i wish that we actually did have snowmen already, but as it's usually far too mild for that in this neck of the woods, the knitted variety will have to do (for now)....
these guys are the cutest little things! i made a few as party gifts for our toddler christmas party last year, and they were such a hit, i had to make them again.
here are the deets:
pattern: mochimochi snowmen by anna hrachovec
2.5mm (for the scarves)
yarn: stash yarn. (sadly i can't quite remember, though i looks like a patons worsted weight)
the scarf i do remember, is noro sock yarn. either the kureyon sock or the silk garden sock. (yes they are fancy schmancy snowmen).. they eyes and arms are vanna's choice. and are just embroidered on.
i also made these little guys into ornaments, cause they're so cute that way. and i think they're happiest when they're hangin' around :)
if you want to check out last years little men, here's the ravelry link. :)
i am actually going to be selling these little cuties at "handmade for the holidays" winter market next week. (with permission) and i think they'll be a hit! of course a few extras had to be made for our tree too. we'd just be too lonely without them.
the pattern is great, and very easy to follow. the beginning rounds are a little tricky what with small needles, but i don't mind. the outcome is just totally worth it.
these little guys are my final entry for celebrate color. i can't believe that the series has come to an end already! i have so enjoyed participating, and seeing all of the wonderful and inspirational projects that have been created! a huge thank you to rachel hauser of stitched in color, emma lamb, mollie of wild olive, and shannon of luvinthemommyhood. this has been such a fun event, and i am so looking forward to the next one! (totally assuming we'll do this again next year) :) the work that went into this must have been huge. i greatly appreciate it!
i know we are now all more than inspired to be crafting away for christmas! i know you can tell i sure am! :)
i am keeping very busy this weekend with finishing up things for the market, and we're going to my son's best friend's birthday part today! it's going to be fun! gymnastics with rambunctious 4 year olds. yesss! ;) we honestly are so excited. amy from family feedbag is baking the cake, so it's gonna be glorious! then after that is the santa claus parade! here's wishing you all a fun filled and exciting weekend too! xo
