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. You should see the inside...a true labor lof love, weaving all those ends!
