I ended up knitting 9 hats and three scarves. Here are a few pics taken at our family's gathering at Mom's house.
Here are the little kids wearing their alligator scarves:
They look great, I bet they all loved them.
Thanks. As soon as I finished one, I started another. Also made two for me and one for a friend. It is an easy pattern that is also easy to modify. You can find it on Ravelry. The pattern is called "short-row wavy hat."
Well done Rick, the hats and scarves look great.
Have a wonderful new years party, sorry I will miss it... but will catch up with you at the end of the week. I arrive home Saturday, so might pop by Sunday if I'm organised...
