What I Knit for Christmas

January 3, 2008

WARNING Heavy Photo Content

I never posted posted photos of all the knitting I did for Christmas. I didn’t want the recipients to see them before they received them. So now that the holidays are over here is, here are the photos.

My mom got this

Pattern – Comfort Shawl (Knitting Daily)
Yarn – Plymouth Galway Color #26
Needles- Size 11 circulars

The kids got these. The color is more accurate in the close up views.




Patterns – Scarf and gloves my own. Beanie and Beret from Charmed Knits
Yarn – Caron Simply Soft – Autumn Red, Lemonade, Lt. Country blue and Grey heather
Needles – Size 6, 7 circulars

My brother, brothers-in-law, and nephew got these

Pattern- Irish Hiking Scarf
Yarn – Red Heart Classic Brown, Royal Blue, Tan

My Other Brother-in-law got these plus a matching hat that didn’t get photographed. My nephew got a matching pair of gloves and my husband’s great nephew got a matching hat but they were all camera shy. The color is a little wonky

My husband’s aunt got these

My niece got this

Needles – Size 7

My husband’s niece got this

Pattern – Bespoke pillow from Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2007
Yarn – Red Heart Classic don’t remember the colors but they match her college colors.

I am still finishing up a scarf for my dearest friend Rose and one for my hubby. His had to make a mid-knitting pattern change to accommodate the yarn. Those photos should be posted by the weekend.

The final photo isn’t a gift for someone else. It was a gift for me.

I received this from Melanie, my Tea and Thee Swap partner on Christian Artisans. Melanie gave me the gift of spinning. She gave me all the tools to learn how to spin. Won’t it be totally cool to knit yarn that I actually spun!! And isn’t that a lovely stocking that she knitted. The cables are exquisite and the yarn is very soft. The other goodies were fun too. Melanie was a fun secret pal and I am looking forward to getting to know her better now that she isn’t a secret.

Okay, I am through posting photos for a while. Please excuse the lack of actual photography skills. The knitting is much better.
