staralee, I love your step-mom's wrap thingie!

I am almost DONE!

Let's see, I got everything mailed yesterday that had to mailed. That included: scarf for dad, scarf for brother, baby Uggs for niece, felted bag for sister-in-law. I also made the niece a Christmas stocking duplicating the ones our grandmother made for my brother and I. Yay!

Still to finish: Michelle's felted bag, which I am absolutely in love with (will post pictures later) The colors are very Michelle and I love how the shape turned out. Unfortunately, I forgot to crochet a loop for closure before I felted it, so I need to figure out a solution for that. I think I will either crochet and hand-felt a cord and then stitch it on separately, or I may use leather thong if I can find something I like. I do have the perfect button for it!

Still to begin (ack!): Two simple hats, knit in the round, for the two guys. I'll get these started today, I just hope I have the right size needles.

Wow, I finished just in the knick of time - I was still knitting at dinner last night and snuck a couple of gifts to people when their backs were turned  Smiley

OK, the family - this stuff all got mailed Monday - I've already posted my brother's scarf and my niece's booties. Here's my dad's Irish Hiking Scarf:



And my sister-in-law's decorated Sophie bag:



I really wish I had a better picture of that bag. It's so darn cute.

My other gifts - all for the people I work with. Bill and Chris both got hats out of Manos del Uruguay - Bill in variegated browns and Chris in blue. They both liked them a lot and the hats suit each of their personalities. They both couldn't believe I knitted for them while I was going so crazy with all my other projects!

Bill:


Chris:



And finally, one of my favorite things ever - Michelle's bag. I love it, she loves it. So perfect for her. Yay!



And, not knitted, but I made a stocking for my niece as well:



Wow. Next year I start in September.

Dramageek - where did you get the pattern for Michelle's bag?  That is the most fabulous bag I've seen in a while.

thanks!

I actually made it up! It's done in two colors of Cascade 220 - the darker one looks brown but it's a really cool olivey tweed with flecks of orange and turquoise in it. I can't remember what I did exactly but it's shaped similarly to the Sophie bag - garter stitch for the bottom, pick up stitches all around and knit in the round decreasing as needed for shaping. I did three i-cords to braid for the handle.

Thanks for the compliment!
