Christmas Gifts Unveiled

I haven't posted recently not due to a lack of excitement but mostly in an effort not to give away any Christmas presents. But now that a few have been distributed I can share a little.

This is the snowball hat from the fall Interweave Knits. Here it is in Misti Alpaca, Lake Blue and I knit this on #10 needles.

This here is my second baby sweater
which is for my husband's cousin's baby. Stella was born over the summer right around when we were getting back from Africa and it has taken me until now to complete the project but it is making a nice Christmas present. I think this worked out for the best anyway because they live in Los Angeles and Stella was born in July so I am not sure a sweater would have done much good then anyway.

I will update this tomorrow to say what the pattern and yarn was but tonight I am already in bed typing on my laptop and I can't be bothered to go find all of that at this point.

These are those fingerless gloves from Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick that I love. I made them for a new friend of mine that wanted a pair of gloves that she could wear to play the guitar while caroling. It was a little stressful (as always) to make something for someone that you can't constantly try them on to make sure they are fitting but she swears that they fit perfectly and it is always nice to make something for someone like her that fully appreciates the time and love that goes into the knitted item. As before this is Inca Alpaca
