1-Pinwheel Blanket by KnittingLinquist and the
2-Cashmere Clapotis by Rachel is beautiful.
3-The last but least is the Baby Cardigan by Kala (vegancraftastic). I also love those 7 little trees by Kala too!
This was so fun! Thank you for selecting me to win. I sent you my request for yarn by email.
Happy Holidays to all! I hope to knit along with everyone in the group again.
Yes, I'm not quite sane so I knit not one, but two pairs of socks for my husband. This pair is also knit with Panda Cotton, this time in the fern colorway. I'm almost done with my Christmas crafting now, I just have to finished the skull scarf for my husband that doesn't seem to be knitting itself for some reason. Lazy scarf!

it's a PAIR of socks knit with panda superwash "joyful". i finished up the toe of the second sock on dec 1st! but they are done. pattern will eventually be available on the crystal palace yarn website. i used the jojo heel and they are nice for a short row heel. i did add a mini 1" heel flap before knitting the heel; otherwise, the sock would not fit.
and i finished a "PAIR" of "turn-a-square" hats for my nephews. i have one more to knit.

Well. I still can't post. I'm using email@example.com but I can only get into my own blog.
So, if you can stand it, I'll send you my info.
Oh, it looks like my name has been removed from the web page. I'm rita, but not mlj1954.
a photo of me wearing what I'm now calling my Big @ss Wrap. I don't have an editing program on this computer, so I can't show a photo of me wearing it; I did earlier send my photo of it hanging over a chair. Claudia Hand Painted Worsted, 3 skeins of Roasted Chilies, total 504 yards.
Then I knit a second Big @ss Wrap, same yarn, same yardage. (photo #1). This one has a blue button. Next one I'll knit without a buttonhole and use a shawl pin to close it.
I posted photos of both of them in progress earlier in the contest.
I knit a hat and scarf for my grandson who lives in Orlando. It gets awfully cold there in Florida; he won't leave the house without a coat and hat if it's below 70. (photo 2 shows progress; photo 3 shows finished, with my husband modeling.)
Hat made from Claudia Hand Painted Worsted Deep Blue and Claudia's fingering (unknown colorway), held together, approximately 100 yards; scarf is made from the Deep Blue only and took about 270 yards. These were finished just in time, on November 30 just before I went to bed.
I started some other things but didn't finish them in time. Actually, they haven't been finished yet! I did knit one sock, but since it's not a pair it doesn't count.
I don't think I knit anything else that can be counted. It was fun, it encouraged me to knit faster, and I thoroughly enjoyed the KAL!

My daughter´s Notre Dame de Grace Sweater is finished as well but I have no picture as I have and had problems with my camera. However Barbara is enjoying her new sweater. She is moving to another city where she will be working at the University. The year may be ending yet there are many beginnings. A new sweater may add a little comfort.
Today I browsed this blog and would like to thank all participants for posting here. Isn´t it amazing how many beautiful things have been made during these weeks?
Wishing you all a wonderful time coming
