FOs -- Yorick and mittens and clogs, oh my
I've been knitting like crazy this week, trying to finish up all of my Christmas presents! And December birthday presents!

First, a scarf in KP Suri Dream...I liked the pattern in the new catalog but they don't offer instant download, so I had to wing it. I used the Petite Bell Ruffle instrictions from Knitting on the Edge, did a little more decreasing and knit the scarf in stockinette with a garter edge.

Then...Yorick!!! This pattern rocks!! In natural WOTA. pre felting:

And post-felting:

I've been working on mittens for DD for a while...I just wasn't enjoying them though, so they took forever to finish. They go almost to her elbows...snow mittens, in KP Merino Style:

Clogs for my friend's twins, plus the bitty clog:

Hat with leftover malabrigo wool:

And finally, something that I didn't knit, but my mom did:

She hates colorwork, but has somehow managed to survive knitting FOUR of these hats. :roflhard: You should see the inside...a true labor lof love, weaving all those ends! :shock:

Wow! Everything is wonderful! Tell your mom that the hat is fantastic--she's a brave woman!

Wow, Julie - Fantastic stuff! I love the pink hat - it looks so soft and yummy. :cheering:

But what really stands out is the Yorick... LOVE IT!! :inlove: :heart: :inlove: How does it feel now that it's felted? Is it soft or scratchy? (i've never felted anything before)

Thanks! :D Yorick is slightly scratchy...if I had used the yarn the pattern called for (Classic Elite Lush) it wouldn't be...but I used WOTA, which isn't horribly irritating, but I wouldn't give it to someone who was sensitive to wool.

I don't even konw where to start...everything you made is so cool. I do like that Yorrik scarf though...very fun!

Your mom must be very patient. I don't know how she was able to get through 4 of those hats!

Yeah...she was all, "It only took me an hour to weave in the ends!!" :shock: :shock: :shock:
