My mom got pretty spoiled craft-wise this year, i made her entire present and included 10 items!  My dad however, is a bit harder to craft for (I make jewelery . . . he's a boy . . . ).  I made four items for him and bought the rest.  i might split these up a bit too, since his birthday is the weekend after father's day (poor guy gets screwed . . . I try to make sure he gets two sets of presents!  especially since I'm an only child  Undecided)
So, here's what I made him!
A set of 3 toiletry bags (he's a guitar player!)

with a funky skull print lining

And a scarf! a modeled by his loving daughter (who secretly wants to keep it!):

and a close up of the stitch pattern (raised brick stitch (crocheted)) in a heathered grey merino wool. YUMMY!

Hope you guys like!!! Smiley
