Sorry ! Lots of FOs and I finally took pictures of them.

Here's my first attempt at fair isle. 2 hats for my DSister and her wife (for now and hopefully it'll stay that way :) ) I used this pattern with patons bulky

And here's a couple of Republic hats. I used Moda Dea Tweedle Dee yarn in Sahara and Surf and Turf colorways. I found the pattern on Ravelry. I made the blue one (surf and turf) for my DSon's GF and the brown one (Sahara) for my DD.

Here is a baby papoose I made for a friend. I'm making another one for her as well as she is having twins. I just CO 4 and increased to a point and then knit in stockinette for a few inches and joined. Then I knit in the round for a few more inches and began decreasing and added some icord ties. I thought the open design would make it easier to get the baby in and out of the papoose :)

I made this Tudora for a friend who is in love with anything British :) I used Joann's yarn. I am not sure what the name is but it is sooo soft.

Wow, what great gifts! You've been very busy. I love the hats, and your Tudora looks great. I made one for my niece, and hope to have time to make another before Christmas.

I'm sorry - I forgot the link to the pattern. Tudora is just the name of a neck warmer pattern on Knitty.com Here's the link:

Lovely hats! The button on the one for your son's GF is great. Where do folks get such pretty buttons? The baby thingie is neat, and your Tudora is nice too. Good job on the clothes as well.

That button is a ceramic button I bought at a LYS. I didn't intend to make any purchases that day and only stopped in to see what they had. The sales lady laid on the pressure though and I wound up walking out with 2 hanks of cotton yarn and a set of 2 of those buttons. That's the problem with me - those high pressure sales tactics really work on me :roflhard: I'm glad I got a chance to use them. I do they are very pretty and unique. I never went back to that LYS after that experience though.
