Christmas Finale, finally!!!

Christmas Finale!
pictured: Booga Bag; Multi-Directional Scarf; Hat; 3 No-Sew Fleece Pillows

Booga Bag:
Kureyon, Color 134.
First Felted Project and I'm quite proud!
(you can see it pre-felted here)
Hope my sister enjoys this!

The hat is knit with one strand of Wool in the Woods Southern Rose, colorway: Poppy Patch, and one strand of Cascade 220 in a complimentary purple, whose band has been lost so I can't give you the color! :) I can't remember where I got the pattern, but I modified it a bit anyway - Cast on 88, K2P2 cuff, stockinette body, typical k2tog decreases for the crown.
I ran out of the Poppy for the last two rows and double stranded the purple, but you can barely notice (see close-ups previously posted)

Multi-Directional Scarf
Single strand of Wool in the Woods Southern Rose, colorway: Poppy Patch

My scarf came out a bit different from the other's I've seen. I have points at both ends. Guess I missed a step somewhere. But I think it's pretty darn cute anyway.

The Pillows are two 31" squares of complimentary fleece, wrong sides facing (if you can figure out the wrong side!) with a five inch square cut out of each corner and strips 3/4" wide cut five inches deep on each side. Two strips, one of each color, are tied together with an overhand knot. Tie together three sides, insert 20" pillow form, then tie up side #4. Voilá! Floor pillows for the Nintendo/X-Box/PS-2 crowd! :)

Now I can start on 2007!!!!!!

I like that hat a lot. I think I am going to have to attempt that one. Something about the brim that just strikes my fancy!
