I wanted to call by to show you some of the gifts I made this year and a very special handmade thing I received too. It has just dawned on me that I forgot to take pictures of some of the gifts I made but never mind - here are the ones that got photographed:
Both my men like their cowls but the weather right now is so mild they don't really need to wear them. I'm hoping the yarn isn't too itchy for either of them, I've yet to do the blocking and that might soften them up.
I didn't use a pattern for these, I cast on 60 stitches (she has narrow feet) using 2.25mm dpns and knit a 2x1 rib. Then I made the cuff 6" in stocking stitch and did a Fish Lips Kiss heel (funny name but super easy pattern)
And look what the lovely Sandra gifted me! I am so touched that she made me this gorgeous shawl, which is a new design by her (at the time of publishing this post it's still to be released, but coming soon I think!)
It's so soft and pretty, with a lovely drape. I think the yarn is Regia Angora Merino, it's fabulous anyway! I wore this all day on Christmas day with my favourite shawl pin and loved it.
Thank you my dear for such a special present ❦
'till next time...
