Snow WIP Wednesday

The snow here refuses to stop and we are now snowed in - both cars are stuck and the schools/work are closed. This was earlier (it's even worse now!)

So, I thought we might as well decorate our Christmas tree - my first ever real one. I'm so excited!

It's a bit on the small side, compared to our usual 6ft fake one, but actually it's nice to be able to see the tv without having to crane our necks lol!

So, it's WIP progress Wednesday, and currently I am working on another lovely Lupo beret (a fab and free Ravelry pattern). My sister, having eyed up my raspberry-coloured version, now wants a cream one. And with both her birthday and Christmas coming up, well I couldn't refuse could I?! It's not one I particularly enjoy knitting, the seed stitch is annoying and I can't seem to keep the yarn over swirl pattern going properly, but the result makes it worthwhile. Here's mine.

And here's another Shroom (another free Ravelry pattern) I finished just in time for the snow.

Catch you soon :)

WHOA, i LOVE that swirl design at the top of the beret! Super awesome.

Try and stay warm with all of that snow! It's a great time for knitting.

Oh yeah, and once you have a real Christmas tree, you never go back!

I love that beret.

That is a lot of snow.

I love real Christmas trees but I'm allergic and pine makes wheeze. I do suffer through it on the occasional year.

What a lovely beret pattern. Your raspberry one is beautiful. The swirls really pop against the seed stitch.

I can't believe this is your very first real Christmas tree! You will love it. If feels so much more like Christmas!
