I can't believe it's so far into December. What was I thinking? Anyway, here's some links for you today

I printed this pattern for a ear flap hat to make one for my youngest sister. While it seems like a good pattern, I ended up not using it and making it up as I go along. It uses the bottom up technique, but I prefer the top down method. After all, I could try on the hat as it grew so I could find out if it would fit correctly.

I can't help it, I love snowflakes. (Obviously, I don't live in the midwest) Here's a snowflake ornament

And if it's cold where you are, here's a pattern for a pair of chunky mittens and scarf set

Since we are getting close to the finish line, here's some quick patterns to do. Remember, you could always make 1 panel of a mile-a-minute as a scarf.

You know the drill - no payola was given to me for making these links available. If somebody wants to pay me off in yarn, I'd be happy to accept it;)
