brightest day

The countdown is on! Only 22 days to Christmas.

Waiting for Christmas is special every year and this year is no exception. The first weeks of December might be just about the best time of the whole year! I'm going to dedicate these weeks to all those loose ends, all the many designs that have been waiting, delayed or otherwise forgotten. Or just barely finished! Let's see how many I actually manage to accomplish this December.

First a cute beanie pattern -
