New WIPs for a New Year

I have lots of exciting new projects planned for January - I'm waiting on yarn to knit a Force Awakens hat for Tyler, though I have plenty to keep me busy til it arrives. Over the weekend, I finished my Dad's hat and started my Mom's cowl using the yarn I gifted her for Christmas from Nerd Girl Yarns and a free pattern by Jen Lucas. And yes, I watched the DVD while working on this project!
I also started my final holiday decoration, a crocheted snowman for our front door, which will probably be finished just in time to pack everything away for next year. So far, I just have the top hat completed:
I'm still working on the Xanadu Snowflake Cowl, too - man, I didn't think this would be such a slow project for me, but that teeny tiny yarn is a killer! Thankfully, it's buttery soft and delightful to work with, and I am finally starting to get the hang of the chart so there is less ripping back when I miscount something (and I don't want to jinx myself, but it does seem to be coming along faster now). I'm about halfway through the third repeat, which means that I am nearly one third of the way through, so that is also good news!
Hope your new year is off to a great start!
