The Final Theme-a-licious!



Remember how November was No-Xs November? Well, there weren't any in Do What You Will December, either! =) This is usually how my Decembers go...what with choir rehearsals and performances, holiday events, baking, trying to finish everything up at work before vacation, etc., there is not much time to sit and stitch!

I had decided in the Fall that I wanted to participate in Loopy Academy, so I ordered yarn...
...and away I went. You've already seen the first project, which was a cowl in fingering weight (posted in the previous post).

The second project was to be mittens in worsted weight yarn.
These are Emma's Mittens. They were fun to knit, although I'm still not a fan of bobbles. I'm never sure if mine look right! I apologize for the not-so-great picture...it has not been very sunny here, so this was taken under an Ott light! And yes, I really am that pale! =)

The final project is a hat in sport weight. Will I finish it by tonight?? Oh, the suspense! =)



So what did you will your December stitching to be? Do you have a clean slate for 2015? Please add your link below (to your latest Theme-a-licious post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) Thank you again to all of you that "themed" along with me, whether you stitched along, commented on themers' posts, or just admired our work in silence. =) You guys all rock!!!!

See you for March Madness...oh, yes, that will still happen. ;)

oh I love the new yarns. the bobbles look perfectly fine to me (although I must say, I don't knit!).
we should have a paleness contest, you and I, and see who wins the 19th century look-book prize ;)
you know, I was thinking - what if I did all of last year's themes? I only managed to post once in '14! I'm off working on pine trees and poinsettias for the Jardin January reprise :D
lots of hugs and Happy New Year,
chiara

Great Theme-a-licious 2014, I have enjoyed a lot to participate to some months themes. Made my stitch year more enthusiastic and exciting. THANKS. Knit looks so amazing made by you. Bonne année, tous mes meilleurs voeux sincères pour 2015.

I'm in mourning for Theme-a-licious! I like the idea of revisiting previous themes though. Maybe I will just randomly choose one that best fits the month's stitching anyways!

Nice knitting too.

The cowl and hat for Loopy Academy were easy (for me) but the mittens were close to disaster. But they are done and posted on TLE. Ready for Spring Semester!

Your projects look mah-velous, as usual! :)
