Tiny's Reversible Hat

yarn 1- black alpaca 100% natural undyed
yarn 2- wool / silk blend
I had selected the wool / silk blend because of the color. I thought it would look fantastic with my husband's, Brady's and Tiny's eye color.  This hat is reversible. Now Brady and Tiny have hats. I have to finish Freddy's before Christmas.

Andee's Dark Gray Scarf

This similar to the infinity scarf except it is not joined in the round.
yarn- Eco Baby Alpaca 100% natural undyed
needles- size 10 circular

Below I helped myself to some of my sister's hand dyed yarn. Thanks Liz. If I don't use it right away I'll post it on Etsy or return it to you. But I loved the colors and I couldn't resist helping myself.

I would like to wish everyone joining along with Ginny's Yarn Along the warmest Christmas wishes. Thank you for taking time to visit my Blog. I try to visit everyone's Blog on the Yarn Along (even if it takes me a week to get to everyone's link.)  I am so inspired by everyone's posts.
I am looking forward to Christmas Eve after all the presents have been wrapped and my needles have been set down (if I didn't finish knitting it, then it will be next years present).  I am looking forward to going to church with my family, watching my boys participating in the church live nativity seen (I wonder what part my boys will be this year), holding candles and singing "Silent Night".
Then going to my parents for a delicious dinner and then opening presents by a warm fire.
Only a few more days!
Merry Christmas
