This is definitely the time for them. Today we had our second snowfall of the season, in Berlin. It was beautiful waking up and seeing snow on the roofs. Too bad it didn't stay on the ground though. I usually love snow up until the middle of January!
Here are a few things that I've knit over the years. I just learned to crochet this year, thanks to my friend Becky. I cut my teeth on the baby blanket pictured at the top, and I have to say that I'm fairly pleased with the results. I had an enormous blue ball of yarn that was salvaged from my Grandmother's house after she passed away. I finished the white scarf last winter, and even though I love it, didn't end up wearing it too often because it's just not thick enough for my taste. I finished the bulky grey cowl the first fall that we were in Berlin. I love love love it and still wear it all the time.
I've been searching for easy to knit baby clothes patterns and will hopefully get started on some cute little pants with feet in them over the next couple of weeks. Until then I'll be a living, breathing Christmas present factory.
