I know I'm a little late but I had a number of other New Years Reservations that I needed to make good on first before I could come back and say hi. And don't you get upset that I neglected you over the holidays. You should know by now that you shouldn't poke the knitter between September and December. We're prone to hand cramps, lack of sleep, small stab wounds and the such. And while most of these happened, I'm happy to say (and kind of brag, just a wee bit) that I was actually finished my Christmas knitting early. As in before Christmas. As in before December! Boo-yeah!
I made my step-mom the My Wish shawl by Laura Linneman. And here's the sneak peek I gave her. I forgot to take pictures. Oops.
Then there's my mom's gift of holy crap awesomeness! I spun some Gnome Acres Superwash Merino/Bamboo/Nylon roving in the Roller Derby Diva Colourway and made it into the Comfort Cowl.
I'm really happy with how this turned out. It's a two ply yarn that felt like it took forever but was totally worth it.
The mini fox is on the left and is made from fingering weight yarn and Mr. Fox is on the right and made from Cascade 128 which is a bulky yarn.
