A month in knitting: December 2014

Off the needles
A Christmas jumper for my son, which I've already written about here.

A beautiful pair of mitts for a friend, technically finished last month, but I didn't get round to blocking them until this month. You can read more about them here.

A pair of hats for a friend's daughters. Hopefully they've gone down well as Christmas presents.

My daughter's stocking
Finished just in time for Christmas!

Ballerina Ruffle Skirt
Made for my friend's daughter. The yarn was a pain to work with, but I love the finished effect.

Summer into Fall
So cute! Just need to wait for my daughter to grow into it now. You can read all about it here.
