Christmas Knitting December 24, 2008

Here it is, Christmas eve.  Above is Quant from Knitty for our PTA secretary.  Yarn is Debbie Mumm for Jo-Ann “Traditions”, colorway Chocolate Raspberry, fiber content acrylic/wool/”other fiber” (kind of makes you wonder what their specification of ‘other’ is).  I modified the second tie according to a link I found on Ravelry.  If you’re really that interested, I can link to it later.

Marsan Watchcap for Craig, originally meant for his brother.  Yarn is my own handspun merino in blues and greens.  I was freaking out that my BIL wouldn’t like this hat, and Craig said don’t rip it, finish it, I like the way it feels.  He’s such a sweetie!


Bainbridge Scarf for Kev’s kindergarten teacher, being modeled by Kev himself.  Yarn is Filatura Di Crosa “Dusk” in colorway 6, used a smidge over one skein, fiber content cotton/acrylic/polyamide.  His teacher is allergic to wool, and this seemed to work out well.

Cowl’d and Frosty Morning cowl for Colt’s 3rd grade teacher.  Yarn is Plymouth Yarn “Expression”, fiber content wool and acrylic.  It’s really not quite as bright as it seems in the photo. 

Luckily enough, the two teacher gifts were given the day before the school shut down due to snow.  The cowl has been much appreciated in this snotty weather we’ve been having!

I have a few more things on the needles that will be late due to weather, or are non-Christmas specific.
