Happy Holidays!

It's been a while since I posted as I've spent every extra minute working on Christmas projects. You'd think that I'd start earlier, right?
  At the moment we are pretty much snowed in!  Even  a relatively small amount of snow makes going down our hill treacherous! So, what are all these projects that have kept me busy?

These cute little guys are from a kit I got long ago from Val! (I still have 2 more to go.)

This little guy took way longer to make than I expected, but it was worth it because Max loves his new pillow!

Then there were the hats. The lower one was made from mohair and wool yarn held together.

Our youngest grand daughter was looking though one of my knitting books and asked for a purple scarf with this stitch pattern (domino). And the yarn was even chosen from my stash!

The next projects were mitts and bracelets. The mitts are another pattern from Val called Glinda. The bracelets which are fun to make are from a couple of kits.

We've also been doing lots of walking which eats up time but is so worth it when we see sights like this one! (We did not walk in the snow yesterday though.)

OK, one last photo and I will sign off.  One evening our cat was having a conniption at the downstairs window that looks out on our backyard.  Here's what she saw! (Do you think Santa missed him?)

Happy 2022! Let's hope that everyone stays healthy and that COVID finally goes away!

Snow!!! I saw your snow on the news and on that football game yesterday. That's quite a nice covering you had.
Your projects are all so nice. I love that pillow!

Looks like your needles were very busy. The bracelets are very pretty.

Your snow looks very pretty. Glad you can just stay in and enjoy some quiet time. We had about 6 flakes today. LOL

I love your snowman header Judy! :-) Snowpeople are my favorite decoration. Real snow? Not so much. I'm sure glad we aren't living in the trailer this winter. Last year was mild in Spokane compared to what's happening this year. Meanwhile, we haven't had ANY snow yet here which is just fine with me. It is supposed to get subzero by the weeks end though.
You have been a busy little knitter haven't you? All of your projects are so pretty. The bracelets too. I have so much to do and so little time. I don't seem to get nearly as much done anymore since the move.
Take care and stay warm.

Those are all great projects but you know I love those gnomes. The one I kept for myself hangs on the door in my office all year round. He's just too cute to put away.
