There were 3 gifts I DID finish on time though!
|Mom's a Ravenclaw, but her heart belongs to Gryffindor.|
Mom wanted a cowl that wasn't tight against her neck, but I know how cold she can get, so I made hers long enough to double up. It's a simple pattern I came up with on the fly, done in the round, knit 6 rows in the main color, purl 4 rows in the contrast color, repeat until your desired width, ending and binding off with the main color.
Dad works outside a LOT. Every day he has a project or two going on, so he wanted something snug.
|He's a hunter, so I went with a color that would match his camo.|
My mom's sister, who the kids call Gabby, is pretty trendy and loves the color purple almost as much as I do, so when I saw a skein of scrumptious purple Chenille yarn at the store, I had to get it. AND, it included this free pattern!
|She still hasn't sent me her picture, so she doesn't get to be immortalized on my blog for MILLIONS to see. Hah.|
I still have a giant bag of yarn waiting to be made into lovelies for family and friends, so I'm off to knit!!
What great things did you make as gifts?
