This little bolero is for my niece Abbey.
Though it's not actually her Christmas present it is to wear on Christmas.
She'll be wearing a lovely off-white dress
that she wore as a flower girl this past summer.
The yarn used is Knit Pick's Wool of the Andes Sport in Hollyberry.
The pattern is a Debbie Bliss pattern for babies
that I adapted from 12-18 month to fit a 6 year old.
I also added the bobble trim cuz I'm just fond of it! ;)
This next knit is probably the manliest thing I've ever featured on this blog. ;)
For Dad, ever the war history buff.
This "trigger mitt" pattern is from 1951.
Here they are in progress.
And here they are all finished!
Along with a stocking cap made from the 1934 pattern book.
Honestly a stocking cap is a stocking cap. I'm sure the pattern hasn't changed much.
BUT I know the that it's made from a 1934 pattern & that makes me happy. :)
