Chilly Birthdays

My baby sister turned 17 at the beginning of this month. Knowing how cold it gets in Minnesota I decided to whip her up something to keep warm with this winter.

My friend Lydia has a pattern that she wrote that I knew would be perfect.

Knit up in super chunky yarn with a swirl of rainbow candy goodness all through it this was such a quick and pleasant knit. I do feel kind of silly with GIANT knitting needles in my hands. But quick! It's the holidays and the end of my school year, I need all the help I can get even if I feel silly.

I also managed to finish my mother-in-laws blanket in the few weeks I've been gone, plus finishing up some other small odd and ends gifts. I've still got lots to work on, some socks, some slippers. Let's just say its going to be a busy few weeks over here.
