It is a month away from Christmas so knitting is what I find myself doing much of the time. Hats and mittens for the boys, gifts for family members… knit knit knit!  I absolutely love knitting…. I get most of my patterns from http://ravelry.com.  Tons of free patterns!  I love looking at a pattern or two to get ideas on how to make it or modify my own version of it.  Like this

monster hat!  I modified this adorable pattern to make it better fit my 1year old and I changed the eyes and ear flaps.  The original pattern can be found here:http://www.cyn.ca/knit/patterns/brainmonster/
Or the adorable felted slippers I made for my sister in laws birthday.  Like I said, I love knitting, but by Christmas, these.hands.will.be.tired.
