The goals for January are moving along. The Rogue is about 25% done--starting on the front after finishing the back. You'll be spared a picture for today while I finish up a couple of other things.
These Ugg Booties and Hat were finished in plenty of time for Saturday's shower.
I used Lion Brand suede and some leftover alpaca boucle.(aside note: it's sad, but true. I had to look up how to spell suede. Tried Swede, but no, that's a person from Sweden. Swade? Sweade? If anyone finds my brain running around, please return it to me. Include, if desired, a dictionary and a book on English grammar usage.)
The pattern had to be sized down quite a bit, starting with 22 stitches and adjusting accordingly throughout. The hat was cast on with 48 sts, a couple of rows of garter alpaca, then knit for 4.5 inches before doing the decreases. I'm hoping that the soon-to-be-born boy can wear both garments at the same time, and preferably not during the middle of the summer. :)
I've started a helmet liner, this time in tan. It's to join the black one, hopefully to be mailed out before the postage rate increase.
