Molly and Dolly

We love to see what folks have made. Audrey sent these pictures to me.

She used the Marble yarn and Knitting Pure and Simple's Girl's One Button Cardigan. She found the pattern for the doll sweater on Ravelry.

Don't you love it?

123. That is as in one hundred and twenty-three. As in what you have knitted and crocheted for the families of our community.

As of Tuesday, 1-19-2010, you had turned in 50 hats, 42 scarfs, 27 mittens, one headband, one pair of socks, and one toy.

Marilyn crocheted 34 scarfs.

Inmates at the jail took wool sweaters, felted them, and sewed them into mittens and a toy.

Here is Tricia, of Parenting Communities, and her son, Thomas, checking out the goodies.

123 items were given to Parenting Communities, Headstart, and other agencies that work with families in Leelanau County.

Add ImageFun, fun. This is for my daughter's boyfriend. It is the Boyfriend Hat. Appropriately labeled, don't you think?

Tiffany, from my favorite bank (Northwestern in Leland) is my model. Yarn is Deep Pine Lamb's Pride Worsted. US 8 needle.

Flying time

Whew! The holiday season whooshed past and I am still wondering what happened.

I did finish two cowls (my new favorite knit. Quick and fun.)

The pattern is Dolores Park Cowl.

This one is knitted with Misti Alpaca Chunky Handpainted.

And this one is knitted with Mountain Colors Wool Quarters, double stranded.

I baked bread.
And enjoyed having my grown children and their friends.

Oh, yes, and their dogs.

I hope your holiday season was as wonderful as ours.
