|Pattern: Sweater Christmas Ornament Knitting Pattern|
After finishing my fingerless gloves I needed another win that was mostly mindless so I cast on for the first of the advent ornaments. This tiny sweater is knit with the same yarn I used to knit him a sweater this summer. It is not supposed to be a zero on the shirt but an "O" for his name. I may go back and cleverly adjust the "O".

I am so thrilled with how quickly this glove is knitting up the second time! I haven't worked on it in a few days, but I will again this week. I visited a friend this past week and while our kids frolicked I did quite a bit of knitting then.
I am almost finished a bunny made from this pattern. I have knit this little doll probably twelve times. I even made four bears. It is quick and the pattern is well written. If you like knitting toys I highly recommend checking out TwinsKnit. They have quite the variety of dolls, bears, foxes, bunnies, and more!
Now that the bunny is all put together I get to do the fun part: clothes! I am working on some clothes for her (free hand and no pattern) and finished a skirt with feather and fan lace and I am working on a cardigan that may end up being a dress instead, I haven't decided. Once her clothes are finished I'll figure out what I want to do about her ears. I'm not sure if I want them floppy or straight or how to achieve it--any ideas?
I neglected to take her photo, but if you check back this week there may be one up of her finished and with clothes!
