This weekend has been about hats and pants - dressing my family from top to bottom. :-)
I completed my first Christmas gift - a Jacques Cousteau hat out of Cascade 220. Very pleased with this pattern. The knitting is easy but provides just enough interest to keep engaged. Using sz. 7 needles, I used just over 2 skeins of yarn.
And my daughters Portobello Pixie capris. A novice sewist, this pattern was comprehensive enough to fairly easily transition from one step to the next without major problems. The finished project is outstanding, and I can't wait to make more. This time around, I used Alexander Henry Mocca fabric.
