Holiday Projects:

Winding down after a busy Solstice season of Holiday shows and Farm work, it was fun to sit down and work on some Holiday gifts for loved ones. It was particularly intriguing to invent this mathematically complex cable design in a cap for my eldest grandson Elliot. I used elements of classic buckle braids in mirror image, interlaced with horseshoe cables.

Messing with the chart as work is underway, I always design ‘on the fly’ it seems.

The finished hat on the husbeast (easier to get him to hold still than to get Elliot to cooperate 🙂










I also did up a quick pair of mittens for my middle grandson, he now wears them non-stop!

I re-visited my fenceline Mittens design for this project

He’s always such a happy little camper

















I did a pair of Celestial themed mitts for my daughter which have been in the works for some time, I was so happy to finally get them done:

All Done, and fitting for a Soltsice Celebration!

My initial design sketch, sort of pleasing to have the original concept somewhat resemble the finished product 🙂
