stacks of blue merino

I was busy before Christmas making gifts. Because I didn’t want to spoil anyone’s surprise I couldn’t share with you all the makings. But now I can.

These were hats and necks warmers I made for the kids of my oldest cousin MJ who lives in Madrid. They have had an unusual cold winter there this year and I thought this would come in handy.

For the hat I used this pattern from Drops with a few alterations.

The neck warmer pattern was inspired by Jennifers Neighborly. I love to knit from top to bottom. I don't know why but for some reason it is more fun. I'll share the neck warmer pattern in a later post.

Edited: Ravelry link here


  1. These are lovely. The design and color.

  2. These are a lovely colour!

    The Audrey Nifenegger (sorry can't spell that one) is called Her Fearful Symmetry - set in London and Highgate Cemetery.

  10. oooh merino ! I can imagine how soft to the touch all these are ! and this blue is gorgeous !

    I can't seem to follow a knitting pattern (unfortunately) but I have to go and "friend" you on Ravelry !

  11. I don't think I've ever seen a neck warmer. Love the idea and these look perfectly crafted. Beautiful gifts.
