Something Old, Some Things New

About a week ago, I finished my third UFO this month, a really good feeling. This was a raglan sweater I started for Sophia and then decided it would be too big. Well, guess what? It will fit her now! And all that's left is to mail it. The color in the photo is not true as it's actually purple with red and blue flecks. (I'm using the leftovers on David's dinosaur sweater. Stay tuned.)
Sophia's Sweater
This was one of the projects I worked on as we traveled to San Juan Island last week. It's a quick and easy hat pattern that I've made many times. The yarn is called Poems from Wisdom Yarns and was fun to knit.

When we got back home, this was in my mailbox from Jeanne's Whirl into Winter giveaway, a real surprise because I never expect to win a drawing. Isn't her card cute? Nice fabric to get busy and sew!
Thank you, Jeanne
