This is a gift I made for a co-worker. Pattern is Annis, by Susanna IC (free on Ravelry), yarn is laceweight alpaca.


I modified the pattern to swap out the nupps for beads. I hate nupps, and the beads add a nice weight to the edges.

Emergency Mohair

I thought I would spend all week making this feather-and-fan scarf for my MIL. Instead, it took only a few hours, mostly in the car on the way to CT for the holidays. Good thing I brought extra projects along!! Yarn is JJ's Mohair.

Colorwork Earwarmer

I made this as a holiday gift option, although it is more likely an excuse to play some more with stranded knitting :)

Waiting for Santa?

I'll be taking pictures of the last-minute projects, but probably won't post again until after the holidays. In the meantime, I'll leave you with this peaceful image of our sweet brown doggie under the tree.

Non-Holiday Knitting

Strangely out of sequence is a pair of non-holiday knitting socks that I started back in October. Pattern is Globe Trotter Socks by Jodi St. Clair (free on Ravelry), yarn is Crazy Zauberball.

One Ring to Rule Them All

I'm taking it on faith that this says something to that extent, and not "Foolish LOTR Poser" :) This will be for my brother for Xmas. The pattern is by Susanne Scheel, with my own adaptations to the brim and crown.

Finally Finishing

Kylie is posing with the finished pillows that will soon be on their way to the Midwest for Xmas. There was blocking and sewing involved - which are nowhere near as fun as the knitting! (Pattern is October Fair Isle Pillow, by Kate Jackson Knits.)

Xmas Colorwork Frenzy

I have been doing all knitting and very little finishing these past few days!!
