This weekend was also a chance for my sisters and I to catch up and share projects - we live in three different cities.
I thought I would share this project, my middle sister, the knitter, gave as a gift to the kids this weekend. If you have the skill set, it would make a wonderful Christmas gift for a little boy or a little girl.
My sister recently celebrated a birthday so I shipped her a copy of the Purl Bee's new book, More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts (no ulterior motive of course!). She made two gorgeous gnome hats and is finishing a third. Each hat takes about an hour. Miss Lily would not take this hat off the entire weekend. The wool is part cashmere and is very comfy.

Update: By total and complete coincidence, after I had written this post and I was just catching up on my reader, I saw that Michelle at WeeFolks has offered a pattern on her blog for a gorgeous pixie hat. You will see how the type of yarn you use can give the project an entirely different look.
[If you are sewer, you can still make a gnome hat. Amy Karol has a pattern in her book, Bend-the-Rules Sewing, I posted about it here.]
Thanks for stopping by!
