Let's talk handmade birthday & holiday gifts while I slowly digest over the next 364 days.
|Hitchhiker shawl knit from Noro Katsura for my mom. Mom loves Noro and I love garter stitch.|
|Lichen kerchief knit from linen for my kerchief-loving knit friend.|
|I gave several handmade gifts that I can't take full credit for, but I do get half-credit! I dyed yarn for most of the projects, and did much of the finishing work for the scarves above and on the cute jacket below.|
|Kara, who writes the monthly Finished Object posts for me, wanted slipper socks. That works for me. I had been dying to try out the Tin Can Knits Rye pattern.|
|And finally, the dog nieces needed something warm. All 4 pictures of these little monsters are blurry because the dog nieces are furry, adorable perpetual motion machines|
