Nauti Knitter: Swartz's A Christmas Story Cap

Well in the past month, probably longer, I have been doing a TON of knitting for Christmas presents. Sadly, that means my blog posts have been nonexistent. I do however have a great project to show you right now!

I had seen this hat a very long time ago and always thought how adorable it was. However, I would never waste my time making it because I would never wear it nor know someone that would wear it. I was proven wrong on the latter because a mom at my church asked me if I could possibly knit this hat for her son. I excitedly agreed and was very pleased with the outcome.

My luck got even better when I finished the hat. My brother and one of his friends were home for me to take pictures of them modeling my hat. My only regret is I did not take one in front of our Christmas tree.

As for the actual pattern, I thought it was a very easy pattern and actually knit up fairly quick, considering how long the hat tail is.

Now onto more of the pictures!

This last one might be my favorite picture! It reminded me of Horton Hears a Who!

Well this will be my final post before the New Year! Hope everyone had a safe and Merry Christmas!

Flicker Account

As a blogger, you always want to think as to how you can do things better! Or in some cases, how to do them more easily. So, I decided to get a Flickr Account. I have uploaded a ton of my old knitting projects and plan on adding pictures not only on my posts to to my account. You can also use your Flickr photos on Ravelry! I am hoping this will make things easier all the way around!

Feel free to upload your photos of my projects as well!

Anthropology Inspirations!

Recently, I have been loving the store Anthropology. Unfortunately, I have not been loving their prices!! So I have decided that I could make some of the stuff I have seen and loved there myself.

My sister showed me a really great headband/earwarmer from there that really was just some basic braided cables! I also had just bought the perfect yarn for the project. The pattern for that will be up soon!

I also saw another great headband that I whipped up in no time! Pattern for that coming as well. (picture can be found here)

Finally, there is a gorgeous bedspread that Kojo Designs made. I definitely am planning on making that as soon as I need a new spread!

Once the holiday season comes to a close I will be posting a whole lot more often! Also I will have multiple new patterns for you to try out!
