My niece' sweater is all done. I found the snowflake buttons I was looking for at Rhinebeck. I still have to eventually block it a little. I picked up my two skeins of yarn at Rhinebeck from Claudia at Countrywool. The colors are just right for what I want. I also bought a Gauge Wizard from the Sweater Wizard people (I have Sock Wizard and Math Wizard which I love) and a small sheep keychain from the Sheep Thrills booth.

I am still working on Whitby. I have started the hats. I made one that has snowmen all the way around it but I didn't like the way it came out so the rest of them will be plain. I don't like the Signature yarn on the recommended needles (for a hat, I would like it for a sweater) so I went down a size. I plan to make a snowman and sew one on the front of each and then the pattern has tassel snowmen to attach to the top so they will each get one of those on top, too. I have one with a rolled rim done and the one I am working on now has a ribbed edge.

I won a Poetry in Stitches kit from Wendy at WendyKnits for her Mouse-a-thon raffle. The kit arrived yesterday, yummy. I will be getting the book for Christmas or my Birthday in the spring.
