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!

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

But what really stands out is the Yorick... LOVE IT!! 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!
