Hot off the needles

Due to severe budget constraints this year (caused by the untimely demise of our fridge, our freezer, our CD player, and as of yesterday, our VCR), I have been making as many gifts as I can. My nephew James, who is one, and therefore too young to read this blog, is getting this hat. It is the same pattern as Gemma's, but I knit an extra band, as I found that Gemma's didn't come down to the nape of her neck where I thought it ought to be.

  1. Lovely! And I so understand about the demise of appliances and electronics - we have lots of things hanging on by a thread - literally!

  3. lovely little hat.
    i wish i had the time to make more gifts. but that is something i should've been doing all year long...sigh.
    i almost wish the whole present aspect of Christmas would disappear completely. except for a few epiphany tidbits.
    does that sound scroogish or grinch-ish of me?
    hope not.
    'cause my heart is really in the right place.
    i am just so sick of stuff.

  4. Love the hat. Little James is very fortunate. I personally think home made gifts are so much better. It shows how much you care when you invest precious time and energy into the gift.
