New Year presents - NOW MODELLED+HEDGEHOG :)
OK, so we don't do Christmas. We're Jewish, no big deal . But, in Russia we and every other person had a huge thing about New Year. Ya know, the communists canceled religion and God, so that's the only thing they left for the people to celebrate,with the tree and the "Grandpa Frost". That's the time we give presents and sit around the table and eat and drink and generally have a wonderful time. In Israel it's not much of a popular thing, but we're still doing it. So, I'm proud to present the labors of the past month, the presents for my family (me and hubby decided on "no presents this year" policy, so there's nothing for him).
A headband from here done with some acrylics in double moss stitch and a matching little scarf, which has a button hole and will be getting a button too, to be closed on the neck. It's for my Mom.



and the scarf:


Next is my dad's ski hat in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran and some white acrylics on 4.00mm needles. The pattern is here. They don't provide with the chart, so i took some from them and some from me and built a chart myself. My dad is not going to ski, but he loves that style.And you can also see a bit of my cat .


The Silver's Palindrome scarf for MIL in the same Cashmerino on 4.00 mm needles, which I already showed you before, but now I had it blocked, which definitely helped I'm not the best blocker though


My FIL Fetching, also in the same Cashmerino on 4.00mm needles, matching MIL's scarf. He has huge hands, so I made them bigger by adding 6 more rows before the thumb and 6 more after.


And finally, still needs to be seamed at the sleeves, a shrug for my sister, the pattern is from here.It was knit from Malabrigo in Little Lovely colorway, on 7.00mm needles to get the correct gauge. The fluffy part is FF Filati Over in Cherise. I added the fluff on the cuffs and two rows on the neck.


and the cuff:


Thanks for watching Oh, and the hairs are from my dog, he he...

Everything looks fabulous, Nat! I think celebrating New Years instead is just fine. How long did you live in Russia?

I'm not sure if you can post the actual photos from Flikr or not..some sites you can and some you can't.

Okay, you CAN post photos. On the lower right of the page it says "different sizes"..click that and then scroll down and grab the PHOTO URL. Then post here as usual by clicking the image icon.

The New Year tradition sounds great to me. You did a great job on all of your gifts but I especially love the hat. Have fun!

Nat, (Natalie?) I love everything you made, especially since it's all in red, my favorite color! You do good work!

Thanks for explaining how you came to live in Israel. My husband and I hope to visit in 2008, if health problems allow. It's been a dream of many years for us.
