It seems to me, the eighties are coming back. (Skinny jeans?) So here are some leg warmers I knit up for my friends' little girl. I think they are adorable and am planning on making my girls a pair in every color. Even though I doubt my girls will actually where them. Why is it they don't appreciate all the things I can make??? At least my baby won't have a choice! Ha!

I am creating a pattern for the knitted headbands with flowers that everyone around seems to be wearing. At least I see them on lots of people as I've been out Christmas shopping. A neighbor brought one over for me to look at and I finally worked out the pattern. I will post pictures soon.
Also in the works is my pattern for mitten animals. My favorite are the sharks that I am giving my son for Christmas. The shark teeth are the best. Thanks to friends who know how to crochet better than I do!

These stockings have been years in the making, but they are finally all complete. I started making the kids' stockings for each of their first Christmases. After the third kid, I decided I really should make Mom and Dad ones. AND, since we're expecting a new baby just after Christmas, I should make hers as well. I got busy and decided this was the year to hang all the stockings. And they are probably my favorite decoration.

I am a terrible blogger! But I have been busy creating. Here is a picture of the dolls I made for my girls for Christmas. Here is the link to the pattern. I changed it up a little and did the hair a little differently. I love how they turned out and am excited to give them to the girls!

I love these little sandals! I followed a pattern (well, sort of) for the most part. It called for a button on the side but I kept thinking that the shoes would never stay on. So I decided to try putting elastic inside the band that goes around the ankle. It stretches to get them on and then stays snug against the foot.
I made these for a friend who wanted a pair for the fourth of July. I am so excited about them!

I'm glad (ok, only a little glad) for the cold weather that gave my niece a few more chances to wear the beaded hat! It was too big for her when she was born. Now that it finally fits, we're heading into summer. I'll just have to make another one for next winter.
Knitting with beads is surprisingly easy and fun. Of course, I had to rewrite this pattern to my liking. It's a pattern found on Ravelry if anyone is interested. Thanks Jessie for finding super great patterns for me to try out!
