Something else for the box


Last night I completed three more things for the Christmas box which I'll show you over the next couple of days.  This time I'll show you what our grandson will be receiving...

and here's a closeup of the pattern

The pattern is the 'Seamless Baby Hoodie'
by Jeannette Murphy and can be 
found HERE

Yarn is Heartland by Lion Brand.

I chose to add a button band with buttons rather than using the zipper as called for, mainly because our grandson is very (!!) tall and I needed to add extra length.   

- HERE's a really cute little project that would be wonderful little gifts.  And HERE is another one.

- And HERE's another fun thing to make for gifts or for yourself.

- THIS is a nice bag pattern that could be useful for so many occasions.

- And THIS falls under the awwwww category.  And if you go to THIS link at her site there are lots of free patterns.

Today your quote is about that awful white stuff (only because we woke up to it this morning) and comes from Carl Reiner..."A lot of people like snow.  I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water"    (My sentiments exactly!!!)

Dinosaur buttons! He'll like these much more than a zipper.

The Hoodie will be perfect for wintertime and the buttons will bring pleasure, I'm sure, to your GK.

OH MY!!! SO many great sites! I LOVE that little key chain bag and the notions bag! I am a "Medium" level crochet-er and I always dabble in a few projects now and then so I bookmarked the site with the free patterns. And YES, I did literally go "AWWWWW" when I saw the bib. Your sweater is ADORABLE -- love the buttons!! Thanks for visiting my blog and for all of these great links!
