Winter Storm 2016 Knitting

Nothing like a foot of snow to strand you at home and get you in the mood for knitting! Winter Storm 2016 allowed me to slow down and do a little guilt free knitting. I had purchased a few skeins of Downton Abbey yarn recently, not because I needed it, but because I love the show!

I decided on the Hermione Hat pattern for my daughter in a color she has not worn before but I have always encouraged her to wear. A day and a half later and here she is.

My second Winter Storm 2016 project was to finish a pullover sweater for my grandson which I started last October. The pattern is A Simple Baby Pullover and the yarn is Vanna's Choice from Michael's Crafts.

Now on to Winter Storm project #3 which will be fingerless mitts to match my daughter's hat!
