I can't believe I actually got my gifts finished this year for Christmas. SERIOUSLY. I'm sure I've said that every year, but I was actually finishing the gift for my fiance Christmas morning... while everyone else opened presents. I really enjoyed seeing everyone's reactions without distraction, though! It was a wonderful Christmas. =) I broke down and bought gifts for my mom and dad (slight fail =/), but everyone else's were made. Here's the breakdown:
1 lace knit scarf in Vanna's Choice blue (GORGEOUS and I made it a button-front scarf, a style I adore)
1 pink knit slouchy hat (in a pattern I put together of various elements I enjoy from other hats)
1 crocheted throw (present for sister and brother-in-law -- the source of my near-crippled finger joints =P)
1 granny square crocheted stocking (classic, square toes and all)
1 knit tea cozy (in a pattern I created! Woo! An original made the cut!)
I wish I had pictures of them all to post! I really should get on that... I was so pleased with the turn-out though.
I gave my hands a short break and am starting on my mom's birthday gifts. I've already had to rip out and backtrack, so I'm thinking it'll be a pretty good one. =P Happy New Year, everyone!
