So, everyone...are you all done with your holiday gift knitting?  What kind of projects did you make for friends and family?

I made 5 scarves, 2 hats and 90% of a handbag (uhm, that one won't get sent until after the New Year, I suspect!).

I will post photos after Christmas so I don't ruin any surprises!

I only made one knitted gift this year - a scarf for my future sister in law.  

Last year I made scarfs for EVERYONE, about a dozen family members.  The sister in law wasn't really family last year.

They were very well recieved, but I wasn't up to repeating that with a different article, such as hats.  I've been practicing selfish knitting this year, working on a pair of socks and a sweater for myself.

Next year I might try to make knitted items again but I don't think I can do it ever year.

I knit a scarf for my sister in pink and purple splash yarn.  it's light, airy, and fuzzy so she might actually be able to wear it here in Houston.  She loved it and I forgot to take a picture for posting!  I'll have to chase her down this week.

I only made a couple small things this year, although I started larger things for a couple people that will be gifts next year... my ambition far exceeded my time frame, heh.

Scarf for the boyfriend:

Not that you can really see the pattern, but it's sort of a spread-out ribbed seed stitch;  it came out squishy and good and he loves it.

Ornaments for my friend Erin:

Like Midtowner, I went all out with handmade things last year - and I think it was scarves, too - and typical of me, I waited far too late to start them.  Everything was finished on time, but I think I burned myself out.  I'm planning on more handmades for next year.  Smiley

I'd like the pattern for those snowflakes too!  I assume they are crochet?
