Christmas FOs: Baby Converse & Balaclava
Here they are! Batteries croaked on the camera so it took me a while to get these uploaded. Just wanted to share a couple of the knitted gifts I gave this year for Christmas presents.

The Baby Converse were for my soon-to-be-nephew.

The Balaclava was for my Dad to use when he goes hunting. I should have made it longer but he's got a scarf that he uses around his neck so hopefully this will work well enough for him.

THANKS TO KNITTINGHELP.COM for ALL YOUR HELP. Without all of you, I'd NEVER have gotten these done. Both items were the result of MANY firsts in knitting for me. Thank you all for helping me make these gifts.

The sneaks are cute, and is that a big smile I see under the balaclava? Good job, making people happy while you get to knit.

Thanks y'all! I am proud of how they turned out. Dad's balaclava got "Cool" responses and the baby booties got "OMG" responses!

There is a slightly different version that can be found on Ravelry but this is the one that "they" claim looks a little more like Chuck T's.
