Santa
Since Santa's presents come in different sizes I decided to try something new in smaller sizes. I just learned how to use dpns, but I am still pretty awkward with them. So as the saying goes, practice makes perfect.

I have wanted to send something here for this project for some time now but never thought I could make anything that small. Well here are two of my efforts so far. One was more pointy and the other was more rounded. I goofed somewhere, but I think they might still take my stuff. I was too late for Christmas '06, but I think I can make it for '07. I am excited to be a part of the efforts, and I hope my efforts get my better with time!

Thanks to Tracy from Wool Windings for the inspiration to create something I have never made before.

Those hats are great! It's always a good idea to get an early start on the Santa Hats. The Preemie Project needs lots of them and will take them anytime of the year. Thanks for helping out!

I have four done and two need pom-poms. They aren't perfect, but I think they will get better the more I do them.

I think my Yahoo stopped seeing your posts. I clicked on your blog just to rag you about not posting often enough, and I found I had missed a couple.
Your hat adventures are cute. I am trying to knit the perfect hat, and am going through a lot of yarn in the process.
Missed you. I'm adding your blog to bloglines right now.

Susan, I had no idea that Yahoo stopped seeing my posts. I don't know very much about that kind of stuff. I just knit and cook! Ha! I have been slowly getting things done but because I am so new, it takes me WAY longer than it does the other bloggers. I am on my last Santa hat. I will do the Pom-poms and then put them away to save up a box for Preemie Project. It might take me the rest of the year to fill that box but it will be fun filling it.

I have a ton of acrylic yarn that I was thinking about knitting up for the Caps for Kids program. It would make kids head warm, I would use up a lot of no so pretty yarn and I would master the hat. I bought three patterns for little kids hats so I think I am set.

Despite how often I don't post; don't forget me! I am slow but I still keep plugging along.
