Become a follower, leave a comment if you would like and I will announce the winner next week!
This is my hat and mitten advent calendar... I bought it when my favorite little yarn store went out of business. They sold it for (gasp) $15! I hang it up on my mantle every year.
This year I decided that I needed to make two advent calendars... for my little nieces and nephews.
I started knitting these cute little hats and mittens in March when we drove to California for spring break. Of course, I petered out on the project and haven't finished. Well this week, I'm visiting one set of those little nieces and nephews in Texas so I had a little motivation to get it done.
It's like a little elf hat store around here...
Their mommies can fill them with all sorts of cute little things. I'm going to hang them onto the cord with little clothespins with number tags. Those definitely aren't done yet.
If you want to take on this crazy project, you will find the pattern here...http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/adventskalendar
Have a wonderful day. xoxo Jenni
