Some Christmas Crafting

Here's my brand new great-nephew, Aiden, wearing the hat I knit for him. 
I knit a few more hats for Christmas gifts. I enjoyed this pattern I knit up in Vanna's Choice in linen,

 and again in Red Heart Sparkle yarn. I love the decrease pattern on top.
 Then I knit this easy 2x3 rib in Wool-Ease and again with a blue border.
Okay, these were not Christmas projects but I did want to share them with you.
 I love the embroidery vining along the rick-rack on this pink kitten pincushion. I don't really plan these out, just see what works as I go along.
 I brought these pincushions along to my last craft fair and sold this Scottie Dog cutie.
 I participated in Sue's (It's a Very Cherry World) Christmas tag swap. This is the tag front, (sorry about the shadows)
 and the tag back. My partner likes Shabby Chic style, so that was what I was going for.
 I also made this pink Christmas Button Fairy as a surprise for my swap partner's daughter.
And I added in some vintage image gift tags. I hope one day that this swap package actually arrives to it's destination in Mexico. Neither my swap package or my partner's package have been received.  :-( 
I've already joined one Valentine swap, so there'll be more crafting soon.

Your little grandson is so cute! I really like the hats, they are very pretty. And the pin cushions are very charming! I had fun with the tag swap as well. You have great pictures that you shared here.
Thanks for sharing.

OH, he is darling! And he looks so snug and warm with the cap you made for him.
Those are super cute pincushions!
