01/17/08: Old Stuff I Could Not Show EarlierWell I had a banner year for knitted gifts this past Christmas. I nearly finished everything I set out to do, which included:
6 pairs of socks
2 Christmas Stockings
7 or so washcloths
See below for what was not yet posted here:
Chevron Scarf for Cranky Monkey (if you read her she already posted about this :)
Garden Scarf for my Grandmother (started when I posted the pattern, but only actually finished it in December :)
Gingerbread and Tree Washcloths/Dishcloths for Friends
What is not quite finished are 2 socks. I am to or past the heel on both though and the recipients each got one complete sock on Christmas day so I was so close, but then I was all burnt out and have not wrapped those up yet, oops!
Sock 1 for my Brother
Sock 1 for my Father
I also made my own ornaments as you saw before, but what you did not see was that I again made some magnets. Well lots of magnets and more complicated than last years I must say. Good thing I had sibbling help :) I was very into gingerbread anything this past season. I even made a nice gingerbread tree decorated with mini m&ms. I have to get the photo from my sister so I can show you all that one.
Besides that I have been slowly picking up the needles again so there will be more to come as usual.
The Garden Scarf is just lovely. May have to make one myself! And the magnets are adorable!
