I’ve been busy working on Christmas gifts – and those recipients, as much as I love them, tend to nose around my blog posts & flickr page so I haven’t been able to show off what I’ve done. But my youngest nephew is a December baby and when I saw ran across a certain pattern, I had to make it for him.

That’s both of my nephews in the shot actually – birthday boy is 5, the other is 7.

It’s a new adorable pattern – the Deep Blue Sea Shark Mittens. My nephew is obsessed with sharks – he loves to tell me all about them & what they eat – in fact, we had an enjoyable Thanksgiving, watching the Mythbuster’s shark episode together.

They look so sad off of the hands though.

I used Swish Bulky in Squirrel Heather for the body & a double strand of some Wool of the Andes I had laying around for the mouth & teeth.

My nephew was so delighted & I got them to him just in time – it’s painfully cold out there!

How is everyone else’s holiday knitting going? <
