Here's pics of all the goodies I made for my mom:

I knit up a bobble dishcloth:

and then to use up the rest of the Sugar'n'Cream knit up a chinese waves mini-cloth

I know the colors look different...but they're the same.

I also knit her a Bambozelle basket (from Knitty)

I put them together like so!

But I'm not done yet!
earthchick very kindly sent me a ball of Malabrigo for winning the drawing on her blog-versary and so, in the spirit in which I received the yarn I knit up a super comfy hat to give away (to mom!)

The picture quality is not great, but the cables showed up beautifully. And it's a really nice looking hat when it's not on a lumpy pillow! :teehee:
The pattern is Coronet, also from Knitty.

And FINALLY! (phew) my mom requested a shawl for when she goes on a cruise, so I'm knitting up EunnyJang's Print O' the Wave stole in this yarn:

Can you read the fiber content on that sucker? Cuz it's 70% baby alpaca, 20% silk, and 10% cashmere. It's luscioussssss to knit with. Mmmm... (and expensive!, but momma deserves it)

Thanks for looking!
