Here's a Story...

Well! The holidays are over. I'm a little slow getting back into the routine, but it's hard to come back to reality after such a long vacation. Christmas Gift Knitting this year was a big hit! I managed to take a series of photos of the WIP/FOs before I left for the East Coast.
Christmas Knits 2008!
Quite Brady-esque, dontcha think?
As you can see from the mosaic, I got quite a lot done before leaving on a jet plane, but I still had plenty to finish. There was still 80% of a hat (on US3 needles *eep*), 1 Fetching mitt, and a full pair of man mittens to knit. Not to mention the earrings I wanted to add to the cowl gifts. So did I get everything finished in time??? Oh! the suspense...
Gifted Knits 2008!
Yay! Happy, warm people all around!
I did it!!! I managed to finish everything. PHEW! I've gotta cut back on my gift recipients next year, or start even earlier. It was so fun to see everyone enjoy their gifts! It was really hard this year because I really wanted to keep the majority of the things I knit. The navy/yellow/purple hat for my sister, the squooshy oatmeal hat for brother-in-law, the Fetching mitts, the earrings! It's very satisfying to share my work though. I might even be able to whip up a pattern for the nautical hat I made my sister. It'll be more like a recipe than a pattern though... We'll see.

I have lots more photos to share from my vacation. I'll post more later after I have the energy to process them.

Ok, now back to selfish knitting... Lady Eleanor, here I come!

Wow! You sure accomplished a lot. I love that you have photos of all of the recipients. Are the earrings knitted too?

You did so awesome! What hat pattern is that for the grey one? That's exactly the kind of hat I've wanted, tell me it was the size 3 needle one ;D

The first mosaic reminds me of photo booth pictures. :) Congratulations on finishing all the gifts, and happy Lady Eleanor knitting!

I really like those earrings that you made. They're so delicate!
