Red Riding Hood

Christmas has come and gone, and I spent yesterday removing all Christmas decorations from my house. I felt a little like a scrooge, but it had to be done as part of my New Year cleaning extravaganza. I've taken this entire week off work, which is frankly about the best Christmas gift I could have given myself.

Here's one final Christmas knit, that didn't get done quite in time. It's a little red riding hood cape for my nieces' American Girl dolls.

AG Red Cape 01

I'll deliver them later this week.

The specifics:

Pattern: Kit's Christmas Cape (a free Ravelry download)
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease (just less than one ball for each cape)
Needles: US 8

I highly recommend this pattern if you are knitting for American Girl dolls. Clear instructions, easy knitting, and it produces a nice little cape with a perfect shape.

So nice, I knit it twice.

I have more Christmas recaps and adventures to blog. I'm hoping I have plenty of time this week...
