So, yes...I've been working on these all since Thanksgiving week, Christmas presents for my family. Figured I'd jump in and show you guys my work so far!

A scarf and hat for my niece, Jalisa. :

A scarf for one of my best friends, it's so thick and warm, I think she'll love it.:

A scarf for my grandmother(hat is currently on my circlular needles). I absolutely LOVE this yarn, though it's a pain to knit with. It's so soft and fluffy and fuzzy, I went and bought myself two skeins for a project for myself after I'm done with Christmas presents!:

And this is one of the panels of the snowman grid I made yesterday to try my hand at knitting designs. My mom loves snowmen, so this is one of the panels going on her chain scarf...and not to sound egotistical, but I think it turned out pretty good for my first time. :D :

Thank you all so very much! My confidence has soared, and now I can't wait to do more knitted designs(which I have MANY in mind now :D).

I started chaining the scarf tonight, and have three chained together so far. The grey part is in regular garter stitch, the white in moss stitch, and I'm going to stick to the boardered stockinette for the plain blue panels. I have one more snowman to do, and maybe I'll re-do the grid and post it up for you guys. ;)

I think he needs a name. :)

kayeknit: I'm really proud of the pink and purple set myself. My niece is almost five, so I think it'll look really cute on her. :)

KellyK: Calvin! :D That's a good one! Here I was thinking something generic along the lines of Fred the Snowman. :lol:

kemp: Thanks! Yeah, I can't wait to give it to her. It's become a tradition to give her a snowman every year for Christmas, but this is the first time I've actually MADE the snowman. :D

Such cute products. Your needles must be flying! Better be careful or they might explode! :roflhard:

:roflhard: The sad part is that I have been knitting really fast, so every so often my brain goes to thinking "I wonder if that thing was real..." so I have to force myself to get back to the speed I was working with until it hits again "What if it was real?". :roflhard:
