Here are the five I've finished so far. Details are on my project page on Ravelry.
In order to support this goal, I found it necessary to do some serious stash enhancement! I was able to aid a fellow Raveler in Utah who is attempting to offload some of her stash. I scored some real bargains in 100% wool superwash.
I can't claim all my yarn purchases this month have been for Sailors. The Christmas sweater I made for Younger Son was a hit with Elder Son -- so I ordered some more Malabrigo Mecha to make a sweater for him:
My eldest great-nephew sent a spectacular Christmas basket. One item was a gift card to my favorite shop, the Loopy Ewe. I determined to buy something just for fun -- isn't it gorgeous? This is their Christmas special colorway from Dream in Color:
And this beauty is washable, but the color repeat is so long I'm not sure it will work for a hat. Any ideas?
I've also knit a "ponytail" hat for my runner niece. The yarn is Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft Worsted -- 100% acrylic, so I made the cuff triple folded. Can you pick out the "ponytail hole?"
The orange is leftover from the Halloween beard I made for Elder Son. It's also acrylic, so not suited for Hats for Sailors. My niece's husband is also a runner, so I decided to use up the bright orange in a hat for him.
One last addition, two special colorways of Lorna's Laces from Ewe & Me:
The top colorway is Air Force blue; the bottom is Denver Broncos orange. I'm sure there's a Broncos fan on whatever ship we knit for this year!
Are you a knitter? What are you knitting this year?
