Baby It's Cold Outside

Over the Christmas holidays, we were pleased that my brother and SIL were able to drive down and stay for about a week.  During that time, Mona and I had a blast in Charlotte, going from shop to shop together.  Don't worry; we didn't spend all we didn't have (lol) but it was fun.

I've wanted to make Mona something for awhile, but just didn't know what to make.  So, I was so glad when she asked if I would make her a hat with a flower on it.  Who knew that's what she wanted?  It's nice when people can pick out their own yarn because then you know that they really will enjoy their handmade item and have something to match it with.  So, Mona picked out this super soft black fiesta yarn from Hobby Lobby and I finally finished making her hat.  Then I realized that there was just enough yarn in that skein for a neckwarmer too, so my dear SIL should be all cozy during this winter season.  My brother already phoned and said they had snow in the area, so this duo has recently taken flight.

I don't think she'll mind me trying on her hat set.  :-)


It feels really nice to mark one item off my "Keeping Promises" list.  *wink*

Happy Crafting,
