Back in January
I mentioned that I was still working on two more gifts for the family. I actually completed them a couple of weeks ago, but they’ve finally arrived at their destinations, so I won’t spoil the surprise by posting them now.
First, a scarf for my brother. This is the Seed Stitch Scarf pattern from the Holiday 2006 issue of KnitSimple magazine. The yarn is Cascade Pastaza Paints. This was so late that I wrote a note that maybe he could use it next winter, but then I guess a big blizzard hit over the weekend. Yeah, I planned it that way.
The last "Christmas" knitted gift is for my mother. It’s another hat, again from the Three Tams pattern on Knitty
. The yarns are Cascade 220 and Noro Silk Garden. My mom likes red, so I picked out the red first then tried to find a Silk Garden colorway that would work. (Actually, all of the family christmas gifts have a red theme, if you haven’t noticed!)
Merry Christmas, fam!
