Busy little elf

We were promised no snow for Christmas, but awakened this morning to a dusting that covered the sidewalks, streets and lawn. It wasn't enough to build a snowman, so I made my own using other ingredients.

This is the Snowman Hat from, itty-bitty hats. It was a total joy to knit. The hat took the duration of watching Mama Mia while knitting, or not long at all.

His adornments took forever! I hope it fits the recipient.

And so my friends, with a knitted gift to give, it must truly be Christmas. May you all have a wondrous and joyous holiday.

Love, love that snowman hat. It is too cute. My sister is doing much better since her heart attack. She went home for a few days to enjoy her grands.

Wishing you and your family and of course Leo, a very Merry Christmas.

Jadekitty, this is one of the baby hats found in the book, Itty-Bitty Hats, by, Susan B. Anderson. I've made a couple of her hats and they are quick, easy and always a pleasure. All told, this one took about 4 hours to knit.
