next..
And a scarf too..
Now only 6 more projects to talk about

There are 3 kids birthdays in February so I did 

A giraffe for Cathrine

And another cowboy doll for Johnny!
A cowboy doll for Jacob

My daughter and I took a very awesome trip to the Oregon Coast during February! We had a marvelous time!

I could write tons about our trip! It was fabulous! While I was gone I did these gloves/mittens for my husband!
It worked great, because they were small and a nice easy stockinette stitch. 
It was my birthday in February, so while I was gone I bought some yarn at Cannon Beach and made a very cute little bag
My Cannon Beach Bag! Just big enough for my wallet and a ball of yarn!
My other project was a sweater. But I didn't like the yarn for the sweater I was making , so I felted it and I'm going to turn it into a wallet. So I will save that project till my next blog. It 's amazing that I am still so excited about knitting! I just seam to always find more to enjoy about it!
