I don't know why it always takes me so long to post these, but here are some of the things I made at Christmas.
The socks are my first ever attempt at doing two at a time on two circs. It took awhile to wrap my brain around this, but I love this method, no more SSS! The pattern is from More Sensational Knitted Socks
by Charlene Schurch and it's the Embossed Moss Stitch. It's kind of hard to see the pattern with the yarn I used, which was Regia 4 fadig color. I was very happy with how they turned out and my friend was very excited to recieve them, she's been waiting awhile for a pair of socks from me.
The same friend also got a hat and scarf from me. The hat pattern is from here
and the scarf from here
. They were made from yarn in my stash, JoAnn's Sensations Bellezza Collection, Cosetta Dark Multi.
My preschoolers got mini stockings
as their pressies. I used Cascade 220 (the red and green yarn) and the white yarn was Patons Classic Merino. I had lots of fun making these!
My sil's 94 year old grandfather got this hat
made from more stash yarn, Unger Utopia, I think.
Phew! Thanks for looking!
