small style :: bearded balaclavas

i knit these little balaclavas with beards and mustaches for my friend tahirih's little boys in exchange for one of her gorgeous prints {this one to be exact}.

seriously, could they be any more adorable. i die.

normally i would link up the pattern except the pattern i tried to use was simply awful and i would not put you through that, friends. no good. so i kinda just winged it and did my own thing and it was smooth stitching from there. perhaps i will put together a little bearded balaclava tutorial and post it here for you all. after the holidays, of course.
i am linking these cuties up with morgan's small style post! go check it out!

eep.. too fantastic! Great knit-work mama - always thought this idea was a hoot, but wondered how kids actually liked having it on their faces? Handsome lumberjacks for sure here! ;o)
