So much to blog about , so little time

I've been knitting like crazy to make gifts for the fam!

First off, My MIL's felted clogs! I used the fiber trends pattern, love it! I've had the pattern for awhile but never used it, I love them!

This is a hat for my BIL, last year he requested one just like Gabes... So he got one.
He has a snowmobile and its that artic green color, you know what I'm talking about right?! Anyways I thought he'd apperciate that color worked into his hat. He also said he wanted a pom pom, but I'm going to wait until after I give it to him just to make sure. This is Hubby being my gracious model!

This is a basic garter siitch scart for my SIL. It's finished but I did't take a pic of it... its all the same. I used a new yarn from my LYS, cascade's Lana Grande. It knit up super quick on size 13!

I've had little time to blog because I had my family visiting... First was my oldest sister and her boyfriend, then my sister Allena and her family! Its a love hate thing. I love hanging out with everyone but I hate when they have to leave, then its back to reality...

Allena taught me how to crochet! Look what I made! Its for Hubbys grandma, my GIL. Allena wrote the pattern, She rocks! I wish I lived closer to all of my family so we could hang out more often. A year between visits is way too long!

And how can I have family visit without pics?!

My oldest sister and boyfriend:

We made a turducken.... yummy!

All the grand kids:

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I didnt realise you had so many siblings. Now I know where Leah gets her red hair from. The pics of all the grandkids looks so cute. I really love the clogs too, very sweet indeed and your brother's hat looks great too. I see that your a natural with the crocheting too.

Wow, you are really doing well on your Christmas knitting (and crocheting too - how great!!). I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time visiting with your family. That's really what the holidays are all about, isn't it?

Great hat! My dad wants an earflap hat. Where did the pattern come from?
