I've been fighting a sinus infection for about 2 weeks, and today it hit with a vengeance. Typical, huh? Sick for the holiday? Actually, for me, it's been a few years since this happened, so I suppose I should consider myself lucky.
While I did run out to the grocery store this afternoon, today has mostly been an indoor day and I finished the last of the Christmas gifts that had to be done by tomorrow...(I still have one more thing OTN, but it's okay to wait till next week)
Since they're for the two younger grandsons and I know they're in bed now, I think it's safe to show them...
I used more stash yarn - the Red Heart Kids. My only concern is that the smaller ones will be too small for the three year old. He's a big boy.
But I knew the larger ones (for DGS2) would be fine, as he's a bit bigger than my eldest grandson, and my earlier set is too big for DGS1. So I think everything will be fine - and if they're not, the smaller ones will get donated and I'll make another pair for the littlest grandson.
A bit of knitting detail: the larger pairs were knit on size 8 needles, and the smaller ones on size 5s. The pattern is Basic Mittens for Children which is a free pattern. I'll be making some for our NoSoKnit during 2010, as these are amazingly easy and fast. The smaller pair? I made, start to finish, today. The blue/green pair I had on the needles yesterday at work, but since I didn't have a lot of time to knit yesterday, they were mostly done today. See what I mean? FAST.
The Meezer and I wish you all the very happiest of Christmases, and we're heading off to bed early...
After all, Santa is coming and we don't want him to by-pass us because the lights are on, dontcha know?
