I feel it is my "knitterly duty" (to offer) to knit my family gifts for the holidays. I would not be heartbroken if they said now. This year everyone said yes.
Her boyfriend got a striped hat, a new version of my Flap Happy Hat that I am testing out.
Yarn: Cascade 128 Superwash (Bulky: 100% Superwash Merino Wool, 128 yards).
Joe got socks. The socks I knit him in Berroco Comfort fit him like gym socks and he's a happy camper (Worsted: 50% Nylon, 50% Acrylic, 210 yards).
Thing #1 got a Tucker Hat knit with Cascade Spuntaneous (Super Bulky: 100% Merino, 109 yards).
Thing #2 asked me for a bulky shrug about a week before the holidays. She prefaced the request with, "Is it too late to ask for something knit?". How could I say no? At any rate, she knew it wouldn't be ready for the Holidays. The yarn is Cascade 128 Superwash.
As for me, my family and friends know me well. My gifts encompassed a few of my favorite things: knitting bags/accessories, wine, the color purple, and dogs (and not necessarily in that order).
A few more of my favorites things.
