Witch Doctors and Voodoo

Found this little cable holder on Ravelry, and HAD to make one.  Then I decided I needed a voodoo guy to match.  I had to make some revisions;  I didn't have any pull tabs, so I made I-cord to hold onto my finger.
This was so fun.  If I know anyone who does lots of cable stitches, she may just get one of these!!!

I saw the witch doctor

Yes, I have definitely lost it, but I love crazy!!!

Jacoby fingerless mittens

It only took me 7 days, but I got these done (two at a time!) for a girlfriend who is leaving next Friday for Winter in Arizona.

Do you love my model?   I shall call her Lefty.  Found her at a beauty supply store.  My son said it creeped him out!!!!

Merry Christmas to all!!

Busy little hands

My, oh my, my little hands are tired.  I still have one more set of wristlets to make; they are about 2.5 inches along.
BUT,  what I have finished is below.

Susie's Reading Mitts:

Made with hand-dyed yarn from my favorite little yarn store in Kansas.

For Good Hat:

Girl's Helmet Cap:

The helmet cap is from an old pattern my mom had.  Many thanks to Miss Hilda, the model (even though she has a SMALL head).  The hats will be given to charity; the mitts to my future daughter-in-law!!!!  Yay!!!  Nick is engaged!!!
