Round'um Up!

Now even though Southern California isn't known for cold weather, a girl can still get chilly. So this being the case, I grabbed the Malabrigo and..........
That's right ladies & germs. I give you two, Two neck warmers from a single skein. How's that for stretching your dollar. Here you can see the first one I knit for my niece Ashley for Christmas. And this is version 2. (I will be hanging onto this one)

Christmas & New Years celebrations have come and gone....but here at chez Sherlock, we are still partying it up. Our family has 3 birthdays this month, so we decided to smoosh them together this year. First up is my great-niece Neveah. Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
basic garter stitch cap w/pompom for extra cuteness. Used pink & cream yarn from my stash...add adorable baby for full effect....ain't she beautiful??? Next is my niece Alexis, who is also Neveah's Auntie. Happy Birthday to you too, Chickee!
Alexis loved all her cousins mitts so much and now she has her own....Stulpen mitts. Does this girl now how to play to the camera or what?
Lastly is yet another niece, Analiese. Happy Birthday gorgeous! She loves Jack, just like her favorite Auntie.

Analiese is wearing an "unoriginal" cap in hard to photograph, but who cares when the model is this cute, right?All three birthday girls together. Analiese turned 14, Neveah turned 2 and Alexis turned 23. Happy, Happy Birthday Girls!!!! We love you all! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

Guess I'll wrap this post up with some quick knits. Coffee sleeves are such a great way to use up those little balls of yarn in your stash. This one is knit with sock yarn, holding two strands together.
Cotton yarn was used for this one. The possibilities are endless.
Cozy in action. Cuppa Joe anyone?

And that little one is so adorable. Actually, all of them are.
