Christmas Gifts are Done!

December 29, 2006

Well  said I would try to get some knitting gifts posted and here they are, along with the people who got them.  I am a terrible picture taker and I think I only got one good one.

Bro5 Minnesota Winter Hat   Here is the hat I knit for Bro5.  I followed a free pattern from the web but knit it in the round instead of flat and seeming.  Mostly because I suck at seeming.

 Mom’s Shawl click for a bigger picture   Bro4’s Sock’s                                         

The other 2 gifts I was able to get pictures of were just my family being goofy.  On top is my mom with her Mystery Stole 2006.  You can’t tell from the picture but this sucker was loooong.  Almost twice as long as my mom is tall.  On the bottom in Bro4.  (Ladies he’s young and single)  I made him the Gentleman’s Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks.  I mostly followed the pattern except I did them toe-up with a short-row toe and heel.  You can’t really see, but they turned out really awsome.  And they fit really, really well.

 Well I’ll be seeing more family in Jan. and I hope to get some more pics.  Right now I’m going to get back to finishing the socks I’ve been working on for me.  I’m trying to get them done before the Socktopia 2007 KAL starts on Sun.
