Christmas Gifts 2008


From Left to Right: Reversible Cabled Brioche Neckwarmer, Ice Queen from Knitty, Ice scraper mitt from One Skein Wonders, Attack of the Killer Pompom hat by Marnie Mclean, Picot Gloves, and Dayflower Scarf.

Not pictured is the little bear ornament I gave to my Mom and some Plum Blossom mittens that went to my sister without pictures. I did the garter stitch version of ice queen and I really liked it. Some day I'll make myself a beaded one. The ice scraper mitt went to my dad. It was in his stocking with some beer and I think it may have turned into a beer cozy :) For the hat I did some extra rounds of light grey to conserve blue yarn for the pompom and I added another two rounds of colorwork. Next time I won't do the extra rounds. It is soft and warm and she loved the set. The picot gloves were done in some Regia 4ply tweed on US1 DPNS. I love them. They are really cute but simple and warm. The dayflower scarf may just be my favorite and man was it hard to give that away. It was done in Rowan Kidsilk Haze on US3 needles. I think it is about 36" long and I made two halves and grafted them together. I didn't have enough left to make myself a scarf but it is definitely something I want to get around to. I do have one more gift to make, a cowl for my aunt but she is traveling and won't be back for awhile. Oh yeah, and my husband's vest...maybe I should get back to that so he can wear it this winter.
