I don't know why it always takes me so long to post these, but here are some of the things I made at Christmas.
The socks are my first ever attempt at doing two at a time on two circs. It took awhile to wrap my brain around this, but I love this method, no more SSS! The pattern is from More Sensational Knitted Socks (http://www.amazon.com/Sensational-Knitted-Socks-Charlene-Schurch/dp/1564777170/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1233509749&sr=8-1) by Charlene Schurch and it's the Embossed Moss Stitch. It's kind of hard to see the pattern with the yarn I used, which was Regia 4 fadig color. I was very happy with how they turned out and my friend was very excited to recieve them, she's been waiting awhile for a pair of socks from me.

The same friend also got a hat and scarf from me. The hat pattern is from here (http://jan-knitfreepatterns.blogspot.com/2007/03/sisters-hat.html) and the scarf from here (http://www.twinwillowsfarm.com/lacy_v_scarf.html). They were made from yarn in my stash, JoAnn's Sensations Bellezza Collection, Cosetta Dark Multi.

My preschoolers got mini stockings (http://littlecottonrabbits.typepad.co.uk/free_knitting_patterns/2007/06/knitted_mini_ch.html)as their pressies. I used Cascade 220 (the red and green yarn) and the white yarn was Patons Classic Merino. I had lots of fun making these!

My sil's 94 year old grandfather got this hat (http://www.yarnsmackdown.com/ww2watchcap.html) made from more stash yarn, Unger Utopia, I think.

Your friend is one lucky person to receive such beautiful, caring gifts. I hate making socks, so I just love it when my good friend knits a new pair for me. She has made me three pair so far and I love them all.

Beautiful job on everything!!! Don't you just love being able to go into your stash and produce such beautiful gifts? That's how I justify buying more yarn when it's on sale. :D

The socks, hat and scarf for your friend are nice. Are they all the same color, and it is just a camera thing? Lovely gift.

It looks like you had a ball making the stockings, one creative thought led to another creative thought. :-) Are you a preschool teacher?

Nice hat for Grandpa. I see so many older folks who don't seem to wear a nice warm hat, and I worry about them. He'll have warm ears.

The hat and scarf are the same color. Yep, I'm a preschool teacher!
