Reindeer Games

I finished Oldest's 2008 ornament yesterday, just in time! The model was stitched 1 over 1 on 27ct fabric...I stitched it 2 over 2 on 32ct and it measures approximately 3 inches.

The reindeer trio, from left to right: Oldest's, Middle's, Youngest's.


You can just make out in the background of these pics, my all-time favorite knitting project. Those little mittens were knit for Oldest when she was in preschool. And then they went on to warm the hands of Middle and Youngest when they trotted off to preschool themselves :)

Wishing you a very Stitchy New Year!!!
