I've been busy working on Christmas gifts - and those recipients, as much as I love them, tend to nose around my blog posts & flickr page so I haven't been able to show off what I've done. But my youngest nephew is a December baby and when I saw ran across a certain pattern, I had to make it for him.
That's both of my nephews in the shot actually - birthday boy is 5, the other is 7.
It's a new adorable pattern - the Deep Blue Sea Shark Mittens
. My nephew is obsessed with sharks - he loves to tell me all about them & what they eat - in fact, we had an enjoyable Thanksgiving, watching the Mythbuster's shark episode together.
They look so sad off of the hands though.
I used Swish Bulky in Squirrel Heather for the body & a double strand of some Wool of the Andes I had laying around for the mouth & teeth.
My nephew was so delighted & I got them to him just in time - it's painfully cold out there!
How is everyone else's holiday knitting going?
