It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...
Since the stitch pattern is called Roman Stripes, here he is trying out his Roman Centurion look.
This scarf is a very simple pattern from Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns.

We dug the purty fake tree out of the shed and Girly decided to give decorating a go. Right proud of herself too.
Tacky enough for the contest Cecily? Consider the dog ball, cabbage patch doll shoes (with socks tucked inside) and the pen carefully placed in the branches. All Girly's work.
God love 'er! I don't think they are going to stay though. Well, maybe the doll shoes or the pen. Just for kicks. The dog already took his ball off though.
The Mr. had some Christmas fun too. You know how he was thinking of placing them don't you.
I finished off a few projects too. A headband/ear warmer to match the scarf I just finished. I still have a little of the Ovation left! I may try to get a little wrist warmer from what's left. After all the Christmas knitting is done though.
