Yarn Along

I wasn't able to post my Yarn Along activity last week because I was worried the gift I was making would be discovered.  The sweet little girl who got this sweater vest and cap for her 1st birthday looks especially nice in bright colors.  I got the vest pattern here.
I found this book, A Christmas Treasury, at the Goodwill....and I am looking forward to reading it by the fireplace this week.

The hat pattern was a freebie at our local yarn store....I altered it a little...I had to make two of them to get the size right.
This is my first finished knit garment....it was so much fun...I am looking forward to doing more!

It's hard to believe that's your first knitted garment. It looks pro and such a beautiful color too.
