Post holiday wrap up

I hope everyone had a great holiday! Now that Christmas is over I can finally post some pictures of the things I made for Christmas gifts.
It was a cowl and hat heavy Christmas this year! You can pass up a present that can be knit in one night!!

I made some more of my Cha Cha Cowls and Neck Cuffs:

Christmas gifts

My favorite (and the only one I kept) is this neck cuff I made from handspun. It's a Loop batt made mostly of agnora and oh so soft!

I made both of my dads Turn a Square hats:

I also sent my sister in law an outfit for her baby to be but I just realized I forgot to take picture of it!! Joanie if you are reading this - please take a picture!

It was nice to finally be able to get back to knitting for me this week! I started a pair of Fiddlehead mittens with some Shelridge Farm yarns.... I am loving it so far!

I love the Cowls. I must make one of those. My neck always gets cold. Your dad looks great in his hat. Happy New Year!!!

Great gifts! Love the hats especially. The cowls are awesome but I'm into small stripes lately.

You've been busy! I was just thinking to myself that I needed to get started on the Fiddlehead mittens, and you beat me to it!
