Is everyone feeling festive? We have two new ornaments on the tree this year...
a sparkly Tardis and
a cheery red Dalek.
Nigel made sure that the Dalek shared the top of the tree with Darth Vader. Evil must reign, and all that!
And a smidge more darkness...
this little fellow. I meant to have him made for Hallowe'en, but didn't get him started until early November. Does he look a wee bit pudgy?
Well, that's because he's really a werewolf.
Wait, no, he's just a regular guy...
Ack! No, no it's a werewolf!
Oooh, it's a Topsy Turvy Werewolf. Clever, yes?
I'll show you something I made this December (see, I am getting caught up), these lovely, cosy mittens. Made for me!
These were based on the Westie Mittens pattern by Michelle Czyzo. I worked them in Filatura Di Crosa Zara in black and Elann Pure Angora in white. The pattern was very sweet, but I didn't trust the stitch numbers with the suggested yarn and needles size. It looked as though they'd knit up too narrow and too long for my hands, so I redrafted the entire pattern. I ended up deleting the first nine rows of the body of the mitten and adding a traditional Norwegian gored thumb - my favourite thumb - does anyone else have a favourite thumb?.
